Jun 14, 2012

currently i'm on Lamzid and nivaropine,i want to switch from Lamzid, to tenofovir or abacavir. what are the side effect of the meds i'm switching to? and what can i do to manage the side effect? if i switch the Lamzid must i take both the tenofovir and abacavir together with the nevaropine? how does it work?

Response from Dr. Henry

When switching from Lamzid (AZT/3TC) then usually would go to tenofovir or abacavir and lamivudine plus the nevirapine (usually dont use abacavir and tenofovir together though it can done is some situations). KH
