When you are taking HIV meds, the potency of recreational drugs is higher. So you may end up getting higher, faster and longer than if you were not on HIV meds. If you are going to use recreational/party drugs while on meds, you may want to think about using fewer and less party drugs. Do not skip or reduce your HIV medications.
