My husband has had full blown since, 97. He's been taking, Diflcan, 200 mg 2x day. He's stopped for a short time for a couple weeks, bout a year ago. With Doc's ok. But it came right back. So he went back on it. He's on Agenerase/Zerit/Epiver/Norvir. He was coughing up "fresh" blood this morning. Can there be a connection? Thank you, Susan
Response from Dr. Henry
Without knowing his most recent CD4 count and past history it is tough to comment. Usually Diflucan at that dose is only given for serious Candida/yeast infections. Coughing up blood can mean anything from a mild respiratory tract irritation to something very serious so that symptom should be discussed with his HIV doc to triage/evaluate properly. KH
