Corticosteroids and HIV test
      #274216 - 10/13/13 01:10 AM

Do corticosteroids cause false negatives on HIV antibody tests. I took medrol dose pack 6 weeks before my 12 week test for 3 days, quit taking because of side effects. And I had a steroid shot a week before my 12 week test. Please advise.

Doesn't affect the test. I'm would be surprised you even asked, considering how easy it is to Google an answer, but it's not a surprise from someone having trouble dealing with the fact they are HIV negative.

Let's do us all a favor and cut this short. You have tested negative. Quit trying to find a reason to doubt that, and if you can't, then get some professional help.
