Been a little sick

Dec 7, 2011

I have been HIV Positive for Just over 2 years, and l have had a little bit stress within my relationship, and have had a couple of days or bad sleep and diarrhoea. (as i have not been able to take Psyllium Husks with water each day.

07/05/11 Started Viramune 150 mg/mL 2 x per day

07/05/11 Started Viread 300 mg/mL 1 x per day

07/05/11 Started Epivir 200 mg/mL 2 x per day

10/04/11 Viral Load (HIV): 38 copies/mL

10/04/11 CD4 Count: 724 cells/mm3

10/04/11 CD4 %: 33 %

In the past i have been taking each morning Psyllium Husks with water, this have been helping my diarrhoea, and making my stools strong.

Is taking Psyllium Husks with water each day ok with my meds, vitamins?

Your answer would be appreciated.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello TS and thanks for posting from Thailand.

There are no significant interactions between the psyllium and your HIV medications. If this doesn't help with your diarrhea, I'd suggest speaking to your health care provider.

Be well, BY
