Its structure closely resembles the natural structure of viral DNA, that helps it to incorporate itself into the viral DNA. By doing so, it blocks the activity of an important viral enzyme reverse transcriptase which is involved in the replication of viral DNA, a process essential for survival of the virus.Common side effects Decreased white blood cell count (neutrophils), Peripheral neuropathy, Abdominal pain, Skin rash, Allergic reaction, Mood changes, Depression, Flatulence, Headache, Indigestion, Liver enzyme increased, Loss of appetite, Muscle pain, Weakness, Nausea, Diarrhoea Efavirenz(600 Mg)Uses Efavirenz is used in combination with other medications for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.How it works
