I have been HIV positive for four years. I have been using DHEA thinking it will help for wasting. But have not seen any results. Do you have any experience with this drug???? I live in San Francisco and it's very popular here.

Response from Dr. Fisher

I'm not real impressed with DHEA. Have you checked your testosterone levels? your body composition? Have you had a consult with a dietician? You have lots of resources in SF so get going. Alvan Fisher, M.D.

megesterol acetate & oxandrolone
Ketotifen for wasting
