Interaction of HIV meds and herbal meds
Oct 29, 2007
I am a Physician Assistant in California working with coinfected patients. I had a question about safety of herbal medicines (saw palmeto) and HIV meds, specifically Atripla. The herb question comes up quite a bit, is there any reference thats available to help answer these questions?
Response from Dr. Pierone
I have not been able to find a searchable online reference for drug-herb interactions. There are several reference books on the market, but an online reference would be extremely helpful. If any of our readers knows of such a resource please let me know and I will report on it.
