Hello. I have been poz since 99 and I am doing very well. However I have had parasite infections. I am currently on Yodoxin. Is this treatment harmful? Do parasites pose a health threat to someone living with HIV? Thanks.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
Yodoxin is a medication used to treat certain types of parasitic infections. So long as you don't need to take the medication forever (or for longer than a month), I wouldn't be too concerned about the treatment.
Parasitic infections can be a problem for people, with or without HIV, but in general, if your CD4 count is about ~350, I don't expect that you should have any special difficulties. BY
