Lamivir (Lamivudine Tablets)
Lamivir (Lamivudine Tablets) is indicated for use in conjunction with other antiretroviral medicines to treat HIV-1 infections. It works by stopping the virus from spreading and destroying CD4 helper cells. This medicine is classified as a nucleoside analog and its mechanism of action involves blocking the action of the viral RT (reverse transcriptase, an enzyme that the virus needs to replicate), and this results in the termination of the viral DNA chain. The HIV virus can develop a resistance to drugs, and a particular type of mutation of which occurs in the reverse transcriptase gene (called the M184V mutation) may occur if this medicine is used on its own. Resistance can reduce the effectiveness of the medicine, and to combat this, your physician will also advice concomitant treatment with other medicines to ensure that the infection is kept under control.
