Large French study examines neuropsychiatric side effects with integrase inhibitors

The largest prospective study to date on integrase inhibitors and their potential for being associated with neuropsychiatric side effects was conducted in France. With more than 21,000 HIV-positive participants, the study found that the proportion of people who stopped taking integrase inhibitors due to neuropsychiatric side effects was generally very low (between 1% and 3%). Of particular note is the fact that before starting treatment with an integrase-inhibitor-containing regimen, between 3% and 10% of participants had previously reported neuropsychiatric side effects with other classes of HIV treatment.
