In brief: New drugs better
Azt (zidovudine) is an old drug with considerable toxicity.
It's not widely used in the U.S. Anymore. The many antiretroviral agents that have taken its place can still have side effects, but they are far safer and better tolerated than the older drugs...And far safer and less toxic than HIV infection.
