Hi
Yes an HIV +ve person can take probiotics. I recommend a product called REUTERI as the actual strain of bacteria in the product has been used in clinical trials in both adults and children who are HIV positive and no harmful effects were seen.
Should you be interested I can e-mail the actual studies to you.
REUTERI is available in chewable tablets and the dose is only 1 per day.
