Question

I’m using ARVs, can I drink alcohol?

I was recently diagnosed with HIV. I am learning to cope with this on a day-to-day basis. However I used to drink alcohol and I found that this made things harder. Do you know if I can drink non alcoholic beer one a day?

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch.

Though being diagnosed can be difficult, it’s good to hear that you’re taking each day as it comes. In time it definitely gets easier.

With regards to drinking, it’s OK to drink both alcohol and non-alcoholic beer, this won’t have any impact on your HIV.
