Greetings Doc Barbara,

I am from the Philippines Hep B and HIV co infected, and on efavirenz, lamivudine, and tenofovir combo, my triglycerides is 400+ and I am now on medication (Lopid 600mg once a day during bedtime) and will take it for the next 2 months (I already completed the 1 month). I would like to ask if its safe for me?

Thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

Greetings to you in the Philippines!

Yes Lopid is safe for you.

I also think you are on a good combination for your HBV - Lamivudine and Tenofovir have potent activity against both HIV and HBV...
