Atripla and L Lysine
Mar 25, 2009

Is it safe to take L Lysine for Cold Sore Treatment while I'm taking Atripla?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I don't know why you'd take lysine (I'm not convinced there's any benefit, except to the supplement company); but there's no obvious drug-drug interaction with your HIV medication.
