amoxicillin and sustiva trvada comba
Sep 20, 2005

I recently had a root canal, now I'm starting to feel bad increased fatigueness, decreased appetite, i am starting to feel as if im coming down with a cold(I think it's a reaction to the root canal) should I start the antibiotics? im on sustiva and truvada

Response from Dr. Henry

A cold is usually due to a virus and is not helped by antibiotics. If you have a gum/tooth infection (usually localized swelling and pain) of some sort that often would be treated with antibiotics but should be evaluated as well. KH

Low VL, high CD4 and KS
Time to start meds?
