MUMBAI Oct 18 (Reuters) - Indian drugmaker Cipla has received a tentative U.S. FDA approval for its HIV treatment tablets, which have a combination of lamivudine, nevirapine and zidovudine drugs, the drug regulator's website showed.

Cipla sells the combination drug under the brand name 'Duovir N' outside the United States.
