Duovir-N Description

Duovir-N is a fixed dose antiviral medication that contains three active ingredients that work to treat the human immunodeficiency virus, better known as HIV, and for patients that have responded favorably to previous drug therapy. Duovir-N or generic Lamivudine/Zidovudine/Nevirapine is not a cure for HIV, but it is effective at lowering the amount of the virus in your body (viral load). The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

The goal is to reduce the virus’ ability to grow and multiply enough so your immune system has a chance to recover and help fight the virus and improve your CD4 cell numbers. CD4 cells are a type of white blood cells that are important for protecting your body from infections.

Duovir-N Works in Two Locations to Reduce the Virus Population

Lamivudine and Zidovudine are nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) that are prodrugs. This means they are changed in your body into their active forms, which are similar to a naturally occurring chemical that the virus needs to make DNA. So when the virus tries to use a certain enzyme (reverse transcriptase) they actually use the active forms of Lamivudine and Zidovudine which interferes with the enzymes activity.

Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) which also inhibits the same target as the other two drugs, but it works at another location away from the active site to bind to the reverse transcriptase enzyme that blocks the virus’s ability to change the viral DNA (called ribonucleic acid or RNA) so it is now unable to take over cells and reproduce new viruses.

Conditions Treated by Duovir-N

With a proper drug regimen, many of those infected with the HIV virus can still lead productive lives and enjoy each day. If you have sought medical help too late or have refused treatment, the symptoms of HIV will worsen as your immune system becomes weaker. This will leave you vulnerable to opportunistic infections that would otherwise go unnoticed because your immune system would be strong enough to protect you. There are many drugs available to help reduce your viral load and allow your CD4 cells to increase their numbers. Without drugs to stop virus numbers from falling, you will progress to having acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Before Starting Duovir-N

Ask your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking Duovir-N if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide your doctor with a list of any over the counter or prescription drugs you are currently taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements to be certain of avoiding any drug interactions with Duovir-N. Your doctor may then recommend a prescription so you can buy Duovir-N.

Proper Use of Duovir-N

Until you know how Duovir-N will affect you, avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task considered risky if you are not alert and in control. Do not change your dosage or stop taking Duovir-N without discussing it with your primary healthcare worker. Do not share Duovir-N with others, even though they may also have HIV. Duovir-N will not protect you from transmitting this virus so never share anything that may carry body fluids, including needles and razors, and always use effective protection during any sexual acts.
