Hi,I have been living with the disease for over 14 yrs,been undetectable for 6 yrs,cd4 above 1000, am now pregnant and on tyricten,atazanavir and norvir,are these meds safe for my baby or should I consider switching?Will I need to take AZT for a c section delivery?
Response from Dr. Henry
Or clinic has often used Truvada (Tyricten is generic form) and ritoanavir/atazanavir during pregnancy with good outcomes. Most of our patients achieve HIV levels less than detection level and have a vaginal delivery unless prior C-section or problemn with labor. With documented undetectable HIV levels use of AZT during labor may be unnecessary but historically is often still used. KH
