Please be aware that you should take nevirapine 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 nevirapine before they complete the sale.

Nevirapine is a generic medicine name and there are several brands available for it. Some of the brands for nevirapine might be better known than nevirapine itself. If the pharmacy that's willing to deliver medicines to your home doesn't have nevirapine in stock, you can ask for one of the branded alternatives for nevirapine.
