Eight patients who were infected with human immunodeficiency virus, and who had each sustained an adverse drug reaction while following a regimen including nevirapine, were switched to a regimen including efavirenz. None of the patients experienced adverse events identical to that which necessitated discontinuation of nevirapine. This study demonstrates that adverse events related to nevirapine are not a class-specific effect.
