Nevirapine XR Side Effects
Common Side EffectsNevirapine XR has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking nevirapine XR were documented and then compared to those that occurred in another group of people taking nevirapine, a short-acting version of the drug. As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared between the two groups.
In these studies, the most commonly reported nevirapine XR side effects included:
- A rash -- in up to 3 percent of people
- Liver problems, such as hepatitis, jaundice, or liver failure -- up to 2 percent.
