I have been on a regimine of Combivir/Sustiva for some time now. Are there any reasons why I should not take L-Lysine with this combo?

Thanks for your work on this site!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm not aware of any negative interactions between L-lysine (an amino acid supplement) and Combivir or Sustiva. That said, I'm not convinced that there's a lot of reason to take the supplement.

It's a free market and society-- you can ingest what you'd like, just be cautious about claims of benefit. BY

Truvada replacing combivir
How high and how much time
