replacing efavirenz with nevirapine when atripla produces rash
Jan 6, 2012

hi doctor, can we use a nevirapine based regimen (zidovudine+lamivudine+nevirapine) if atripla produces severe rash? i dont have access to PIs, that is the problem. best wishes.

Response from Dr. Henry

In many situations, with careful clinical monitoring, patients experiencing a severe efavirenz related rash can be switched to nevirapine though data on that is modest. KH
