How do you take this big pill without cutting it? I ask My HIV Specialist about cutting and she does not know.
Response from Dr. Henry
Some patients take with various liquids such as chocolate milk, icy drinks, et cetera (discuss with pharmacist) to make swallowing easier. In some cases pill is cut but blood tests and even levels of efavirenz in blood may need to be monitored since drug absorption may be impacted in unpredictable ways. KH
Any side effect alternative?
