Zidovudine is a combination of dideoxyinosine and dideoxycytidine nucleotides that can be used as an antiretroviral drug to slow down AIDS.

It works by inhibiting the reproduction of HIV in the patient's body.

This drug is prescribed when other medications fail to control the condition. The drug can also be used to treat other viral infections when necessary. 

The drug has some side effects, including headaches, stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, shaking, insomnia, headache, and restlessness.


Zidovudine is primarily used as a treatment for HIV infection. 

 It is also used to treat other conditions, including cytomegalovirus (CMV)  in infants with congenital (present from birth) disease;  continued (chronic) heart failure in patients with AIDS;  chronic liver failure;  pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP);  AIDS-related dementia;  toxoplasmosis  (an opportunistic infection that occurs primarily in individuals with AIDS and that is due to infection with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite); and varicella (chickenpox)  in HIV-infected children and adolescents. 

It is thought to work by slowing down the growth of HIV so the body's immune system can fight off the infection.
