HIV Medication and Anti Bacteria Medication
Dec 12, 2013

Dear Doctor,

I wonder can i take anti bacteria medication while i am on truvada and stocrin?

For cosmetic reason, i recently visited a skin specialist for treatment of acne problem and the doctor prescribed some antibiotic and anti bacteria medication.

Please advice.

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

In general, there are no significant interactions between HIV medications and commonly used antibiotics.

I'd suggest asking your pharmacist or look at online references to check.

Be well, BY
