Dutrebis is a prescription medication used to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

Dutrebis is a single product containing 2 medications: lamivudine and raltegravir.

Lamivudine belongs to a group of drugs called nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), which block a process HIV and viruses need to reproduce.

Raltegravir belongs to a group of drugs called integrase inhibitors. This medication works by blocking the activity of a substance in the virus (HIV) called HIV integrase which is required to make more viruses.
