Charlie Sheen is back to taking his HIV medications after failing to find an alternative cure in Mexico. Before finding out the sad news that he needs to take his medications again, he shared that he was convinced of his alternative doctor, Dr. Samir Chachoua, who injected himself with Sheen's blood to prove his own treatment abilities.

Speaking with Dr. Oz on Tuesday (as reported by Page Six), Sheen shared that he traveled to Mexico and met with a physician asserting he knows how to cure both cancer and AIDS. Sheen said  he did not feel reluctant about engaging in these alternative treatments because he witnessed some positive results early on. He also shared that he stopped taking his HIV medications and his HIV was undetectable. However, before the start of Dr. Oz's show, Sheen announced that he received some disheartening news.

"I'm a little off my game because right before I walked out here, I got some results I was disappointed about," he said. "I had been non-detectable, non-detectable and checking the blood every week and then found out the numbers are back up." As a result, he is now back to his medications.

Dr. Chachoua, the alternative physician, is not licensed to practice medicine in America, only in Mexico. Sheen said that the doctor even injected himself with Sheen's blood to prove that he has already been treated. The doctor said Sheen's blood will not be any risk to him. 

Last year, the "Two and a Half Men" alum announced his HIV diagnosis on the "Today's Show." He said that he wanted to come clean of his condition because he felt overwhelmed by the many reports and rumours about it, which were all just "attacks and sub truths." He also revealed that he spent millions to keep those who knew from disclosing his HIV diagnosis before he announced it himself.
