Charlie Sheen: HIV numbers back up after experimental treatments

Charlie Sheen says he experienced a setback in his fight against HIV after trying experimental treatments.  Sheen went public in November with the news that he had HIV.

The "Two and a Half Men" star had been taking medication which had made the HIV undetectable in blood tests for several years.

"It was going well for all that time and then I started hearing about some alternative stuff," Sheen told Dr. Oz on Tuesday's episode of the Dr. Oz Show.

He went to Mexico to try an alternative teatment that involved a series of injections.  The doctor who designed the treatment said that he was so confident that Sheen was "cured" that he injected himself with the actor's blood.

Apparently the experiment did not deliver on the promise.

On Tuesday's pre-taped segment Sheen said, "I apologize.  I am a little off my game becasue right before I walked out here I got some results I wasn't... I was disappointed about."

He went on to say, "I found out the numbers were back up."

During the interview Sheen said he was going to restart the conventional treatment that was had made the HIV undetectable.
