What is Trizivir?

Trizivir is a drug containing the antiretroviral agents abacavir, lamivudine and zidovudine. The combination is used to treat HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection, which is the cause of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Known as nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), these medicines work together to interfere with HIV replication in the blood, which slows the progression of AIDS. Although Trizivir is used to treat HIV infection, it is not a cure. That means that the infection can still be transmitted to others, despite taking Trizivir.
