Sustiva is used to treat HIV infection in combination with other anti-HIV medications. If Sustiva is the only drug you take to treat HIV infection, it may stop working.

Sustiva is an oral medication that is used for the treatment of infections with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It is similar to nevirapine (Viramune) and delavirdine (Rescriptor).

Sustiva is also known as Efavirenz, Stocrin.

Sustiva is in a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and lamivudine (Epivir). During infection with HIV, the HIV virus multiplies within the body's cells. The newly-formed viruses then are released from the cells and spread throughout the body where they infect other cells. In this manner, the infection continually spreads to new, uninfected cells that the body is continually producing, and HIV infection is perpetuated. When producing new viruses, the HIV virus must manufacture new DNA for each virus. Reverse transcriptase is the enzyme that the virus uses to form this new DNA. Sustiva directly inhibits the activity of reverse transcriptase and blocks the production of DNA and new viruses. Unlike zidovudine, efavirenz does not need to be converted to an active form. Sustiva does not kill existing HIV virus and it is not a cure for HIV.


Take this drug by mouth, generally once daily as directed. Take on an empty stomach with a glass of water. Taking Sustiva with food, especially a high-fat meal can lead to increased blood levels of the drug and increase your risk of having side effects.

Best taken at bedtime during the first month of use. Using this drug regularly at bedtime may decrease certain side effects. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not take more or less of this drug than prescribed, or stop taking it unless directed to do so by your doctor. Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Sustiva suddenly.


If you overdose Sustiva and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.


Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Efavirenz treatment has been associated with increases in HDL-cholesterol concentrations, and the circulating levels of the drug have been related to the multidrug resistance gene 1 (MDR-1) C3435T polymorphism. The changes in the measured lipid parameters were evaluated in 59 HIV-infected patients initiating efavirenz-based treatment at baseline and at 12 months of follow-up. Efavirenz treatment increased HDL-cholesterol. The changes in concentrations appeared to be influenced by the MDR-1 gene polymorphism, in which CC > CT > TT.

Unbound drug is the pharmacodynamically relevant concentration. This study aimed to determine if chronologic age or markers of biologic aging, such as the frailty phenotype and p16(INK4a) gene expression, altered unbound pharmacokinetics (PKs) of efavirenz (EFV) and atazanavir/ritonavir (ATV/RTV). Sixty human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected participants receiving EFV and 31 receiving ATV/RTV provided 1 to 11 samples to quantify total and unbound plasma concentrations. Population PK models with total and unbound concentrations simultaneously described are developed for each drug. The unbound fractions for EFV, ATV, and RTV are 0.65%, 5.67%, and 0.63%, respectively. Covariate analysis suggests RTV unbound PK is sensitive to body size; unbound fraction of RTV is 34% lower with body mass index (BMI) above 30 kg/m(2) . No alterations in drug clearance or unbound fraction with age, frailty, or p16(INK4a) expression were observed. Assessing functional and physiologic aging markers to inform potential PK changes is necessary to determine if drug/dosing changes are warranted in the aging population.

There were 926 HIV-infected patients undertaking ART in the hospital during the study period. Among them, 23.2% of patients undergoing lopinavir-based regimen, 8.4% efavirenz-based regimen, 4.2% darunavir-based regimen, 3.3% nevirapine-based regimen, 2.4% raltegravir-based regimen and 2.3% atazanavir-based regimen developed dyslipidemia. There were 76 patients (8.2%) who needed management of dyslipidemia (Table 1). Among them, 97% received lipid-lowering agents, and 17% switched to lipid-friendly ART (atazanavir, boosted atazanavir, boosted darunavir, nevirapine or raltegravir) despite statins or fibrates used. Mean values (mg/dL) of TC/ TG/LDL were, respectively, 279/422/139 before enrolment, 209/270/114 at 4-12 weeks and 206/250/121 at 48 weeks (p<0.05 for baseline compared to 4-12 weeks and 1 year, respectively). No obvious changes in HDL were noted. In Cox proportional hazard model, patients who received lopinavir (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR], 0.293; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.110-0.784; p=0.015) or efavirenz (aHR, 0.185; 95% CI, 0.072-0.447; p=0.005) were less likely to achieve normalization of TC (<200 mg/dL) and TG (<200 mg/dL). Modification of ART (aHR, 1.807; 95% CI, 0.828-3.944; p=0.137) did not change the outcome (Figure 1).

The study confirms the higher level (60%) of exposure to HBV in HIV patients in Limpopo Province, as well as the high (20%) prevalence of HBsAg positivity and occult hepatitis B (33.7%). However, further studies are warranted to corroborate the benefit of lamivudine-containing HAART regimens, as HIV/HBV co-infected patients have a higher liver-related mortality if hepatitis B is not treated.

Efavirenz (EFV) has been associated with reductions in vitamin D (25[OH]D) and tenofovir (TDF) with increased bone turnover, reductions in bone mineral density (BMD) and renal tubular dysfunction. We hypothesized that switching from fixed-dose TDF/emtricitabine (FTC)/EFV to darunavir/ritonavir monotherapy (DRV/r) might increase 25(OH)D and BMD, and improve renal tubular function.

Patients from 67 study centres on five continents were enrolled between Sept 14, 2006, and June 5, 2008. Eligible patients were infected with HIV-1, had viral RNA (vRNA) concentration of more than 5000 copies per mL, and no baseline resistance to efavirenz, tenofovir, or emtricitabine. Patients were randomly allocated by interactive voice response system in a 1:1 ratio (double-blind) to receive 400 mg oral raltegravir twice daily or 600 mg oral efavirenz once daily, in combination with tenofovir and emtricitabine. The primary efficacy endpoint was achievement of a vRNA concentration of less than 50 copies per mL at week 48. The primary analysis was per protocol. The margin of non-inferiority was 12%. This study is registered with, number NCT00369941.

The second in a series reviewing the HIV/AIDS antiretroviral drugs. This review summarizes the non-protease inhibitor antiretrovirals: nucleoside and nucleotide analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), the nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), and cell membrane fusion inhibitors. In an overview format for primary care physicians and psychiatrists, this review presents the mechanism of action, side effects, toxicities, and drug interactions of these agents.

The occurrence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease and hepatitis C is common in injection drug users, most of whom are opioid dependent. Methadone pharmacotherapy has been the most widely used treatment for opioid addiction in this population. Methadone has significant, adverse drug-drug interactions with many antiretroviral therapeutic agents that can contribute to nonadherence and poor clinical outcomes in this high-risk population. The present article summarizes current knowledge about interactions between methadone and antiretroviral medications. Buprenorphine is the newest agent available for the treatment of opioid dependence and may have fewer adverse interactions with antiretroviral agents. Buprenorphine has a significant pharmacokinetic interaction with efavirenz but no pharmacodynamic interaction; therefore, simultaneous administration of these drugs is not associated with opioid withdrawal, as has been observed with methadone. This promising finding may simplify the treatment of opioid-dependent patients with HIV disease and should also improve clinical outcomes for persons coinfected with HIV and hepatitis C virus.

The 4-benzyl and 4-benzoyl-3-dimethylaminopyridinones 13 and 14 are representatives of a new class of highly potent non nucleoside type inhibitors of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase. To conduct SAR studies on these two lead compounds, 102 new analogues were prepared. Thirty-three compounds displayed nanomolar range activity in vitro against wild-type HIV-1, and among these, 18 were active against the 103N, Y181C, and Y188L mutant strains with IC50 values inferior to 1 microM. Evaluation of this group of analogues against an additional eight single [100I, 101E, 106A, 138K, 179E, 190A, 190S, 227C] and four double HIV mutant strains [100I + 103N, 101E + 103N, 103N + 181C, and 227L + 106A], which are often present in HIV infected patients, permitted the selection of eight compounds, 17x, 18b, 18c, 18f, 18g, 27, 30, and 42, which are globally more active than the lead molecules 13/14, emivirine and the currently used NNRTI, nevirapine. Further comparison of the 3'-CN-substituted benzoylpyridinone compound 18c, and the corresponding 3'-acrylonitrile-substituted analogue 30, to efavirenz, the reference molecule in anti-HIV therapy today, revealed that the pyridinone analogues displayed a superior inhibition profile in the in vitro cellular assay system. These results form a solid basis for continued optimization of the pyridinone series.

Along with nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and protease inhibitors (PIs), non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) have gained a definitive and important place in the treatment of HIV-1 infections, and are in rapid development. These compounds can be grouped into two classes: the first generation NNRTIs, mainly discovered by random screening, and the second generation NNRTIs, developed as a result of comprehensive strategies involving molecular modelling, rationale-based drug synthesis, biological and pharmacokinetic evaluations. The recent boom of NNRTIs is mainly due to their antiviral potency, high specificity and low toxicity. The rapid emergence of drug-resistant HIV-1 strains induced by the first generation drugs is a disadvantage bypassed, in part, by the broad spectrum second generation NNRTIs. Starting from the first generation, this review will focus on the second generation NNRTIs dealing with the recent and most interesting published results, highlighting the guidelines for the development of a third generation of NNRTIs.

A Medline review of Phase II and III trials involving EVG as well as a review of abstracts from major HIV and infectious disease conferences from 2010 to 2011 was conducted. EVG produces rapid and durable virologic suppression when combined with active background therapy. Trials investigating the efficacy of once-daily co-formulated elvitegravir/cobicistat/emtricitabine/tenofovir (EVG/COBI/FTC/TDF) demonstrate a high rate of virologic suppression with fewer CNS and psychiatric adverse events compared with co-formulated efavirenz/emtricitabine/tenofovir. The resistance profile for EVG is similar to raltegravir.

Etravirine (ETV) is a second-generation nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitor (NNRTI) introduced recently for salvage antiretroviral treatment after the emergence of NNRTI-resistant human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). Following its introduction, two naturally occurring mutations in HIV-1 RT, V106I and V179D, were listed as ETV resistance-associated mutations. However, the effect of these mutations on the development of NNRTI resistance has not been analyzed yet. To select highly NNRTI-resistant HIV-1 in vitro, monoclonal HIV-1 strains harboring V106I and V179D (HIV-1(V106I) and HIV-1(V179D)) were propagated in the presence of increasing concentrations of efavirenz (EFV). Interestingly, V179D emerged in one of three selection experiments from HIV-1(V106I) and V106I emerged in two of three experiments from HIV-1(V179D). Analysis of recombinant HIV-1 clones showed that the combination of V106I and V179D conferred significant resistance to EFV and nevirapine (NVP) but not to ETV. Structural analysis indicated that ETV can overcome the repulsive interactions caused by the combination of V106I and V179D through fine-tuning of its binding module to RT facilitated by its plastic structure, whereas EFV and NVP cannot because of their rigid structures. Analysis of clinical isolates showed comparable drug susceptibilities, and the same combination of mutations was found in some database patients who experienced virologic NNRTI-based treatment failure. The combination of V106I and V179D is a newly identified NNRTI resistance pattern of mutations. The combination of polymorphic and minor resistance-associated mutations should be interpreted carefully.

A total of 19 cases of SJS were documented. Eighty-four percent of cases were attributed to nevirapine (NVP) exposure whereas the remaining cases were caused by cotrimoxazole (11%) and efavirenz (5%). Median symptom onset was 22 days after initiation of the offending medication (interquartile range = 14-25 days). At time of SJS, 84% had advanced or severe immunosuppression. Forty-two percent of patients required hospitalization, and no SJS-associated deaths were known to occur. Use of efavirenz was attempted in 8 NVP-associated cases after SJS resolution and was successful in all except 1.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected South African patients (n=468) received blinded lamivudine or emtricitabine, stavudine, and either nevirapine or efavirenz (based on screening viral load). Baseline characteristics were analyzed in univariate and multivariate regression, to identify risk factors for hepatotoxicity (grade 3 or greater increase in serum aminotransferase levels). The occurrence of early hepatotoxicity was 17% in the nevirapine group and 0% in the efavirenz group and was balanced between the lamivudine and emtricitabine arms. Two subjects died of hepatic failure. Independent risk factors were body-mass index (BMI) <18.5, female sex, serum albumin level <35 g/L, mean corpuscular volume >85 buy sustiva fL, plasma HIV-1 RNA load <20,000 copies/mL, aspartate aminotransferase level <75 IU/L, and lactate dehydrogenase level <164 IU/L.

Valproic acid (VPA) has the potential to benefit patients suffering from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated cognitive impairment. The purpose of this study was to determine if VPA affects the plasma concentration of efavirenz (EFV) or lopinavir. HIV type 1 (HIV-1)-infected patients receiving EFV or lopinavir-ritonavir (LPV/r) had 9 or 10 blood samples drawn over 8 to 24 h of a dosing interval at steady state before and after receiving 250 mg of VPA twice daily for 7 days. VPA blood samples drawn before (C(0)) and 8 h after the morning dose (8 h) were compared to blood samples from a group of HIV-1-infected subjects who were taking either buy sustiva combined nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors alone or had discontinued antiretroviral therapy. Pharmacokinetic parameters were calculated by noncompartmental analysis, and tests of bioequivalence were based on 90% confidence intervals (CIs) for ratios or differences. The geometric mean ratio (GMR) (90% CI) of the areas under the concentration-time curve from 0 to 24 h (AUC(0-24)s) of EFV (n = 11) with and without VPA was 1.00 (0.85, 1.17). The GMR (90% CI) of the AUC(0-8)s of LPV (n = 8) with and without VPA was 1.38 (0.98, 1.94). The differences (90% CI) in mean C(0) and 8-h VPA concentrations versus the control (n = 11) were -1.0 (-9.4, 7.4) microg/ml and -2.1 (-11.1, 6.9) microg/ml for EFV (n = 10) and -5.0 (-13.2, 3.3) microg/ml and -6.7 (-17.6, 4.2) microg/ml for LPV/r (n = 11), respectively. EFV administration alone is bioequivalent to EFV and VPA coadministration. LPV concentrations tended to be higher when the drug was combined with VPA. Results of VPA comparisons fail to raise concern that coadministration with EFV or LPV/r will significantly influence trough concentrations of VPA.

Skin rash associated with nevirapine (NVP) is common and efavirenz (EFV) is often used as a substitute. We aimed to buy sustiva determine the predicting factors for unsuccessful switching from NVP to EFV. A retrospective cohort study was conducted in HIV-infected patients who developed rash after taking NVP. There were 109 patients with a mean standard deviation (SD) age of 36.6 (7.4) years and 45% were males. Median (interquartile range) CD4 cell count and HIV RNA at the time of NVP initiation were 163 (50-273) cells/mm(3) and 4.6 (1.7-5.4) log copies/mL, respectively. Twenty (18.3%) patients subsequently developed EFV-associated rash. By logistic regression, history of drug allergy apart from NVP (odds ratio [OR] 11.42) and CD4 cell count <100 cells/mm(3) (OR 6.14) were significant predicting factors for EFV-associated rash. Two predicting factors for unsuccessful switching from NVP to EFV were found. Patients who have these factors need to have a close follow-up if EFV is substituted.

DTG was compared to efavirenz (EFV), raltegravir (RAL), darunavir/ritonavir, rilpivirine (RPV), elvitegravir/cobicistat, atazanavir/ritonavir and lopinavir/ritonavir in TN patients and to RAL in TE patients. The initial cohort, the main efficacy data and safety data were derived from phase III clinical trials. Treatment algorithms were based on expert opinion. Costs normalized to the year 2013 included antiretroviral treatment cost, testing, adverse event, HIV and cardiovascular disease care and were derived from the literature.

OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to investigate the pharmacokinetic effects of coadministration of saquinavir/ritonavir with efavirenz at steady state. METHODS: Healthy volunteers in this open-label, two-arm, one-sequence, two-period crossover study (planned enrollment of 40 participants) were randomized to one of two treatment arms: those in Arm 1 were scheduled to receive saquinavir/ritonavir 1,000/100 mg orally twice daily for 29 days and efavirenz 600 mg orally once daily starting on day 15 and continuing through day 29; participants randomized to Arm 2 were to receive efavirenz once daily for 29 days and saquinavir/ritonavir 1,000/100 mg twice daily starting on day 15 through day 29. Assessments included vital signs, laboratory analyses, electrocardiography, and blood levels of total saquinavir, ritonavir, and efavirenz. Pharmacokinetic parameters included C(max) (maximum observed plasma concentration), t(max) (time to reach the maximum observed plasma concentration), (apparent elimination half-life), and AUC(0-tau) (area-under-the-plasma-concentration-time curve over one dosing interval). RESULTS: Eight participants (four in each arm) were enrolled; only two (one from each treatment arm) reached day 15 of the study and received the concurrent initial doses of saquinavir/ritonavir and efavirenz. The study was terminated prematurely after these two participants experienced nonserious adverse events. The participant in Arm 1 experienced mild abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, sleep disorder, and headache and the participant in Arm 2 experienced moderate-intensity abdominal pain and mild vomiting with leukocytosis accompanied by elevated pancreatic and hepatic enzymes (aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase values of 2-fold and 3.5-fold the upper limit of normal, respectively). Both participants recovered completely following treatment discontinuation. Only limited Cymbalta 75 Mg pharmacokinetic data were generated on these two participants. CONCLUSIONS: The early termination of this study precluded drawing any definitive conclusions regarding the pharmacokinetics at steady state of coadministered saquinavir/ritonavir and efavirenz.

Dupont Pharma officials have confirmed that Sustiva (efavirenz) has been shown to cause false positives on THC tests. THC tests are urine tests used to screen for marijuana use. They are frequently used on individuals in critical occupations, people in drug treatment, or prisoners in work release programs. The company does not understand the mechanism causing the false readings, but determined that a follow-up test would yield a negative result. Dupont Pharma is planning to notify physicians and clinical investigators about the problem and may issue cards to Amaryl Overdose Symptoms patients using this drug to avoid embarrassment or potential punishment as a result of inaccurate urine tests.

Depression is a complex disorder with heterogeneous clinical anomalies whose neurobiological understanding still remains unclear. Medications have been implicated as potential causes of depression but for many of them Celexa Prices , data are controversial. The present study aims to investigate association bet ween drugs and reports of depression. We used the case/non case method in the French pharmacovigilance database (FPVD) to identify drugs associated with depression. Cases were reports of depression in the FPVD between January 2007 and December 2011. Non cases were all other reports during the same period. Data were expressed as reporting odds ratio (ROR) with their 95% confidence interval. Of the 114,692 reports recorded in the FPVD during the studied period, we identified 474 cases of depression. For the majority of the patients, they were considered as "non serious" (56%) and evolution was favorable (64%). Significant RORs were found for antiepileptics (topiramate, levetiracetam), anti-infective and especially anti-retroviral drugs (efavirenz, emtricitabine, tenofovir, etravirine, raltegravir), interferons and other agents including isotretinoin, methylphenidate, sodium oxybate, varenicline, montelukast, flunarizine, adalimumab, anastrozole. Taking into account the limits of the methodology, the present study described associations with mainly expected drugs belonging to various therapeutic classes but it also found a signal with some anti-retrovirals. On the contrary, we did not find some assumed associations like cardiovascular medications, antimalarial. For most of the drugs, one or more mechanisms were found to explain these depressogenic effects on the basis of animal and human literature. Even if such associations need to be confirmed by further prospective studies, cautions are necessary for many drugs to early detect depressive symptoms.

Efavirenz exhibits multiple interactions with drug-metabolizing enzymes and transporters, and for this reason efavirenz-based HIV therapy is associated with altered pharmacokinetics of coadministered drugs. Probably by the same mechanism, efavirenz-based HIV therapy affects the disposition of endogenous compounds, but this effect is Effexor 75mg Generic difficult to directly link with efavirenz because it is used in combination with other drugs.
