Cocaine and HIV
Sep 22, 2011
Response from Dr. Fawcett
The complex interactions between cocaine (ingested in any form) and cocaine are still poorly understood. It has been observed that cocaine appears to help the virus spread faster and some studies suggest it can hasten the development of neurological disorders such as seizures, movement disorders and even dementia. There are no known specific interactions between HIV medications and cocaine. Help stopping cocaine can be found with Narcotics Anonymous or Cocaine Anonymous.
