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?

Does eflaten affect the libido or cause an early climax? If one partner uses it what can we do to get a baby without affecting the partner who is 'negative'?

its a large white tablet imprinted m152. ## what the are active ingredients of an oval shaped white tablet imprinted M 152 on it. state the various uses and side effects. thank you. ## What does m152cure ## Hello everyone, Based on my research, a white capsule-shaped film coated tablet imprinted with “M 152” on one side and blank on the other side, is identified as an HIV-1 medication containing the following active ingredients: Efavirenz 600mg + Lamivudine 300mg + Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg. 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....

What will happen to my partner if we are being intimate while I'm using eflaten tabs? ## Hello, Sathizone! How are you? Nothing, medication that you take won't have any effect on your partner. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Efavirenz as possible including nausea, headache, depression, back pain and abdominal pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What will happen if I skip two days not taking my eflaten.
