Theraputic drug monitoring
Oct 19, 2001

My doctor says he finds no lab offering theraputic drug monitoring for Efavirenze (Sustiva). I would like to get tested to determine if on-going side effects reflect high drug level. Can I direct my doctor to a source of testing?

Response from Dr. Henry

I also have not found a commmercial lab that is running Sustiva (efavirenz) drug levels but several of the labs are working on developing that assay. If anyone in cyberland knows of a lab that is running that assay-speak up! KH
