Airborne Effervescent Health Formula and Labs

May 31, 2008


Is there any reason why some on HIV meds should not take Airborne, an effervescent health formula. This product is not FDA approved, but rather is more in the category of vitamins is very popular in general with the population, especially when traveling via airplane. Will Airborne interfere with meds and lab results?


Response from Dr. Holodniy

This product has not been studied with HIV meds. Most of the ingredients are amino acids and vitamins, so those should not affect the HIV meds. Echinacea might, as it has the same metabolic pathway in the liver as some HIV meds. Not sure about some of the other herbs in the product. It shouldn't affect lab test results.
