Will the new once a day version of Sustiva reduce the side effects seen from taking Sustiva? My thought is that if you take only once daily it MIGHT be less likely to cause problems with concentration...ect. ?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Sustiva/Stocrin (efavirenz) has usually been taken once daily. Since the 600mg tablet is equivalent to 3 of the 200mg capsules, it is not expected that the new tablet is going to change the side effect profile.
