Hello Doctor Young, I wanted to thank you for all your advises, I have another question. I am having trouble to sleep (sometimes) specially when I am stress at work.Is it ok to take a unisom pill with my regimen? (prezista,truvada,norvir) Please advise!
Well I forgot to mention and I think I told you before that my virul load is always undetectable and CD4 750+
Response from Dr. Young
Great to hear back from you.
Unisom contains the medication diphenhydramine (otherwise known as Benadryl, or the "PM" in Tylenol PM or Advil PM). This is a quite effective sleep aid, with no real issues with dependency.
There aren't any significant drug-drug interactions between diphenhydramine and your HIV medications.
Stay well, BY
