Deca Durabolin before Therapy

Apr 10, 2004

Would you recommend Deca if you have mild symptoms of lypo and wasting before beginning drug therapy, or would you wait until after?

Response from Mr. Vergel

I do not recommend anything in this column, by the way. I see no reason why Deca Durabolin cannot be used to treat wasting (it has not been shown to treat lipodystrophy) before you start HIV medications. Deca Durabolin does not depress the immune system, contrary to what some people may think. It can increase red blood cells and CD8 cells. Talk to your doctor about this.
