What is Duovir-N used for?

DUOVIR-N Tabletis a combination of three drugs commonly used in the management of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. Both zidovudine and lamivudine belong to the nucleoside analog class of antiretroviral drugs. Both drugs act by terminating the growth of the DNA chain and inhibiting the reverse transcriptase (RT) of HIV. Nevirapine is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI). It acts by directly inhibiting RT.

Each tablet of DUOVIR-N containshalf of the commonly prescribed daily doses of zidovudine, lamivudine, and nevirapine. Usually, all three drugs are to be administered twice daily, permitting a fixed-dose combination to be formulated. With the availability of this combination formulation, patients may be better able to adhere to triple drug regimens, thereby enhancing compliance.

How does Duovir-N work?

Duovir-N tablets contain a combination of three antiretroviral drugs; nevirapine, zidovudine, and lamivudine, which are effective only against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). These three drugs each work by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT) which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Nevirapine in Duovir-N tablets is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI); nucleosides are the precursors to the building blocks of DNA and RNA. Nevirapine in Duovir-N tablets acts by binding to a specific site on the RT enzyme, the enzyme's active site known as the NNRTI pocket, disrupting the catalytic site of the enzyme, and blocking its action in a manner that is noncompetitive with nucleosides. Zidovudine and lamivudine are both nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), which means that they block the action of RT by competing with one of the nucleosides needed to transcribe the viral RNA into DNA, becoming incorporated into the chain of newly synthesized viral DNA and preventing it from growing (chain termination). Zidovudine is an analogue of thymidine and lamivudine is an analogue of cytidine. The combined action of the three antiretroviral drugs in Duovir-N tablets prevents the integration of the virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell by 2 different mechanisms, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced, and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Duovir-N slows down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

What does Duovir-N contain?

Duovir-N tablets contain a combination of the active ingredients nevirapine (200mg) lamivudine (150mg) and zidovudine (300mg), which are antiretroviral drugs that are used to treat HIV infection.

Treating HIV infection with Duovir N Tablet (Lamivudine + Nevirapine + Zidovudine)

Duovir-N tablets contain a combination of three antiretroviral drugs zidovudine, lamivudine, and nevirapine, which are effective only against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection, and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infections (infections that would not normally be harmful), including pneumonia, herpes virus infections, and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infection. If too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The three antiretroviral drugs in Duovir-N tablets each work by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate, as it converts viral RNA to DNA so that viral DNA can become integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells allowing the virus can replicate. Duovir-N prevents the integration of HIV into the DNA of the infected CD4+ cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced, and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Duovir-N tablets slow down the replication of HIV within your body but do not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

What are the side effects of Duovir N Tablet (Lamivudine + Nevirapine + Zidovudine)?

What are the health risks when taking Duovir-N?

Lactic acidosis is a rare but potentially fatal condition that has been reported when taking an antiretroviral nucleoside analog, such as in Duovir-N tablets. It is caused by a build-up of excess lactic acid in the blood due to liver damage, which is usually associated with hepatomegaly (liver enlargement) with steatosis (build-up of fat in the liver) and may cause pancreatitis, liver failure, or renal failure. Symptoms begin within a few months of treatment and include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, loss of appetite, weight loss, and motor weakness. Nevirapine in Duovir-N tablets can cause severe and life-threatening skin reactions and serious liver failure, this is why it is important that you have already tried nevirapine before using combination therapy.
