† NNRTIs should be considered as an alternative only when 1) the HCW or sexual
assault survivor cannot tolerate either tenofovir, nelfinavir, or lopinavir/ritonavir
(co-formulated as Kaletra), or 2) when exposure has occured from a patient/
source with known drug-resistant HIV that is sensitive to the NNRTIs.
Nevirapine should be considered an alternative only when NRTIs or PIs are not an
option. Consultation with an HIV Specialist is strongly recommended. If the individual
decides to take nevirapine after a review of the risks and benefits, serum liverenzymes should be carefully monitored at baseline, weeks 2 and 4, or at any time
