User Reviews for Lamivudine/zidovudine to treat Occupational Exposure

Also known as: Combivir

It'sSusie · Taken for less than 1 month April 5, 2015

Combivir (lamivudine / zidovudine): “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,”
