Lipitor dercreases Efavirenz??
Jun 24, 2005
Hi Dr. Henry... you just answered my question about Toenail fungus, but added something that surprised me... you said Lipitor can affect Efavirenz. I knew that efavirenz can affect Lipitor levels, but had understood it didn't seem to work the other way around, fortunately. Is this a serious issue? My Dr. is not aware of it. What statin, if any, doen not affect Efavirenz? Thanks
Response from Dr. Henry
The effect of lipitor on efavirenz levels has generally been modest and not clinically significant. Pravastatin may have the least interaction potential but may be less potent. KH
