not sure what to do?
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
