Is it safe to mix drugs?

Can I use chems whilst on HIV meds?

It is safest to use only one substance at a time, however people sometimes combine drugs particularly club drugs or chemsex drugs, some drugs may enhance the effects of others however some drugs are very dangerous, even lethal when used together.

 

Make sure you know which drugs to avoid combining and don’t forget you may buy something without knowing what it is mixed with so always go low and slow with doses.

See the chart below to understand the interactions between some of the  most commonly used drugs.
