Shrooms (Psilocybin) and Atripla
Oct 14, 2010

Dear Dr. Young,

Thanx for all your wonderful help. I currently take Atripla, am healthy, slightly overwieght, started treatment 1.5 years ago. Started with CD4 200 VL 30,000 and am now undetectable VL and 500s CD4.

I have had 100% adherence with no problems whatsoever.

I ocassionally smoke some weed, dont really drink at all and dont use any other drugs.

I wanted to know if it would be safe to take a ONE-TIME dosage of "magic shrooms" (well cleaned before eating them).

I wanted to know if there would be any negative interactions with smoking weed 1-2 a week and one-time mushroom dosage.

Thanx a bunch!


Response from Dr. Young

Hello Joe and thanks for your words. It's always nice to know that our forum helps people.

In both cases, there shouldn't be any significant drug-drug interactions with your recreationals and your HIV medications.

Be well, BY
