Bi-polar +poz
« on: October 04, 2008, 05:09:00 PM »
 HI, I have a quick question. Not only do I have HIV but was diagnosed with BI-polar when I was 20. Then recently got my HIV diagnosis. I was on meds for the bi-polar but was able to get off of them, but continue weekly therapy for it. my question is, having been on meds for that condition and being bi-polar, will that have any negative side effects with HIV meds? if so how severe? thanks and prayers to all. James

hey James  :),
                   I have been on bi-polar  meds for years !

                    i find them to be more untoloratable than HIV  meds !
                   I no longer take anything for bi-polar !

                     YOUR QUESTION : Will it effect your HIV MEDS , I really  doubt it , they

                       DO NOT  hang around in your blood for very long !



                     HIV meds take presedent over ALL  other  meds .

                    never miss a dose and you WILL be fine .

                      It is NOT hard to do .

                       wishing you the best ! you got many years of good living left !
