Rheumatoid Arthritis

Jun 17, 2007


Just wondering if Rheumatoid Arthritis (anklylosing spondilytis) would have any affect on an hiv test? I've tested at 1,3,4,6,8.5,10 months negative and want to know if I can put the testing behind me. I've been taking 200mg of Celebrex a day.

Please answer, thank you kindly.


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello J,

Celebrex would not affect HIV test results. Your repeated (and excessive!) HIV test results are indeed conclusive. HIV is not your problem.
