comivir prescription

Jan 26, 2013

Is it normal to be prescribed combivir even though my test results were negative?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Combivir (AZT+3TC) is a medication used for the treatment of HIV or for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP).

Though you didn't mention it, could it be that you were prescribed Combivir after a high-risk exposure?

Either way, it seems like you've got some important unanswered questions- these should be addressed with your prescribing doctor.

Be well, BY
