does stalanev cause renal failure, if so after how long and what is the remedy

Response from Dr. Henry

Stalanev (I believe is a generic HIV drug containing stavudine, lamuvidoe, and nevirapine). Renal problems not common (more often due to HIV or other medicalproblems) but can occur sometimes in associaiton with other side effects from the medications. If drug is causing renal problem recommended to switch off the offending drug if alternative is available. Recommend discussing with the patient/s HIV doctor and possibly kidney specialist. KH

ARV Resistance 2
Possible blackout as side effect of meds?
