Is Moderate Weed Consumption OK if I'm on HIV Treatment? (Editor's Pick)

Question

I am below 200, around 154 in CD load. I am on treatment with Triumeq. Am I still able to smoke weed moderately?

Answer

Thanks for writing. The key word in your question is "moderately." That can indicate a very wide range of usage depending on one's own definition.

No interaction is indicated in the literature between marijuana and Triumeq, although you should keep in mind that such interactions between recreational drugs and antiretrovirals are generally not studied.

I think your biggest concern is not the interaction with Triumeq but how much marijuana you consume. Be realistic about the impact of the drug in your life. It may or may not be a problem, but it is worthy of monitoring.

Take care,

David
