sunburn anx meds?

Jun 18, 2012

I recently got a bad sunburn due to no sunscreen by accident, can that adffect my meds? Truvada, reyataz, norvir1

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Sunburn can be a bother for sure, and sometimes medications (such as TMP/SMX -Bactrim, Cotrimoxazole) can make one more sun sensitive.

Having said that, sunburn itself has no effect on HIV medications.

Be well, BY

When do I start treatment?
Truvada and liquid diet
