HIV / AIDS Overview

Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spectrum of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).[5][6][7] Following initial infection, a person may not notice any symptoms or may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness.[8] Typically, this is followed by a prolonged period with no symptoms.[9] As the infection progresses, it interferes more with the immune system, increasing the risk of common inf...

does ilvitrim and nevarapine work the same
2 Replies RSS
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?

REMUNE When Can I Get the Vaccine Shot?
7 Replies RSS
When will Remune be available i need this vaccine desperately? Why has this not been approved yet i am sick from taking the drugs i vomit daily :( ## The developer is actually now working on a different medication that combines Remind with something else. It has not been presented yet, for FDA approval. And it is not a vaccine, nor a cure, if it does pass evaluations and get approved, it will only be another treatment therapy. I am sorry that the medications make you so ill. Do you take anything for the nausea? ## There is nothing worse than the miserable side-effects associated with toxic drugs. A therapeutic vaccine such as Remune would help dramatically. ## I just read about the Remune news finally being submitted for approval. How long does it take before the FDA will approve this v...

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....

Hi, my bf is hiv positive and i am hiv negative. We use protection during intimacy and try to be as safe as possible. However the other day the condom broke. We went to the doctor and i was given eflaten which i took within 72 hours and still on it til now. I just want to know, does this drug prevent someone from being infected with hiv if they are negative and taken within 72 hours? ## Hello, Babs! How are you?

The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, headache and stomach pain. How long did your doctor tell you to take it?
