Who’s most likely to have a reaction to a sun-sensitizing drug?

ANSWER

Not every person who uses sun-sensitizing drugs has a reaction. If it does happen, it can be a one-time occurrence, or it can happen each time the drug is taken and sun exposure happens. People with HIV are among the most likely group to have sun sensitivity to drugs.
