Hello and thanks for posting.
There's no particular reason why you couldn't take selenium supplements with your HIV medications. Indeed a recent study suggests that in a low income African country (presumably a place where malnutrition was a problem), selenium supplementation actually slowed the rate of CD4 cell decline before the initiation of HIV treatment.
How this observation translates to your particular situation isn't clear.
