Thrush: Itraconazole

Aug 2, 2009

Dear Dr Bob, I am a regular reader of this site and really appreciate all your wonderful efforts in answering our important (and in many cases not so, but entertaining) questions. I am taking 2xper day after meals 200mg of Itraconazole. I will be going for blood tests again in a week or so (after my Thai hiv doc returms from Cape Town). Will this medication affect my CD4 and VL readings. I am not taking ART yet (but soon it seems!). Thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino


Itraconazole will not affect your CD4 count or HIV plasma viral load test results, but hopefully it is affecting your thrush!

Be well.

Dr. Bob
