can one use herbal supplements with retrovirals? what role do supplements play in an insignificant viral load/cd4 count/%
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
The short answer is yes, but. You have to be careful as some herbal supplements can interact with HIV meds causing the HIV meds not to have appropriate levels to control HIV infection. Always good to check with your pharmacist. There have not been enough randomized, controlled studies to determine the benefit of such supplements.
