Vitamins and Atripla
Mar 15, 2007

My question is regarding Atripla and Centrum Mutivitamin/Multimineral supplement. Will it interact with my medicane i am taking. I also just recently started a low dose of HCTZ 25mg for high blood pressure. And how will my high blood pressure interact with me being HIV pos.....I am currently at 338 CD4 count and undetectable.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Vitamins and HCTZ do not interact with HIV medications. Being HIV positive does not have a direct effect on hypertension and vice versa. You need to control both conditions independently.

By the way, these are the types of basic questions you should be discussing with your HIV specialist! Don't be shy about asking!
