How soon after taking nevirapine will my symptoms improve?

Nevirapine interferes with the process that the HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) undergoes in order to replicate. After beginning nevirapine therapy, the suppression of the HIV virus allows the body's immune system to recover. However, you may not notice specific symptom changes as this process occurs.
