Iron and Anemia
Dec 20, 1999


Can taking Iron supplements help reverse the anemia caused by taking Combivir (or make any change at all)?


Response from Mr. Molaghan

Hello Taking iron supplements alone will not reverse the anemia caused by Combivir. It is possible, however, for a person to have both iron deficiency anemia and medication induced anemia. In such cases, it is essential to take iron supplements in addition to treating the "Combivir induced anemia."
