Sleeping tablets and meds

Jul 8, 2001

I read somewhere that they do affect absorption of protease inhibitors, what about transcriptase inh? Could they aso have a direct effect on inmune system? Thank you

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Sleeping pills, the protease inhibitors and the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors can have drug interactions. Be sure to review these possibilities with your health care provider. The nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors generally do not have interactions with sleeping pills.
