test result
      #22340 - 09/12/01 09:03 PM

I heard that some anti-allergic medicine (i.e piriton) will prevent the body from producing antibody...right?? Will someone take this medicine getting the -ve result for HIV even he/she is inflected. IF yes, need he/she stop to have those medicine for 3 months before take the blood test so that to get the most accurate results???

piriton is an antihistamine. i hope its not an anti-antibody. antibodies are there to help neutralize foreign invaders, thus neutralizing and helping production of immunity. this is just my opinion based on the definition of antibodies, as well as my knowledge that antibodies are beneficial. so my logical understanding would conclude that you would be a pretty sick puppy if you were taking medication which halted the production of antibodies. i am just taking a guess. anyone, feel free to correct me if i am wrong. good luck
