Combivir > AZT & 3TC
Apr 28, 2000

I am resistant to azt and 3tc. However, I am told that Combivir acts more as a separate drug than as an actual combination of the other two. Is this correct and do you think combivir might work?

Response from Dr. Cohen

NO and NO. Combivir has been shown to be identical to taking AZT 300 mg and 3TC 150 mg as separate pills. The beauty of combivir is in the convenience, but there is no other magic to it.
