weight loss supplements
Jan 15, 2007
Hello Dr. Young,
I continue to do well on my recently implemented Atripla regimen and am wondering if the new weight loss fads would be harmful. Specifically, the hoodia/guarana pops. I'm sure the best bet is to eat less and exercise without supplements, but was just wondering about any interaction concerns. As always, thanks very much for your help. JB.
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
If it was my decision, I'd not want to risk decreasing the effectiveness of my HIV medications and work with my healthcare providers in finding a sustainable program of diet and exercise.
Hope this helps, BY
