This drug is a combination of lamivudine and zidovudine. It may be used alone or with other medications to help control your HIV infection, thereby improving your quality of life. It also lowers your risk of getting HIV disease complications (e.g., new infections, cancer). Both zidovudine and lamivudine belong to a class of drugs known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
Lamivudine/zidovudine is not a cure for HIV infection and it does not prevent the spread of HIV to others through sexual contact or blood contamination (e.g., sharing dirty needles).
