marjuana and the body
Sep 19, 2001

Can marijuana have a negitive effect on treatment? AND, Does it have any benefits besides making ones appetite increase? Thanks!

Response from Dr. Fisher

I really can't answer your questions because the answers are not in yet. Marijuana probably will not have a negative effect on antiretroviral therapy, but also probably won't do anything than improving appetite. Research is finally underway to address these issues and we should have some more info soon. AF
