May 16, 2004
I AM PRESENTLY ON SUSTIVA VIREAD AND EMTRIVA WAS CD4 OF 12 AND VL 37000. I AM NOT DEPRESSED BUT ALLWAYS WAS A BEER DRINKER FIND IT HARD FOR ME TO SOCIALIZE ANYMORE WITH FRIENDS CAUSE BEER IS ALLWAYS THERE AND THEY DONT KNOW ABOUT MY CONDITION. IS DRINKING A BEER OR TWO WHILE ON MEDICATION NOT GOOD AND SHOULD I JUST STAY AWAY AND CAN BEER CAUSE SOME SIDE EFFECTS.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
A beer or two (provided that they don't cause you to miss doses of medications) would be fine on your current regimen.
Good luck, stay with the adherence. BY
I want to make an informed decision
