I am hiv positive and I am taking the medicine

Patient

Q: I am hiv positive and I am taking the medicine triumeq, so I would like to know if I could smoke weed?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AsktheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
I will advise against it, however, if it is only once nothing should happen.
Make sure you do not overdo it, as it will cause severe gastric problems and insomnia.
It is better to avoid it as far as possible.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
