How should I take nevirapine?

You should take nevirapine exactly as directed by your doctor. Typically, this will be once daily for the first 14 days to limit the onset of side effects, then twice daily with or without food. It is important to take nevirapine at the same time each day to ensure the medication is present in your system. Be careful not to miss a dose of the medication. Missing a dose can allow the HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) to develop a resistance to the medication.
