Trizivir vs alcohol
May 22, 2003

Hi, I'd like to know how long time should i separate trizivir doses from drinking alcohol to avoid abacavir overdose in blood and possible sensibilization. Thanks in advance ! Antonio

Response from Dr. Henry

Small amounts of alcohol are usually OK with abacavir (1-2 beers or glasses of wine or less). Separating by several hours should be fine. KH
