Are these side effects from Atroiza?

Am a 19 yr old girl I just foundout that am HIV+ and am pregnant.

I started taking Atroiza but since I started I hardly sleep. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and have a bad headache when I ask nurse she say its part of treatment. Is it Atroiza doing this or what?

I know HIV can’t be cured and I doing this for my unborn baby because if I die who wil raised her/him?

Did erectile dysfunction drugs cause viral load increase?

I am a married man and was diagnosed 3 years ago. I have been receiving support from my spouse and she is negative and tested negative. I was on ARVs and started Atripla about a year ago.

My CD4 and viral load was undetectable since January 2013. I went for a checkup in July and it shot up to 2000. I have not missed a single dose of Atripla, but maybe when I was taking it was a hour apart and not exactly the same time.

My doctor said I should take it the same time everyday. I was scared to mention to the doctor that I did go to the local men’s health clinic for erectile dysfunction and they gave me some nose drops to take to help with that. I did not tell them my status cos I was embarrassed.

I want to know will me taking any medication for erectile dysfunction affect my viral load. Also I came across a gel or tablet called kamagra gel, which can be used for erectile dysfunction. Can I take that and will it affect my viral load and CD4 count? Will taking any medication for erectile dysfunction affect my viral load as I am on Atripla and am happy with the Atripla. I don’t have any side effects. My viral load and CD4 count was undetected for the past 2 and a half years until this year July when I went for my checkup and blood test. I am 41 yrs old.

Can I change the time I take Odimune?


I’ve been taking Odimune in the mornings between 8:30 – 9 am for 6 days now and they make me feel dizzy all day.

I wanted to know if I change the time I’m taking them to maybe 9 pm everyday. Will there be a problem since I’ve just started a week ago?

Is Odimune safe in pregnancy?

I am an HIV positive woman and I am pregnant.

I have just received Odimune but I have a few concerns.

The leaflet which accompanies the batch states that Odimune is not recommended for pregnant women because safety and efficacy has not been established.

Is Odimune safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?

Questions about Tribuss

I was diagnosed with HIV in January 2013 during regular HIV testing. My CD4 count was 91 and my GP put me straight on Tribuss.

I’ve never been sick of any illness since July 2012. I’d like to know about Tribuss. What do I do if I forgot to take the pill and remember only the next day?

I have also been given Trixazole (Bactrim). Should I take the pill as well?

And what mult-vitamins will be good for me?
