How do drugs affect my HIV meds?

When you are taking HIV meds, other drugs have a stronger effect. So you may end up getting higher faster and longer than if you were not on HIV meds. If you are going to use other drugs while on HIV meds, you may want to think about using fewer and less party drugs. Before using any drugs it is a good idea to learn about the way they affect your HIV meds, methadone, antidepressants and/or oral contraceptives (birth control).
