Hi doc im hiv positive, pregnant and using odimune is it safe or should i terminate?

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally we try to avoid use of Odimune duringp pregnancy particularly first trimester due to concerns about birth defects. That being said there is increasing experience with use of that drug during pregnancy due to the popularity and effectiveness of the drug. Most children born to women taking Odimune are healthy-the risk for a drug related problem appears low but not zero. I would discuss with your HIV doctor and obstetrics doctor before making any decisios. KH
