Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello, I am not aware of any interactions or dangers with the supplements that you are using. Many supplements are marketing with general claims of being good for the immune system. But we are lacking studies that demonstrate humans with HIV infection benefit from immune-boosting supplements. This is not to say that don't work, just that we don't have proof. Thanks for posting, good luck!
