Tell every doctor and other medical professional about your HIV status and drugs.

Next » « Previous


Health professionals need to know about your HIV status to help save time with diagnosis and to avoid prescribing treatments that can harm you. Knowledge also helps them take steps to avoid becoming infected with HIV.

Doctors also need to know what drugs you take to be sure that any newly prescribed drugs don’t create a harmful interaction or blunt the effectiveness of either drug. The easiest way to accomplish this is to always carry with you an up-to-date list of your medications. To make your life easier, Survivorship A to Z provides a list you can use.
