BRAND NAME(S): Viramune
WARNING: See also How to Use, Precautions, and Notes sections. Nevirapine has infrequently caused severe (sometimes fatal) liver and skin reactions (e.g., Stevens-Johnson syndrome, allergic reaction), especially during the first 18 weeks of therapy. These reactions are most likely to occur during the first 6 weeks of therapy but can occur at any time while taking nevirapine. If you develop a rash at any time while using this medication or if you develop unusual fatigue, abdominal or stomach pain, dark urine, loss of appetite, or yellowing of the skin or eyes, seek immediate medical attention (liver function tests should also be done at this time). If you had a severe liver or skin reaction while on this drug in the past, you should not restart therapy with nevirapine again. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
