Hi can Novatrim suspension be given to a baby ho is HIV negative?
Hi, how are you doing?
Yes baby can still take Novatrim.
Novatrim is used to prevent other infections, not prevent HIV.
It is used when there is some risk of transmission from infections other than HIV that mum is at risk of. It is usually stopped after breastfeeding.
