Sorry to hear you have itching.  I have not had any problems wioth Viramune.  Do talk to your doctor, i hope you feel better.  Why did you switch from reyetaz if I may ask?

Thanks bradmeistr for your concern,
  I started my treatment with
*Sustiva= this drug was not puting me in the right mental condition so I was changed to
*Novir and Combivir= which was okay but my eyes colour was geting yellowish faster I complained and my Doc. Placed me on
*Reyataz for 2 weeks trial = severe stomach disorder was noted which resulted to my swiching to
*Viramune and combivir.= itching around the bending part of my right knee and (some rashes but not much) I am having a Control appointment in  7 days time, I was wondering if my Liver is not active enough to tolerate the drug.
I  do not know how long this itching will last or if it is a danger sign.
Just confused.
My cd4 370 and VL.=undetected.

Itching could be a sign of sensitivity to the viramune or the AZT or 3TC.  Discuss with your doc and see if trying a generic Benadryl tablet will relieve it.
