In brief: Depends
The amount of time for resistance to happen to azt (or zidovudine) depends on how adherent one is in taking their HIV medications.
Standard HIV regimen usually includes at least a combination of 3 medications, often called haart (highly active anti-retroviral therapy). If someone is close to 100% adherent to their haart, resistance is very unlikely. However, lesser adherence leads to resistance.
