It doesn't say that it's intended to cure anything, but rather "treat" the condition, like most prescription medications. And as far as side effects are concerned, I've actually seen some sites list two pages worth of symptoms for this particular medication....

I have a 4 week old baby on nevirapine at the clinic. They also gave me ilvitrim, so I just want to know if that is the same thing or must I get nevirapine as well? ## Hello, Lu! How are you and your baby? Is your baby HIV positive or negative? If they are negative, then normally just the Ilvitrim is given, the Nevirapine is an antiviral that's used to treat an HIV infection. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ## Can I give my baby the ilvitrim suspension at anytime or must he drink it at the same time everyday? The doctor didn't explain this to me. Also, are ilvitrim tablets the same as nevirapine? ## hi i am hiv positive mom and on exclusive breestfeeding and my child was tested negativ...

Hi I am hiv positive and on tribuss medication, I now have a 9 weeks son who was born negative and was given nevirapine at birth till he was 6weeks then given Iltrim.I was breastfeeding exclusively till he was 2weeks then gave him breastfeed, formula and cereal because he was not getting full on breast milk only does this mean that my son is now hiv positive even though I take my treatment religiously and gave him his ? ## Hello, Nikkie! How are you? No, mixed feeding would not affect that. You both just need to continue to take the prescribed medications, until he is done breastfeeding, as reported by the NIH. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you so so much for your honesty, I also have the same problem. I was even afraid of giving my daughter a flu medicine because we ...

2 Replies RSS
I am on ARV since september last year, 4months on Tenarenz which managed to make my viral load undetectable, since its nolonger on market I've changed to Eflaten which contains same ingredients, Can someone tell me if this Eflaten will manage to maintain my viral load undetectable. Thanks. ## Hello, Siffy! How are you? If it contains the same active ingredient, then it should work for just as well as the other one. I can't say you'll stay undetectable, because sometimes our bodies get used to a medication and it may not be as effective. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Good day Can you tell me if I have yellow eyes due to HiV treatment should
