Peripheral neuropathy. Nausea/vomiting. Anorexia. Headache. Malaise. Neutropenia. Cutaneous responses. Alopecia, erythema, macules, papules, pruritis, and urticaria have been seen rarely with lamivudine (65). Special Considerations Pediatric patients. In pediatric clinical trials, 14% of children on monotherapy and 15% of those on combination therapy with lamivudine developed pancreatitis. 50 Antiviral Agents Mucocutaneous manifestations. When mucocutaneous manifestations are seen with Combivir, there appears to be an equal chance that zidovudine or lamivudine may be responsible.

For persons who have not been vaccinated against either virus, however, a simpler alternative to five injections is to receive the combination of vaccines against both viruses, which only requires three shots. Approved therapies for hepatitis B include interferon alpha, lamivudine, and adefovir, although a number of other treatments are under study. Hepatitis C is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in many parts of the world and infections are increasing rapidly. Unfortunately, because of the rapid mutation rate of this virus, vaccine development is progressing relatively slowly.

Special Considerations Pancreatitis. When compared with didanosine, stauvidine, and hydroxyurea, zidovudine causes the fewest cases of pancreatitis (57). 42 Antiviral Agents Pregnancy. Zidovudine has been shown to reduce perinatal transmission. However, many women who are HIV-positive have reservations about taking the drug. Concerns revolve around fear of toxic effects on the mother, fear of toxic effects on the baby, fear of drug resistance, the belief that “healthy” women don’t need zidovudine, and having given birth to a healthy baby without using zidovudine.
