Happy New Year!

Jan 3, 2008

I clebrated New Year's with a bang this year!!! I'm not a drnker, but had a couple too many drinks on New Year's Eve. By the end of the night I was pretty tipsy. We fished a bottle of wine and I had 2 or 3 beers.

I'm takine Kivexa/Norvir/Reyataz...When I woke up this morning I got all paranoid, thinking that the meds won't work as well now!!! Is that true?

27 Year old/Male/Canada

Response from Dr. Wohl

Wine before liquor, never sicker. Beer before wine, fine. Learned that in medical school (after hours).

Of course, if your meds were working before, they should still be. If it has been awhile since you had your viral load tested, get thee to a doctor and get bled.


Is this a good combo to start?
toxoplasmosis and starting HIV treatment
