|viramune once or twice per day?
Aug 1, 2007
My clinical trial nurse told me that I could take my viramune once per day 400 mg instead of twice per day 200 mg morning and night. Is this ok?
Response from Dr. Young
Yes, it's ok.
Nevirapine (Viramune) is approved as a twice daily drug. However, nevirapine is widely used (including many of my patients) as a once-daily, just as your clinical trials nurse has instructed.
