Dec 31, 2001

Hi I am currently on viramune/combivir/viread,glucophage and avandia. There has been a word going around from doctors and other authorities that a glass of red wine a day can increase health benefits inluding cholesterol. With the current meds I am on now can I have a have a glass of wine a day or even a half? thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

Yes-assuming your liver is OK and that you don't have hepatitis C-a glass of red wine should be OK with the meds you are on. KH
