Just started HIV MEds Sustiva/Combivir. Have used Viagra or Cialis for ED in the past. Can I continue to use these ED drugs while on these HIV MEDS?

Response from Dr. Henry

Many patients have taken Sustiva with Viagra. Generally there has not been a problem. Sustiva can decrease or increase Viagra levels so the response has to be closely observed and perhaps the dose altered. Would provide feedback to your HIV specialist so he/she can offer advice depending on your own experience. KH
