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).[9][10][11] Following initial infection, a person may not notice any symptoms or may experience a brief period of influenza-like illness.[5] Typically, this is followed by a prolonged period with no symptoms.[6] As the infection progresses, it interferes more with the immune system, increasing the risk of common i...

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 ...

Genvoya giving a strange smell after taking it
1 Reply RSS
Every time I take my daily Genvoya (just started on it after switching from Atripla) about 3 months ago, I start to smell a strange scent. It doesn't smell bad, sort of sweet, sort of like plugging in one of those strong Airwick plug-ins... I know - sounds strange. I take the medicine with supper at night, and I get the smell all evening and during the night. But by the morning, the scent has pretty much disappeared, only to be completely gone by Noon. But then it starts all over again later in the day when i take the next dosage. Anyone else have this issue? I know it is minor, but just curious if this is common. My doctor doesn't have a clue, as usual on these types of symptoms.. ## That can be a side effect of most medications, they can mess with your sense of smell, and tast...

Hi... I'm HIV positive and my son is three months old and I haven't been taking my medication for a week now but I give my son the ilvitrim suspension every day. Is he at the risk of being infected? I'm so worried. ## Hello, Kaylor! How are you and your son? Did they test him at birth to see if he was infected? Ilvitrim is an antibiotic, so I'm not sure why he's on it.

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.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Good day Can you tell me if I have yellow eyes due to HiV treatment should ## Hi, I just started using Eflaten..i first experience minor side effects but in a month i seems OK...But now I have big pi...
