Lamivudine and cotrimoxazole
Apr 18, 2006

Dear doctor, I have read a book about HIV treatment and there is one drug,Lamivudine, that has interaction with Cotrimoxazole. But in reality the doctor never do dose adjustment (the patient takes 960mg of Cotrimoxazole and 300mg of Lamivudine daily). Why there is no dose adjustment for this?

Response from Dr. Wohl

Dear Vatana,

I don't know of any significant drug interactions between lamivudine (3TC, Epivir) and cotrimoxazole (Septra, Bactrim). These drugs are frequently co-administered.
