Hi Dr Young, first thank you for all your answers, my question is if i can take a herbal multivitamin with out iron but it contain ginger and astragalus, I just want to know if there any problem with my current regimen of Combivir and Viramune. Thank you for your help, Spanish

Response from Dr. Young

Dear Spanish- Thanks for your comments-- I'm not aware of any significant drug-drug interactions between the supplements and antiretrovirals that you've listed.

I'd recommend letting your doctor know what supplements or vitamins your taking, just to keep the records straight.

Best health, BY
