also does anyone know if taking any kinds of medications will do anything to the result?

OraQuick is 99%, plus FDA approved. Should only be sold to clinics though. I couldn't buy any... If your past your 3 months then oraquick will give you a 99% reading. As so it's advertised. FDA approved it so I trust the numbers. If you truly don't trust your results then try Home Access. If you don't trust that then go to a doc.

Don't confuse the tests. OraQuick is a blood test. OraSure is the oral test. Both of them are very reliable even though the OraQuick is more sensitive. Just make sure you take them at the correct time to get a conclusive result. Medications will not alter your test results unless you are on HART medications and then you could get a negative result. ie. people taking PEP.

OraQuickAdvance is an HIV 1/2 antibody test that can detect antibodies using oral fluid, finger-stick or venipuncture whole blood or plasma specimens.
