Abacavir Sulfate-Lamivudine

Drug Info for abacavir sulfate-lamivudine

Abacavir is used along with other medications to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Abacavir is in a class of medications called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). It works by decreasing the amount of HIV in the blood. Although abacavir does not cure HIV, it may decrease your chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer. Taking these medications along with practicing safer sex and making other lifestyle changes may decrease the risk of transmitting (spreading) the HIV virus to other people.

Epzicom is used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Abacavir/lamivudine is the generic version of Epzicom. On average Epzicom is quite expensive, at about $1,605 for a supply of 30, 600 mg/300 mg tablets. However, you can use our free OptionRx coupon card to save significantly on Epzicom prices at a participating pharmacy near you.
