Response from Dr. Fawcett
Depression is serious and affects as many as 60% of HIV-positive individuals, with HIV-positive women twice as likely to become depressed as HIV-positive men. Alternative supplements, especially St. John's Wort, can interfere with HIV medications and must be discussed with your doctor. There are many other things you can do to alleviate symptoms of depression, however, including regular exercise, managing levels of stress, getting plenty of sunlight, practicing good sleeping habits, and counseling.
