Lamivudine is one of several medications that is prescribed concurrently to help patients with HIV keep the virus from spreading throughout their body. This medication does not protect against most HIV-related illnesses; it works by preventing the spread of HIV and Hepatitis-B through the infected person’s system.

Warnings/Side Effects

This medication does not stop the HIV virus from spreading from person to person. HIV positive patients should use protection when engaging in sexual activity.

This medication may increase the risk of heart attack when used in conjunction with certain other HIV medications such as Abacavir.

Lamivudine can cause liver damage, resulting in a dangerous condition known as lactic acidosis. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience severe stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, brown urine, tarry stools or jaundice.
