|sustiva and cafergot
Oct 22, 2008
I just started on sustiva and combivir four days ago. I also had migraine attacks for which I take cafergot. Is there a drug-drug interaction between sustiva and cafergot? Many thanks!
Response from Dr. Henry
There is a potentially serious interaction between efavirenz and Cafergot (increasig risk for ergot toxicity) so would discuss with your HIV specialist who might seek consultation from a neurologist and/or a pharmacist. KH
