IS AZT AND RESCRIPTOR A GOOD COMBINATION?
Response from Dr. Kakuda
AZT (zidovudine) and Rescriptor (delavirdine) is unlikely to suppress HIV unless it is used with a third drug. This combination may be good if the viral load (HIV-RNA) is small and your CD4 count is high. In general, most guidelines (DHHS, IAS, BHIV, etc.) would not recommend just two drugs. Thomas Kakuda, Pharm.D.
