IBUPROFEN
Dec 31, 2013

DOES IBUPROFEN LOWER HIV VIRAL LOADS? IS THERE ANY HIV MEDS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT TAKE IBUPROFEN WITH?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) has no effect on HIV viral loads.

NSAIDs can raise the risk of kidney injury and should be used only when needed. Because tenofovir (Viread, and a part of Truvada, Atripla, Complera and Stribild) can also cause kidney injury, the simultaneous use of tenofovir and NSAIDs should be done cautiously, and limited to those people with normal kidney function.
