HIV related
Jul 23, 2011

I am HIV with CD4 count of 413 and now suffering from flu over more than 7 days and currently using antiboitics which are 500mg (just forgeting the name) should I be worried.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Since your CD4 count is in the normal range (>350) and appear to be under medical care, you shouldn't be at any great risk. Just be sure to stay in contact with your healthcare provider if there are any unexpected symptoms and to get the scheduled follow up for your "flu".

Get well soon, BY
