Combivir & Efavirenz
Jun 11, 2008

How long can one continue taking this combination?

Response from Dr. Henry

There is no defined limit to how long patients who are doing well can continue to take efavirenz + Combivir. The failure rate in compliant patients who are on that combination and suppressed appears to be very low (? < 5%/year) so effectiveness for > 20 years seems likely (though data so far limited to less than a decade since efavirenz hasn't been available for longer than that)> KH
