No risk, no worries: You can only get HIV by intimate contact (unprotected sex, sharing drug injection equipment, etc) with someone already infected with it. Masturbation cannot give you HIV or any other infection. Masturbation is perfectly healthy, except in rare cases when it is so frequent or compulsive it is interfering with your life and happiness.

It depends on the drug. You didn't specify if this is a "legal" or prescribed drug. What exactly do you mean or to which drug are you referring ?

A member asked:

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.
