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!

does mix feeding make a child positive

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 ...
