Antibiotics and Hiv
Jan 13, 2002

Do antibiotics progress Hiv faster in the body or do it help slow Hiv down. If i was newly infected with hiv and taking antibiotics would Hiv show up on a 3 month test?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

Antibiotics have no effect on the actual process of HIV infection or on testing for HIV infection.
