No Gall Bladder, What meds are more appropriate
Jul 20, 2003


I would like to thank you for this service which this web site offers. It is truly a life saving location to go for people with HIV.

I have a question regarding myself. If a person has had their gall bladder removed laproscopically, are there certain meds which one should stay away from and others which are more appropriate to start on for an initial regimen?

Thanks a million for your time in answering this.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your questions and comments.

I have a number of patients who have had their gallbladders removed-- there haven't been any obvious problems that have limited treatment choices or tolerability among any of them. BY
