Poppers and Cd4 counts

Sep 1, 2011

I am HIV cd4 count went from 492 to my doc wants to put me on meds...i did use poppers before my bloodwork...should i get another labwork after nonuse of poppers before going on meds? How much can the poppers lower your cd4 count?

Thanks for your help


Response from Mr. Vergel

I doubt that poppers made your CD4 cells drop that fast. I would follow your doctor's recommendation since you are within guideline recommendations for treatment. And go easy of poppers since they have health implications:


nutrition supplements and AIDS, mental, neurological and side effect symptoms
