breast milk

i was at a party and a girl who had recently became a mother, put breastmilk on her finger and put it in my mouth, I have read that enzymes and stomach acid would kill the virus, but I am on anti-depressants, tablets that reduce stomach acid and metformin for type 2 diabetes, would I still have the neccesary enzymes and stomach acid to kill the virus taking into consideration my medical conditions, I also do not know her HIV status do not know a lot about her

Adults cannot get HIV from breast milk.  That only applies to infants because their immune systems are immature.  Also, breast milk only becomes a risk (to infants) after consistent ongoing breast feeding.

You don't have an HIV concern.
