medication - test accuracy / symptoms (HELP please)
Mar 29, 2012
I would like to get an understanding of that whether any medication might have an impact over test accuracy ? I' ve get a HIV combo test P24 - MEIA, on the 90th days of the exposure (I had a relation without condom) result was negative. But 1 or 1,5 months before that I used antibiotics for my flu treatment. Apart from that I have a hay fever (allergy to olive pollens) and getting weekly vaccine treatments for 7 months. Are these two things might have an impact over my test result ? should I repeat testing ?
by the way, just before my last test my lymphs on neck were swollen, doctor told me this might be psychological ? I am very worried about that, can you help me please ? I still have a neck threat.
Many thanks for your replies in advance
