Hi my name is Edgar; im taking convivir (lamivudina y zidovudina) y efavirenz; but i suspend efavirenz because it cause me anxiety and feel very nervous Could yuo recoment other medicine to reoplace it?

Response from Dr. Lee

Please do not stop just one part of your regimen. It is important that these meds are taken in combinations. Talk to your doctor about other options for replacing the Efavirenz ASAP! (Consider Virammune.)

Be well.
