|What are the side effects of stockrin
Mar 2, 2008
I have been on stockrin for 5 weeks and am having a terrible time. I feel out of it more and more each day sweating irritable emotional and mentally unstable as well as itchy. It is completely unbarable and getting worse and worse

Stocrine (efavirenz) often causes central nervous system side effects as you are experiencing. For most patients those effects diminish over the first 4 weeks so that perhaps< 10% continue to have annoying side effects after the first month. You need to discuss with your HIV specialist whether there is a switch option for you (nevirapine or a boosted-protease inhibitor for example). KH
