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?
