Response from Dr. Holodniy
You don't indicate what your liver test results were prior to changing to nevirapine, or whether these have remained elevated throughout the course of taking nevirapine or have just increased recently. Although it could be associated with nevirapine, it is hard to conclude with a single lab result, and many other things (infections, meds, etc) can cause an elevation of these blood tests.
