Use of Bedaquiline and Anti Retroviral Therapy

By Micheal Mazzi | 25 Sep, 2018

Dear Colleagues, i salute all.
I would kindly want to understand. If i have a patient who is stable on Tenofovir/Lamivudine/Efavirenz , and is not eligible for Nevirapine but i would like to start the patient on a DR-TB regimen with Bedaquiline, what do i substitute for the Efavirenz? The patient is an adult
Thank you

The drug to replace efavirenz will depend pretty much on what is available
to build a regimen in the national treatment program for PLHIV.
Otherwise, options include replacing efavirenz with etravirine or use PI
base as last option
