|Oxandrin & HCV
May 14, 2003
Dear Dr.Dieterich, I have been HIV,HCV + for 3 years now and doing well on Viramune,Viread,Epivir,and Marinol. All my lab's are good, but I have lost alot of weight 160 to 130, so today my Doc. put me on Oxandrin 10mg BID. Do you think that would be the proper dose to start out on? Also my HCV and Liver are of concern to me with this medication. All my Liver test's were normal last check. Are there ANY drugs to put my weight, and muscle back on without causing more liver damage? ANY advice would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU, Rich
Response from Dr. Dieterich
That is the normal dose and is relatively non toxic to the liver at that dose. You should however consider treating your hepatitis C after you have gained some weight. Good luck! DTD
