Hiv Drugs and Crystal Meth

Mar 11, 2006


I have elevated liver enzymes, even when off hiv meds. Can monthly or bi-monthly use of crystal meth elevate AST/ALT levels? And if so, how long would the elevations last.

thanks for your site.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Perhaps, but many things including alcohol, hepatitis viruses, other meds or diseases can also cause these elevations.
