Combivir (lamivudine / zidovudine) for HIV Infection: “Unfortunately Combivir didn't work well for me. My red blood cells dropped very drastically. I had to get a blood transfusion within 2 months of starting Combivir”
Combivir (lamivudine / zidovudine) for Occupational Exposure: “I was stuck with a patient's bloody needle when he passed out unexpectedly and had to start Combivir for HIV prevention; given that said patient is active duty military (I am too), the chances of him having anything were minimal, but I chose to take it as a precaution anyway. The side effects were horrible: extreme fatigue, unrelenting daily nausea that I had to go and beg the doc to prescribe me zofran for, joint pain, can't eat more than a few bites of anything because I feel full, dizziness, and just general malaise almost like when you have the flu. Still got about two weeks to go on this stuff, hoping for the best,”
Combivir (lamivudine / zidovudine) for HIV Infection: “Its a good medication for treating HIV never had a problem and it was well tolerable with no side affects.”
Combivir (lamivudine / zidovudine) for HIV Infection: “Well it's kept me alive for 13 years with the combination of crixivan. I've haven't had many side effects and it's kept my t cells at over 1000 and undetectable. Thank you for this wonderful drug.”
