Dementia Studies

HIV infection has been known to cause some problems with mental function, including problems with memory, concentration, thinking, learning, and judgment. 
These problems can progress to a condition called HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND), or its more serious form, HIV dementia.


This study is being done to see if a drug called long acting methylphenidate (ConcertaTM) is safe and effective as a treatment for problems with mental function in adults infected with HIV.
