What will happen if my baby missed her nevirapine syrup dose by 2 days ? What will happen if the time of the nevirapine syrup administration was changed ? Will that have any effect on the effect of the medication?

Continuous rx best: It is always best to have continuous treatment as we are looking at suppression of the virus. brief periods of missing meds suboptimal, but resumption asap, most important. Likely clinically insignificant. no need to worry it will not help in any way.

Can you tell me how is nevirapine used to treat HIV infections?

Can you tell me how is nevirapine used to treat HIV infections?

Nevirapine - HIV med: This medicine is what's called a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor or 'non-nuke'. There are now several different classes of HIV medication, which is great for patients.

HELP PLEASE...I found out that I'm HIV+ after birth. They gave the baby Nevirapine. Is she protected from the virus? she won't be infected?

HELP PLEASE...I found out that I'm HIV+ after birth. They gave the baby Nevirapine. Is she protected from the virus? she won't be infected?

Am I dying?

Am I dying?

We all are: A 3-word question with no details... well, life is short on Earth, regardless of whether a person lives 3 days, 3000 days, or 30,000 days. It is not length of one's life that matters, but the quality of the life lived. The goal is not to live a long life, but to live a good life. Even if a person makes it all the way to age 82, that's only 30,000 days. ...Read more
