What should I avoid while taking nevirapine?

Nevirapine is not a cure for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection or AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), so you should avoid behaviors that could spread the virus to other people. Do not share razors, toothbrushes, personal items or needles that could transmit bodily fluids. Always use a polyurethane or latex condom during sexual activity. Do not drink alcohol while taking nevirapine because this medication can damage the liver. Avoid breastfeeding while on nevirapine, not only because the medication can pass through breast milk, but also because the HIV can transfer through breast milk to your baby as well.
