combivir: once or twice a day?

Apr 11, 2004

I just started combivir with sustiva, first scrip. Each once a day. Three knowledgeable friends have alerted me that combivir should be taken twice a day. Doctor says ONCE a day. Will once a day be the right thing to do for combivir?

Response from Dr. Young

I would definitely NOT recommend that Combivir (AZT/3TC) be taken once daily as part of a Combivir/efavirenz first regimen.

You're doctor is wrong. BY

HIV Similar to Diabetes?
