|Amoxicillin, Truvada and Sustiva
Dec 14, 2007
I have been prescribed antibiotics for an abscess around my wisdom teeth. Are they safe to take with the HAART I am on. Also, when I was originally diagnosed, it was because I had oral thrush. Is it possible for the amoxicillin to prevoke the thrush again even though my CD4 is over 1000?
Response from Dr. Henry
Amoxicillin should be OK with your HIV meds. Taking an antibiotic can result in a flare up of yeast infection but a high CD4 count should be protective in most patients. KH
Weight gain, general bloating, is it IRIS?
