Poppers and Cd4 counts
Sep 1, 2011
I am HIV pos...my cd4 count went from 492 to 372...now 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: http://www.aidsmap.com/Poppers/page/1045243/
