Ritalin and Viracept

Jul 28, 2004

As an an adult,with a history of ADHD , I still find ritalin helpful, at certain times. Are there any studies to suggest that ritaln interacts with the Viraept,Zerit, Epivir regimin?

Response from Dr. Horwath

I know of no studies to suggest an interaction Ritalin and antiretroviral drugs. In fact, there are several published clinical studies that showed that Ritalin could be used safely in people with HIV. These studies preceded the wide use of antiretroviral cocktails.
