Please be aware that you should take efavirenz only if a doctor has recommended or prescribed it. Some or all pharmacies who provide a home delivery service for medicines might insist on a prescription for efavirenz before they complete the sale. You can get this information while placing the order for efavirenz with the pharmacy.
Efavirenz is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for efavirenz might be better known than efavirenz itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have efavirenz in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for efavirenz.
