Charlie Sheen Stops HIV Meds, And His Virus Is Now Detectable

Just when Charlie Sheen had convinced people he had changed into a responsible adult, he goes off his HIV medication and now has a detectable viral load. Sheen went on the Dr. Oz show and revealed that he wasn’t feeling very well, as his numbers had gone back up because he went off his medication. It seems Charlie Sheen really thinks he is invincible, and that he is exempt from the rules that others have to follow.

According to The Inquisitr, Charlie Sheen admitted that in the past, he was not the most responsible person, between drugs, alcohol, and porn stars, but he had turned over a new leaf. After being diagnosed with HIV, Sheen said he stopped using drugs and cut down on his drinking. He also said that he had not missed a day of his medication since his diagnosis, that is until he stopped taking his meds entirely and went to Mexico for alternative treatments.

Radar Online reports that Charlie Sheen just went on the Dr. Oz Show, and revealed that he had decided to head to Mexico, and change up his HIV treatment to try some alternative methods, even though his current regimen was working.

“I’m a little off my game, because right before I walked out here, I got some results that I was disappointed about,” he told Dr. Oz in a televised interview.”I’d been non-detectable,” 50-year-old Sheen said. “I found out the numbers were back up.”

Sheen said in an attempt to prove that he could beat HIV, he wanted to try unproven treatments, proving once again that responsibility isn’t his strong suit.

“A lot of people came forward with treatments and cures and claims of such,” explained Sheen, who had been experiencing negative side effects from his previously successful medications.”I’ve been off my meds about a week now,” he added in a video clip shown on the program. “I feel great. Am I risking my life? Yeah, so what?”

Sheen then promised Dr. Oz that he would go back onto his former meds.

Gawker says that Sheen found “a quack” in Mexico that had treatments that were promising. Gawker revealed that Sheen behaved in his predictable cocky manner that he didn’t think he had anything to lose by stopping his proven medication. Really Charlie?

“I’ve been off of meds for about a week now, and I always feel great. And yeah, am I risking my life? Sure. So what? Um, I was born dead. So that part of it doesn’t faze me at all. I told my mom on Day 1 that the disease picked the wrong guy if it wanted to stay alive.”

According to Dr. Oz, Charlie Sheen found an alleged doctor named Samir Chachoua, who is not licensed to practice medicine of any kind. Chachoua told Dr. Oz that Sheen was the first adult ever to go HIV negative.

“Spoiler alert: This turned out to be false. Earlier in the show, Sheen reported that he was “a little off my game, because right before I walked out here, I got some results that I was disappointed about.”

And it gets stranger, much stranger, when Chachoua reveals in a taped segment that he then injected himself with some of Charlie Sheen’s blood in the presence of Sheen. Dr. Oz said this is something he never expected to hear from someone who holds themselves out to be a medical professional.

Charlie Sheen then promised Dr. Oz he would go back on his medication, saying, “what, am I an idiot?”


Do you think this is Charlie Sheen’s last dumb idea in terms of his health?
