hi, recently switched from sustiva to viramune + truvada combo. been on Susitva for a long time, with good results except for anxiety. After taking Viramune, feeling like I am putting on weight. Is this normal and temporary??
Response from Dr. Henry
Use of nevirapine has not been associated with excessive weight gain in comparison to other drugs nor have I observed that problem other than very occasionally so I would not consider excessive weight gain as normal when efavirenz is switched to nevirapine due to side effects in the setting of good HIV control.
