What should I avoid while taking Combivir?

People taking Combivir should take it exactly as prescribed by their doctor; they should not take more or less than their prescribed dose or share it with other people. Each person's dosage of the medication is individualized to work with his or her other medications and the level of his or her disease. Combivir treats human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, but does not prevent the transmission of HIV to other people. Therefore, you should avoid sharing needles or other hygiene tools with other people and avoid having unprotected sex. Combivir may also lower your ability to fight infections, so avoid people with colds, the flu, or any contagious disease.
