    12 years on Combivir with no known negative impact. Just a word to the wise. The drug Reyataz raised my liver enzymes in 3 categories to over 325. This could have destroyed my liver and, at 67 years of age I doubt I would be a likely candidate for a transplant. Doctors are busy and don't remember everything they should. If you are prescribed this drug, insist on a follow up blood draw in 3-4 weeks. Be proactive in your own health. Good Luck!

    1-2-2009: This has worked fine for the last 5 previous years. My doctor wants to remove me from it because of potential of lipodistrophy in the face. I have suffered no side effects from using combivir, and am reluctant to part with it. For me, it's a matter of 'The Devil you know versus the Devil you don't".

    After a needle-stick w/used needle, I got prescribed Combivir for prevention of blood borne pathogen's; the benefits seemed clear, the side-effects sound life threatening my experience nausea (helps to eat bread, crakers,pretzels any thing w/startch about every 2 hrs pretty much have to force feed yourself), vomiting, stomach feeling constantly raw very painful, lots of uncomforable BM's. I'm writing this review so others in the Medical field or anybody that helps patients that may be exposed to blood borne pathogen's will practice extreme caution.

    I am actually taking Atripla. I work in the Pharmaceutical industry and Combivir is actually going to be available in it's generic form this year. According to Excellus BlueCross Blueshield Association looks like some time November 2012 or there abouts. This is something you may want to speak with your Doctor about.
