Stribild and Anaesthesia
« on: June 03, 2014, 01:24:31 PM »
Hello everyone! Today is my day 8 on Stribild - and I love this medication. Except morning need to swallow one pill I don't know, that I have HIV. Site effects are 0 and I hope it will stay like that. Just small thing - don't feel really hungry as usually. Is this ok? Before starting med. I was hungry all the time and now I don't feel this. Going for my lab next week so hopefully will see some great numbers after. Starting were CD4-384 VL- 50K  I have just one question- I have been with my dentist today and he wants to do some work under local anaesthesia injected to my mouth... I just wander if this can somehow interact with Stribild? Thank you for let me know! Lots of love! X  L.

The use of anesthesia is fine with HIV medication. But even if it was not informing your dentist that you are HIV+ and telling them what medications you are on, as well as providing a copy of your most recent lab blood work is the proper way to allay any concerns for both patient and doctor. If you feel uncomfortable disclosing your HIV status to your dentist you should consider switching to a new one.
