What is Lamivudine?

Lamivudine is a Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor (NRTI) anti-viral drug indicated for the treatment of HIV in combination with other antiretroviral medications, and for the treatment of chronic Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.

Dosing & Administration

The dosage of lamivudine for treating HIV infection differs from the dosage for treating chronic HBV infection. The drug can be used for HIV treatment for adults and children weighing 14 kg or more, and off-label in children under three months, including neonates, for HBV. Lamivudine is also used off-label for HIV post-exposure prophylaxis for occupational and non-occupational exposures, and for HIV vertical transmission prophylaxis in neonates. The medication is available in various preparations and brand names. The product monograph should be consulted for dosage and administration instructions.

Lamivudine requires dose adjustment in patients with a creatinine clearance <= 50 mL/min. No dose adjustments are indicated in liver dysfunction, but lamivudine should be used with caution in these patients.

Contraindications

Lamivudine is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to the drug. Details are provided in the product monograph.

Lamivudine Side Effects

Side effects include:

  • generalized weakness,
  • fatigue,
  • myalgias,
  • nausea/vomiting,
  • abdominal pain,
  • light-headedness,
  • palpations.

A complete list of potential adverse effects is provided in the product monograph. 

Precautions

Lamivudine has been associated with severe and even fatal cases of hepatomegaly with steatosis or lactic acidosis, particularly in women and the obese. Screening and monitoring recommendations are listed the product monograph.

Patients with HBV infection who discontinue lamivudine may experience severe acute exacerbations of hepatitis. As such, laboratory and clinical liver parameters should be closely monitored following discontinuation, as detailed in the product monograph.

Due to its high rate of drug resistance in HBV, lamivudine should only be used if another antiviral HBV drug with less potential for resistance cannot be used.

All patients who test positive for HIV infection should be screened for comorbid HBV and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Co-infected patients should be started on an antiretroviral regimen targeting co-infected viruses, regardless of CD4 counts or viral loads. Current HIV treatment guidelines outline drug regimens and prescribing considerations.

Drug Interactions

Lamivudine is associated with a large number of drug-drug and herbal interactions and contraindications. These are listed in the product monograph. Of particular note, lamivudine should not be used in combination with cladribine or emtricitabine.

Pregnancy & Lactation

Data from the Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry do not show lamivudine to be associated with an increase in the incidence of major birth defects above baseline. If treatment is discontinued for pregnancy, patients should be monitored for exacerbation of HBV infection. Lamivudine is excreted in breast milk. The CDC recommends that all HIV positive women, treated or untreated, avoid breastfeeding to prevent vertical transmission of the virus.

Overdosage

Lamivudine overdose should be treated with standard supportive care. Lamivudine may be dialyzable.

Alternative Brand Names

Lamivudine is also known as 3TC, and is available under the brand names Heptovir, Epivir, and Epivir-HBV and as a component of the combination medications Cimduo, Combivir, Epzicom, Triumeq, and Trizivir.
