Just checking in...
Jun 27, 2003

Hello Dr. Young:

I have a friend who is just about to start a regime that one of your Q&As addresses:

See below:

Just checking in: Viread, Sustiva, and Videx (250MG)(Jun 26, 2003)

I read the above Q&A and you answered most of my questions.

However, his Dr. is saying that with the above combination my friend can drink absolutely NO LIQUOR.

"Can you tell me if very light to moderate drinking with the above combination is O.K.?"

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

It's my opinion that life in moderation (including alcohol) is ok with HIV medications. BY
