I am very concerned about what I did for the last 10 days
I did crystal meth and want to know if there will be some problems with my medications now
I take Truvada and isentress
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

There is no significant drug interaction between meth and these drugs so nothing much to worry about. Stay relaxed.

What hiv meds interfere with crystal meth?
I read on the internet that it can happen...
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Your answer was very vague with no explanation
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Norvir and tybost are the drugs involved in harmful interactions with meth but truvada and isentress are safe.
