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.

Our analysis demonstrates that XMRV exhibits a distinct pattern of nucleoside analog susceptibility that correlates with the structure of the pseudosugar moiety and that XMRV is sensitive to a broader range of antiretroviral drugs than has previously been reported. We suggest that the divergent drug sensitivity profiles of XMRV and HIV-1 are partially explained by specific amino acid differences in their respective protease, RT and integrase sequences. Our data provide a basis for choosing specific antiretroviral drugs for clinical studies in XMRV-infected patients.

A total of 693 patients (561 male, 132 female) at 24 sites were enrolled. The median age at first presentation for HIV care was 36. The proportion of patients presenting with advanced HIV disease (CD4 count<200/mm(3) or presenting with an AIDS-defining event) was 30.6%; and 52.4% of patients were late presenters (CD4 count<350/mm(3) or presenting with an AIDS-defining event). Median CD4 counts at presentation and before treatment were 344 (IQR: 175-540) and 295 (IQR: 150-430), respectively. Pretreatment CD4 count was >500 copies/mL in 18.5% of patients. Of 531 patients receiving ART, initial combinations consist of tenofovir/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) plus efavirenz (EFV) in 48.2% and TDF/FTC plus lopinavir/ritonavir (LPV/r) in 37.5% and other combinations in 14.3% of the patients. Pre-treatment HIV-RNA was over 100.000 copies/mL in 52.3% of patients. At Weeks 24 and 48, HIV-RNA were<50 copies/mL in 63,4% of 385 patients and 82% of 311 patients reported to be still on ART and had a viral load measurement, respectively. Median pretreatment CD4 count was lower for TDF/FTC+LPV/r recipients than TDF/FTC+EFV recipients (250 vs 316) (p<0.05). The median increase from baseline CD4 cell count was 230 in TDF/FTC+LPV/r group, 193 in TDF/FTC+EFV group and 216 among all treated patients. Of 531 patients receiving ART, 11 had died and 19 were lost to follow-up.

The total number of prescriptions for antiretrovirals increased from 168,914 in 1991 to 2.0 million in 1998, and 3.0 million in 2005, a 16.7-fold increase over 15 years. The number of prescriptions for NRTIs reached 1.6 million in 2005. Prescriptions for PIs increased from 114 in 1995 to 932,176 in 2005, while the number of prescriptions for NNRTIs increased from 1,339 in 1996 to 401,272 in 2005. The total payment for antiretroviral drugs in the U.S. Medicaid Program increased from US$ 30.6 million in 1991 to US$ 1.6 billion in 2005, a 49.8-fold increase. In 2005, NRTIs as a class had the highest payment market share. These drugs alone accounted for US$ 787.9 million in Medicaid spending (50.8 percent of spending on antiretrovirals). Payment per prescription for each drug, with the exception of Agenerase, increased, at least somewhat, over time. The relatively expensive drugs in 2005 included Trizivir ($1040) and Combivir ($640), as well as Reyataz ($750), Lexiva ($700), Sustiva ($420), Viramune ($370), and Fuzeon ($1914).

We report the results of a pilot open-label trial of a tenofovir (TDF)/emtricitabine (FTC)/efavirenz (EFV) combination conducted in Dakar, Senegal. Forty HIV-1-infected patients, naive of antiretroviral treatment and without active opportunistic disease, were included and followed through 96 weeks. At weeks 48 and 96, respectively, 82.5% and 85% of patients had HIV-1 RNA <400 copies/mL (72.5% and 77.5% with HIV-1 RNA <50 copies/mL). Between baseline and week 96, the mean (SD) CD4 count increased from 126 (102) to 338 (155) cells/mm(3). The mean (SD) creatinine clearance decreased from 92 (36) to 73 (19) mL/min (P = .001). Treatment adherence was at least 94% at all scheduled visits. The efficacy and tolerability of a TDF/FTC/EFV combination were high and similar to those observed in Northern countries. This drug combination can be recommended in limited-resource countries, as did the World Health Organization (WHO) and should be made readily available as a fixed-dose combination.

The efficacy of dolutegravir (DTG) in treatment-naïve patients has been analyzed in the SPRING 1 and 2, SINGLE and FLAMINGO trials, which compared dolutegravir with the agents currently recommended as the drugs of choice in clinical practice guidelines in treatment-naïve patients: efavirenz, raltegravir and darunavir/ritonavir. These trials confirmed the superiority (SINGLE and FLAMINGO) or the non-inferiority (SPRING-2) of dolutegravir. More than 2,000 patients were included in these 4 studies, lending value to their results and reinforcing the view of dolutegravir as the drug of choice in treatment-naïve patients, accompanied either by abacavir/lamivudine (Kivexa(®)) or tenofovir/emtricitabine (Truvada®).

A selective and a highly sensitive method for the determination of the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), efavirenz, in human plasma has been developed and fully validated based on high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Sample preparation involved protein precipitation followed by one to one dilution with water. The analyte, efavirenz was separated by high performance liquid chromatography and detected with tandem mass spectrometry in negative ionization mode with multiple reaction monitoring. Efavirenz and ¹³C₆-efavirenz (Internal Standard), respectively, were detected via the following MRM transitions: m/z 314.20243.90 and m/z 320.20249.90. A gradient program was used to elute the analytes using 0.1% formic acid in water and 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile as mobile phase solvents, at a flow-rate of 0.3 mL/min. The total run time was 5 min and the retention times for the internal standard (¹³C₆-efavirenz) and efavirenz was approximately 2.6 min. The calibration curves showed linearity (coefficient of regression, r>0.99) over the concentration range of 1.0-2,500 ng/mL. The intraday precision based on the standard deviation of replicates of lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) was 9.24% and for quality control (QC) samples ranged from 2.41% to 6.42% and with accuracy from 112% and 100-111% for LLOQ and QC samples. The inter day precision was 12.3% and 3.03-9.18% for LLOQ and quality controls samples, and the accuracy was 108% and 95.2-108% for LLOQ and QC samples. Stability studies showed that efavirenz was stable during the expected conditions for sample preparation and storage. The lower limit of quantification for efavirenz was 1 ng/mL. The analytical method showed excellent sensitivity, precision, and accuracy. This method is robust and is being successfully applied for therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacokinetic studies in HIV-infected patients.

Comprehensive information on the effects of cytochrome P450 2B6 (CYP2B6) polymorphisms, clinical factors, and drug-drug interactions on efavirenz concentrations in HIV/tuberculosis-coinfected (HIV/TB) patients is unavailable. A total of 139 HIV/TB adults, 101 of whom received a rifampin-containing anti-TB regimen, were prospectively enrolled to receive efavirenz (600 mg)/tenofovir/lamivudine. Nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within CYP2B6 were genotyped. Plasma efavirenz concentrations were measured at 12 weeks. The median (interquartile range [IQR]) efavirenz concentration was 2.3 (1.4 to 3.9) mg/liter. The SNPs (frequencies of heterozygous and homozygous mutants) were 64C>T (10% and 1%), 499C>G (0% and 0%), 516G>T (47% and 8%), 785A>G (54% and 10%), 1375A>G (0% and 0%), 1459C>T (3% and 0%), 3003C>T (44% and 27%), 18492T>C (39% and 6%), and 21563C>T (57% and 5%). The four most frequent CYP2B6 haplotypes identified were *1/*6 (41%), *1/*1 (35%), *1/*2 (7%), and *6/*6 (7%). The heterozygous/homozygous mutation associated with low efavirenz concentrations was 18492T>C (P < 0.001), and those associated with high efavirenz concentrations were 516G>T, 785A>G, and 21563C>T (all P < 0.05). Haplotype *1/*1 was associated with low efavirenz concentrations, and *6/*6, *1/*6, and *5/6 were associated with high efavirenz concentrations. As shown by multivariate analysis, low efavirenz concentrations were significantly associated with the *1/*1 haplotype (beta = -1.084, P = 0.027) and high body weight (beta = -0.076, P = 0.002). In conclusion, pharmacogenetic markers of CYP2B6 have the greatest impact with respect to inducing low plasma efavirenz concentrations in HIV/TB Thai patients.

There is no published data looking at tolerance of efavirenz (EFV) in patients who abuse cocaine or alcohol (EtOH). The objective of this study was to determine whether individuals with a current or past history of cocaine or EtOH abuse are more likely to experience EFV-induced central nervous system (CNS) side effects that warrant discontinuation of EFV compared with those who do not abuse substances.

As a relationship between nelfinavir antiretroviral efficacy and plasma concentrations has been previously established, nelfinavir pharmacokinetics was investigated in order to optimize the individual treatment schedule in a pediatric population. A population pharmacokinetic model was developed to describe the concentration-time course of nelfinavir and its active metabolite M8. Individual characteristics were used to explain the large interindividual variability in children. Data from therapeutic drug monitoring in 182 children treated with nelfinavir were analyzed with NONMEM. Then Food and Drug Administration (FDA) current recommendations were evaluated estimating the percentage of children who reached the target minimum plasma concentration (0.8 mg/liter) by using Bayesian estimates. Nelfinavir pharmacokinetics was described by a one- compartment model with linear absorption and elimination. Pharmacokinetic estimates and the corresponding intersubject variabilities for the model were as follows: nelfinavir total clearance, 0.93 liters/h/kg (39%); volume of distribution, 6.9 liters/kg (109%); absorption rate, 0.5 h(-1); formation clearance fraction to hydroxy-tert-butylamide (M8), 0.025; M8 elimination rate, 1.88 h(-1) (49%). Apparent nelfinavir total clearance and volume of distribution decreased as a function of age. M8 elimination rate was increased by concomitant administration of nevirapine or efavirenz. Our data confirm that the FDA recommendations for children from 2 to 13 years are optimal and that the dose recommended for children younger than 2 years is adequate for the children from 2 months to 2 years old. However, in children younger than 2 months, the proposed nelfinavir newborn dose of 40 mg/kg of body weight twice daily is inadequate and we suggest increasing the dose to 50 to 60 mg/kg administered thrice daily. This assumption should be further evaluated.

We systematically reviewed adverse events among treatment-naive HIV-positive adults and children receiving either NVP or EFV as part of first-line antiretroviral therapy. The primary outcome was drug discontinuation as a result of any adverse event; specific toxicities were evaluated as secondary outcomes. Point estimates and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated and proportions and odds ratios (ORs) pooled using fixed-effects meta-analysis.

As efavirenz is widely used in current antiretroviral therapy, these findings may concern many HIV-infected men wishing to have children. This justifies further assessment of the consequences on fertility of the exposure to efavirenz. Moreover, the possibility of common cellular impacts underlying adverse effects of efavirenz in sperm cells and neurons deserved investigation.

sustiva drug classification

Efavirenz is a lipophilic non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor used in the first-line pediatric therapeutic cocktail. Due to its high lipophilicity (logP = 5.4) and poor aqueous solubility (intrinsic water solubility = 8.3 μg/mL) efavirenz has low bioavailability. A 30 mg/mL solution in a medium-chain triglyceride vehicle is the only pediatric formulation available with an oral bioavailability 20% lower than the solid form. The current work was aimed at formulating and characterizing liquid crystal nanoparticles for oral delivery of efavirenz to improve oral bioavailability, provide sustained release, minimize side effects and drug resistance. Formulation of cubosomes was done by two methods; sonication and spray drying. Sonication gave highest entrapment efficiency and least particle size. Further, monoolein was substituted with phytantriol as monoolein gets degraded in the presence of lipase when administered orally with consequent loss of liquid crystalline structure. It was confirmed that there was no difference in particle size, entrapment efficiency and nature of product formed by using monoolein or phytantriol. The best formulation was found to be F9, having particle size 104.19 ± 0.21 nm and entrapment efficiency 91.40 ± 0.10%. In vitro release at the end of 12h was found to be 56.45% and zeta potential to be -23.14 mV which stabilized the cubic phase dispersions. It was further characterized for TEM, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), DSC and stability studies. SAXS revealed Pn3m space group, indicating a diamond cubic phase which was further confirmed by TEM. Pharmacokinetics of EFV was studied in male Wistar rats. EFV-loaded cubosome dispersions exhibited 1.93 and 1.62-fold increase in peak plasma concentration (Cmax) and 1.48 and 1.42-fold increase in AUC in comparison to that of a suspension prepared with the contents of EFV capsules suspended in 1.5% carboxymethylcellulose PBS solution (pH 5.0), and an EFV solution in medium-chain triglyceride respectively. Thus, stable cubosomes of efavirenz with increased bioavailability providing sustained release effect could be prepared successfully using phytantriol and poloxamer 407.

We studied the evolution of nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) resistance mutations among 29 human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected patients who experienced virologic failure when receiving an NNRTI-containing regimen (nevirapine, delavirdine, or efavirenz) and subsequently switched to antiretroviral therapy without NNRTIs. Genotypic resistance buy sustiva was determined from plasma samples collected at the time of NNRTI withdrawal (baseline) and during follow-up. At baseline, 83% of patients had more than two thymidine analog resistance mutations (TAMs), and all had NNRTI resistance mutations. Mutations at codons 103, 181, and 190 were found in 62, 62, and 34% of the patients, respectively. Follow-up samples were available after a median time of 6 months in all patients and at 12 months in 22 patients. The mean number of resistance mutations to NNRTIs was significantly lower at months 6 (1.34 +/- 1.04) and 12 (1.18 +/- 1.05) than at month 0 (2.03 +/- 1.02) (P < 0.009). The percentages of patients with at least one NNRTI resistance mutation were 100, 76, and 73% at baseline, month 6, and month 12, respectively (P < 0.0044). Overall, 70% of the patients had a mutation at codon 103 or 181 at month 12. The mean number of TAMs did not vary significantly during follow-up. Our data show that, in the context of maintained antiretroviral therapy, NNRTI resistance mutations persist in two-thirds of the patients in spite of NNRTI withdrawal. These results argue for the low impact of NNRTI resistance mutations on viral fitness and suggest that resistance mutations to different classes of drugs are associated on the same genome, at least in some of the resistant strains.

Ritonavir-boosted lopinavir (LPV/r) has been recommended as an alternative regimen for HIV-naive patients who cannot tolerate nevirapine (NVP) and/or efavirenz (EFV). Although combinations of ritonavir and lopinavir have shown higher plasma concentration level of LPV in clinical settings, dosage adjustment is still required to maintain an adequate therapeutic efficacy and reduce side effects. A compartmental pharmacokinetic (PK) model of LPV/r was developed, including a mechanistic description of competitive inhibition. Systematic simulations were performed and predicted plasma drug concentration levels were compared with those from the literature. In particular, the simulated and experimental area under the curve (AUC) based on oral dosing were 76.10 μMol/L, and 76.25 μMol/L, respectively Results from the mathematical model support the hypothesis that the mechanism of LPV/r interaction is due to the competitive inhibition of CYP3A4 in the liver by ritonavir, resulting in an increasing LPV buy sustiva plasma concentration levels. The simulated plasma concentration-time courses were consistent with those from the literature with the goodness of fit (R(2)) of 0.9025 (0.8269-0.9862 95%CI).

1269 patients started LPV/r plus TDF/FTC, and 890 could be matched to 890 patients receiving another third drug. Baseline characteristics were well balanced between these two groups. LPV/r was associated with a higher risk of third drug stop (hazard ratio (HR): 1.69; 95% confidence interval (CI), 1.42-2.00) and with less rapid viral suppression (HR: 0.83; 95% CI, 0.72-0.95). There was no difference in the time required for a CD4 buy sustiva cell increment of at least 100/mm(3), or to the occurrence of an AIDS-defining event.

The staging of HIV disease, performed using the definitions of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was CDC stage B or C for all 40 recruited patients. At baseline, the mean CD4+ cell count was 133 +/- 92/mcL (+/- standard deviation [SD]; range 1-346), and 23% of patients had CD4+ cell counts below 50/mcL. The mean baseline plasma HIV RNA level was 5.5 +/- 0.4 log10 copies/mL (+/- SD; range 4.6-5.9). The proportion of patients with plasma HIV-1 RNA below 500 copies/mL fell during the study from 73% (95% CI [56; 85]) at M6 to 56% (95% CI [41; 73]) at M12 and 43% (95% CI [27; 59]) at M18. Plasma HIV-RNA was below 50 copies/mL in 50% of study subjects (95% CI [31; 66]) at M6, 43% (95% CI [27; 59]) at M12, and 33% (95% CI [19; 49]) at M18.The mean increase in the CD4+ cell count was 105 +/- 125/mcL (n = 38) at M3 and 186 +/- 122/mcL (n = 21) at M18. Eight patients died, including 6 because of infectious complications. The last viral load (VL) value before death was < 500 copies/mL in all these patients except 1 nonadherent patient. Fifteen patients (37.5%) had peripheral neuropathy that was severe enough in 5 patients (12.5%) to require ddI and d4T buy sustiva discontinuation.

We enrolled 232 patients from 11 March 2010 to 17 March 2011. One hundred ninety-six were included in the month 1 analyses. Of the 196 included in the month 1 analyses, 157 (80%) completed the 6-month follow-up. Median efavirenz checklist score was 6 (interquartile range (IQR): 2-15) at month 1 and 1 (IQR: 0-5) at month 6. The median change in efavirenz checklist score from month 1-6 was -4 (IQR: -11 to -1), representing an improvement. Depressive symptoms, low CD4 count buy sustiva and less alcohol use were associated with improvement in adverse experiences over time. Low weight was associated with increased extent of adverse experiences at month 1 and 6. There was no confounding or effect modification.

Short-term efavirenz buy sustiva and amprenavir administration significantly increased cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose levels. Addition of a second protease inhibitor further increased triglycerides, total and LDL-cholesterol levels. Higher amprenavir levels predicted larger increases in triglycerides, total, and LDL-cholesterol. Two weeks after all study drugs were stopped, total, LDL-, and HDL-cholesterol remained elevated above baseline.

Genotypic and phenotypic characterization was performed of HIV-1 isolates from treatment-naive HIV-1-infected patients experiencing virologic failure (VF) during treatment with the nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTIs) rilpivirine or efavirenz in the pooled phase 3 studies ECHO and THRIVE. Among 686 patients receiving rilpivirine, 72 (10%) experienced VF versus 39 of 682 (6%) receiving efavirenz. In patients with low baseline viral load (VL) ≤100,000 copies per milliliter, the proportions of rilpivirine VFs (19 of 368) and efavirenz VFs (16 of 330) were the same (5%). In patients with high baseline VL >100,000 copies per milliliter, the proportion of VFs was higher with rilpivirine (53 of 318; 17%) than efavirenz (23 of 352; 7%). The rate of rilpivirine VF was comparable between HIV-1 subtype B-infected (11%) and nonsubtype B-infected (8%) patients. The absolute number of VFs with treatment-emergent NNRTI resistance-associated mutations (RAMs) was higher for rilpivirine (most commonly E138K or K101E) than efavirenz (most commonly K103N), but relative proportions were similar [63% (39 of 62) vs. 54% (15 of 28), respectively]. More rilpivirine VFs had treatment-emergent nucleoside/nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor RAMs than efavirenz VFs [68% (42 of 62) versus 32% (9 of 28), respectively], most commonly M184I and M184V. The proportion of rilpivirine VFs with RAMs in patients with low baseline VL was lower than in those with high baseline VL [38% (6 of 16) versus 72% (33 of 46) for NNRTI RAMs and 44% (7 of 16) versus 76% (35 of 46) for nucleoside/ Duricef Suspension Dosing nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor RAMs, respectively]. In summary, VF and treatment-emergent reverse transcriptase RAMs were similar at low baseline VL but more frequent at high baseline VL in rilpivirine-treated than in efavirenz-treated patients. The frequent emergence of E138K, especially in combination with M184I, in rilpivirine VFs is a unique finding of these trials.
