I was wondering if you could tell me whats know about this and if it could help me with the anxiety and nausea and what if any side effects from this being combined with the drug cocktail. I am on viracept,epivir,and zerit. thank you very much michael
Response from Dr. Boyle
Some studies and patients have reported that marijuana helps with nausea and anxiety. It is not generally available, however, unless you live in certain parts of California. There are no known interactions of this drug and your antiretroviral regimen. There are many other effective treatments for nausea and anxiety, and you should discuss these with your doctor.
