Duromine and HIV+

Sep 10, 2011

Hello. I'm 22 and HIV positive and not on any ARVs. I started using Duromine 4 days ago. Will it drop my CD4 count? Today I felt a bit sick, sluggish, and tired. Is it going to have an impact on HIV progression?

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Duromine is also known as phentermine, a prescription drug used to treat weight gain. I am unaware of any studies regarding its safety or efficacy so I believe caution is advised. I will include a link to a prior post in the forums from Dr. Henry on phentermine.
