arv and alcahol
Sep 5, 2012

Do arv and alcohol mix. WHen can I drink alcohol and how much.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Alcohol doesn't have any particular negative interactions with ARVs.

As long as your alcohol consumption doesn't interfere with your adherence, or you don't have chronic viral hepatitis (or other chronic liver disease), there's no specific problem having a drink with your HIV medications.

Be well, BY
