    We have an AIDS board here and that would probably be the best board to post on. Good luck.

    Don't know if it has anything to do with HIV, but it seems that he would be very sick from the compilcations that it would cause. Toxic too.
    Plenty of WATER, FIBER(Daily whole wheat bread works well for me) and a little DAILY WALKING will normally prevent constipation.

    AT THIS POINT THO ...
    You NEED to get your friend to the ER or admitted to hospital to start treatment immediately!

    After he's treated (a BIG job at his point) and out of danger they can work on figuring out what hasn't been working right and why.

    Let us know what happens and what you find out.
