  • Perceived effectiveness for High Cholesterol: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was taking this because my prior medications (Sustiva and later the Sustiva in Atripla) raised my cholesterol. The new medication is not supposed to have that effect on my lipid profile. I have stopped because statin drugs cause internal inflammation.
Cost: < $25 monthly
