Hiv + having belching recently
Feb 18, 2011
I am Hiv+ since 2004 ,have been on medicines since then,taking Virolans (Nevirapine 200mg Lamivudine 150 mg Stavudine 40 mg ).Present my viral load in undetectable,cd4 count 965, cd4/cd8 ratio 0.69, and cd 8 is 1130. Are these number in normal range.
Recently i am belching a lot may be due to gas,visited a doc but didnt tell him that i am hiv+, he suggested me to use Prilosec.Can i use them with my hiv drugs.
I would really appreciate your advice.
Thank you for you time and patience

Those labs results are quite good and overlap CD4 levels seen in some HIV- persons. Usually OK to take omeprazole (Prilosec) with your particular HIV regimen. KH
