Charlie Sheen admits he stopped taking HIV pills to try ‘experimental’ medication

Charlie Sheen has revealed he stopped taking his HIV meds

Charlie Sheen has revealed he stopped taking HIV medication after seeking out ‘experimental’ medication in Mexico.

‘I’ve been off my meds for about a week now,’ he said on The Dr. Oz Show. ‘Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t faze me at all.’

During the interview, he said he got some ‘results’ he was disappointed about. He had been non-detectable for many years, but on the day he filmed the interview he saw the ‘numbers are back up’.

The actor said he is seeking treatment from a physician named Dr Sam Chachoua, who is not licensed to practice medicine in the US.

However, Sheen’s manager Mark Burg has said he is now back on his proper medication.

‘Charlie is back on his meds. He tried a cure from a doctor in Mexico but the minute the numbers went up, he started taking his medicine,’ Burg told People.
