Combivir is a medication used to fight the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Chemically, it is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor. It prevents the HIV virus from changing the genetic make up of healthy T-cells.
Like any powerful drug, there are adverse side effects. Bone marrow problems indicated by fatigue are just one of the effects. Lactic acidosis, which can be fatal and often results in liver disease, is one of the more severe side effects of Combivir.
The FDA has issued new warnings about the use of Combivir and has taken no other action.
If you have suffered severe side affects after using Combivir, you should consider contacting a products liability attorney. An experienced products liability lawyer can help you recover damages for your injuries.
