Can medicine affect the HIV test result. Please reply to query.
Can rabeprazole medicine affect HIV test result.
Acid production in my body is very high so I'm taking this medicine for a long time.
I had 10 weeks HIV -ve test. I'm afraid of false negative due to intake of this medicine.
I had sex with a prostitute. To eradicate my worry, I finally decided to go for a HIV test.
I tested HIV non-reactive (non-reactive means HIV negative right ?) 10th week.
but couldn't stop worry as I tested in 10 week and not after 3 months. Also I'm taking 'Rabeprazole' 20 mg everyday empty stomach before meal.
That day also, I took medicine and meal before HIV test.
I didn't find any symptoms after test till today. I don't have courage to go for HIV test again.
Please advise, is there a possibility I can be HIV.
