About 20 hours ago I took about 40 units of Crystal (methamphetamine with lithium) via syringe wich was new. As a first time user i had symptons of overdose wich included. I'm currently taking Atripla, isionazid and Strattera 10mg. Since I still feel that the methamphetamine is in my system is there a possibility that additional side effects will appear if i take my medications today?
Response from Dr. Henry
There could be enhanced brain/central nervous system side effects from use of crystal meth use and efavirenz (in Atripla) and possibly Strattera--not well studied. I am not aware of a specific drug interaction between those drugs so I would generally recommend still taking the Atripla and other medications as prescribed. You shuld discuss your crystal meth use with your HIV provider. KH
