Charlie Sheen stops taking HIV medication
Former Two and a half Men star Charlie Sheen has said he is no longer taking his HIV medication and now has detectable traces of the virus in his blood. The 50-year-old actor admitted in a pre-taped segment for an appearance on The Dr Oz Show that he had stopped the treatment his own doctor had advised him on and was seeking alternative treatment in Mexico, under the care of Doctor Sam Chachoua, reported Female First.
“I’m been off my meds for about a week now. Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t bother me at all.”
Chachoua is working on a HIV vaccine and is so confident about his work that he injected some of Charlie’s blood into himself.
