|HIV drugs during pregnancy
Sep 11, 2003
Do you have a particular set of HIV drugs that you prescribe for women during pregnancy? Are there certain ones to avoid altogether?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
Many of the available antiretroviral drugs have been used safely in pregnancy. The precise choice of a regimen will depend on several factors, including the woman's prior treatment history, CD4 count, and plasma viral load. The only antiretroviral drug that is not generally recommended for use during pregnancy is efavirenz; we have only limited information on the use of tenofovir. Treatment guidelines regarding the use of antiretrovirals during pregnancy are available on this web site.
What are the chances?
