Is it okay to use ilvitrim?
I’m taking ARVs and I’ve just been given ilvitrim, is this safe?
Thanks for getting in touch.
Ilvitrim is an antibiotic, please see here:
It’s commonly given to people in low-income countries if their CD4 is lower than 350 and in high-income countries if the CD4 is below 200. This is to protect against other infections.
It is very safe to take with ARVs.
