The information on this product's packaging is Turkish language only.

Uses
Epivir Oral Solution (Lamivudine) is used to treat HIV infections. It is prescribed as part of a combination antiretroviral treatment plan. This means that it is used together with other drugs. The main ingredient in this drug (often referred to as 3TC) belongs to a class of medications called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI). It works by inhibiting the action of a certain enzyme (reverse transcriptase) which is needed for the virus to multiply.

Although treatment with this medicine will not cure HIV (and will also not prevent it from being spread to others), it can reduce the viral load in the body, while also lessening the risk of developing AIDS and other illness that may occur as a result of HIV. In some cases, this medicine may be used in combination with another type of drug to prevent healthcare workers or people who may have accidentally been exposed to the virus from becoming infected.

Dosage and Administration
Epivir Oral Solution (Lamivudine) needs to be taken exactly as directed by your doctor. The solution should be taken with a measuring spoon or medicine cup, to ensure that the correct amount is taken. Adults being treated with this medicine are usually told to take 300mg per day. This is generally given as 150mg (15ml of the solution) twice per day or else 300mg (30ml of the solution) once per day. If you are changing from taking it twice daily to a once daily regimen, your doctor will provide special instructions, which you need to follow.

Side effects
Possible side effects of Epivir Oral Solution (Lamivudine) include:

  • Chills
  • Tiredness
  • Hair loss
  • Blocked nose
  • Sleep problems

If you notice any side effects, you should tell your doctor. Seek medical attention immedaitely if you experience numbness or a burning sensation affecting the toes or fingers, muscular pain, signs of infection, enlargement of the thyroid, weight loss or any other symptoms of a serious reaction.

Precautions
There is a risk of a severe and potentially fatal condition (lactic acidosis) associated with this drug. Although the risk is small, it is recommended that you discuss this with your doctor before starting treatment. In addition to this, if you suffer from hepatitis B and HIV, your hepatitis may worsen if you discontinue taking this medicine. Ask your doctor for more details.

Patients should note that sharing syringes, razors and toothbrushes should be avoided, as this can spread HIV. Also, unprotected sex may transmit the virus to others, and you are advised to use a barrier method of contraception (such as condoms) during all sexual contact.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Epivir Oral Solution (Lamivudine) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
