Hello and thanks for your post.
Absolutely. Trimethoprim/sulfa (Bactrim, Septra, Cotrimoxazole) is recommended to prevent Pneumocystic pneumonia (PCP) and other AIDS-related infections for all persons with HIV/AIDS with CD4 counts below 200 (or 15%).
There are no significant drug-drug interactions between TMP/SMX and your HIV medications.
Be well, BY
