I am a HIV positive person with undetectable viral load. I want to ask whether I can take  ARV drugs or not about 30 minutes before and after meals.

I would call your pharmacist or doctor for questions about your medication, because they have all the data at their fingertips.

It's my understanding that you are actually supposed to take the anti virals for HIV on an empty stomach.  There is supposed to be a 2 hour gap between eating.  So, often recommended before bed.
