Smoking Pot affecting HIV meds
Dec 2, 2007

Hi, Dr. Bob

My lover is HIV+ for over 10 years now (I'm negative). He's undetectible and his t cell count is 278. He smokes marajuana several times a day. I would definitely say he's a major stoner. I'm curious to know what kind of effect that can have on the meds that he is taking.

Thanks!

Lorenzo

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Lorenzo,

Wow, is your lover Willie Nelson? Bill Maher? No matter. There is no significant drug-drug (or drug-"herb") interaction between Mary Jane and HIV meds. That said, extremely heavy use can pose other problems, such as irritation to sinuses and respiratory tract, not to mention insatiable munchies and a strong urge to watch "I Love Lucy" reruns.

Dr. Bob
