Medicine and antibody?

Mar 29, 1999

8 weeks after a possible exposure I was diagnosed with GERD. As a result,I was put on CIMETIDINE for 6 weeks and had a flu shoot in my Dr office. I had a negative ELISA on the 16 weeks. Now, I am wondering if this medicine (CIMETIDINE) or the flu shoot will prevent my body to produce antiboby to HIV?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No they would not affect antibody development. MH

No antibodies due to anorexia
My doctor's theory...?
