Duovir-N (Lamivudine, Zidovudine, Nevirapine)

Almost the only way you can contract the virus that causes AIDS is through some risky behavior that leads to an exchange of body fluids.
“If you avoid risky behaviors, your chances of getting AIDS are pretty slim,” Herrell says.
To set the record straight, you can’t get AIDS from casual, nonsexual contact— from mosquitoes, toilet seats, pools, hot tubs or phones. Or even from repeated contact with an infected family member, including the sharing of utensils.
So how do you get AIDS? Through blood transfusions or exposure to HIV-infected blood or blood products. You can get it by using HIV-infected needles. Babies whose mothers are infected can get it via their shared bloodstream. And you can get it through risky sexual practices—far and away the most common mode of transmission.
Once the virus enters the body, it gradually dismantles the immune system. Initially, disease-fighting white blood cells are able to fight back and antibodies are made against the virus (when a man tests HIV-positive it means those antibodies have been found in his blood). But when the virus is inside a cell, it cannot be attacked by the antibodies. HIV-infected cells congregate in the lymph nodes, where they become virus factories, churning out new versions of HIV.
A man who is HIV-positive can remain healthy for niany years. But almost always, HIV persists in cell membranes, lying silently until—sometimes more than ten years after the initial infection—the viruses burst out of the lymph nodes, renew their assault on the immune system and cause AIDS. Ultimately, the virus triumphs and the man succumbs to a crushing array of opportunistic diseases such as pneumonia, tuberculosis and Kaposi’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, that take advantage of the body’s weakened defenses.
