Nevirapine XR Side Effects

Common Side Effects

Nevirapine 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.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking nevirapine XR or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
