Side effects should not be increased much with your alpha blocker and Sustiva. Week off therapy not recommended when on a Sustiva based regimen due to lack of data regarding risk for resistance. Also, there may be an interaction between Sustiva and Lexiva so may need to boost the Lexiva with ritonavir. KH
