RED WINE with Truvada / Viramune
      09/02/07 05:54 AM

I am on about day 45 of this regimen, my first. Reached undetectable under 30 days, will see doc again on September 7, 6 days away. I have to do labs prior to going, and I gave in to temptation and had two glasses of wine the past three days.

The first night, it was two hours after taking the viramune / truvada. The next day, it was in the afternoon. No problems other than a little stomach upset. However today, another afternoon drinking session that kind of overlapped with my 6pm dosing time for the Truvada / Viramune. I ate shortly afterwards, but, felt weird for the rest of the night and even as I write this at almost 11pm.

I think I will be skipping alcohol for a while, but my biggest concern: Have I increased my risk of resistence or the the efficacy of the medicine.

I didn't miss anything while I wasn't drinking at all in the beginning 44 or so days of this new HAART adventure. Back to NO BOOZE for me. A little 420 maybe, but only a little as needed. Appetite a huge problem sometimes for me, and this nausea from the wine has been fixed or overpowered by the thc.

I wonder how some who do hard drugs such as meth do on these meds. Must be very harsh on teh body.... I won't touch the crap ever again .. if it were not for meth, I would not be HIV + because I would have never engaged in the risky behavior that I did.
