Retroviral rx. Added toxicity without added effect.
Can retrovir (zidovudine) and stavudine (d4t, zerit) be taken together in an HIV regimen of medicine?
Yes. But the choice of combinations will depend upon assessment by a competent HIV specialist, measuring not only the sensitivity of the virus in a given patient, but the tolerance of that patient to the side-effects of the medicines.
No. No, Retrovir (zidovudine) (azt) and stavudine (d4t or zerit) should never be taken together in an HIV regimen. They are contraindicated as there is antagonism between these two drugs which may lead to lower drug levels, which may be concerning for the development of drug resistance.
