Can I take creatine and protein if I have HIV and HEP C?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would definitely discuss any over the counter drugs or supplements with your HIV provider to be certain that whatever you are taking is safe. I would bring the bottles themselves in so your provider can see ALL ingredients in the tablets.

I know one well done study in 2009 showed that muscle training benefited HIV infected patients but creatine added no extra benefit - only cost.
