Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Generally analgesics (pain medications) don't have any significant interactions with HIV medications. I'd be careful about overdosing on NSAIDs (like ibuprofen) while taking tenofovir, since both can add to kidney injury, particularly in those who have underlying kidney disease.

So, overall, no particular risks on your HIV status.

Take care, BY
