For HIV Infection: “I have been on nevirapine along with two other drugs for almost 20 years. I have had *no* side effects from nevirapine. I would rate it 5 stars except for having to do the lower initial lead-in dose, which is VERY IMPORTANT to prevent an allergic reaction to this drug.”

For HIV Infection: “I've been taking this along with Truvada for about eight years. The ONLY apparent side effect was that bright lights and white things appeared more vivid and bright for a few hours after taking the tablets. It's a weird one but I recently had to change to a new regime as I went from 8 years undetectable to around 500 viral load and the brightness thing has gone. I've been quite unenthusiastic for the last 3-4 years so I'll be interested to see if that was caused by the Nevirapine/Truvada. I will write another review in a couple of months.... UK, NHS so no charge. Thank goodness for the NHS.”

The first few years I had nothing, but years after I lost hairs on head and got hairs on body my DHT level got high because of liver dysfunction. Weight gain, gas and bloating.... Also I had side effect that I love ( I now have memories of my childhood and even...few PAST LIVEs!) I have such strong memory of past....”
