Response from Dr. Henry

Elevated blood presssure has been rarely linked (likely < 1%)to use of efavirenz either in studies or practice. High blood presssure is common in the general population so often hard to link a single drug to aggravating high blood presssure particularly when taking multiple drugs to further complicate the assessment.
