Is Combivir & Abacavir make Triziver
Nov 19, 2011

I women aged 51 and I was put on Combivir and Abacavir after I failed to get Triziver now Am experiencing pain on the heart and all over the body. That i feel its not normal please can you assist.

Response from Dr. Young


Combivir (AZT+3TC) + Ziagen (abacavir) = Trizivir. Be aware that triple nucleoside therapy (like Trizivir) is no longer recommended (except in exceptional circumstances) by current treatment guidelines.

As for your symptoms, it would be unusual to have a new side effect after the switch, but anyone experiencing chest pain should contact their health care provider promptly.
