It belongs to the family of antiretroviral medication, which are used for the treatment of HIV-infection. This medication slows down the progress of the HIV-virus by preventing it from infecting healthy cells. However, Generic Combivir is not a cure for HIV, and it cannot help cells that have already been infected with the virus. This medication can also be an effective treatment against Hepatitis B and can reduce the amount of this virus in the body to very low levels.
