garlic supplement and atripla
May 27, 2009

I take a garlic supplement daily. Recently I started on Atripla. A friend claims the garlic could interfere with my atripla. Is that true. Or is it safe to take garlic supplement with atripla?

Thanks a lot for your time and the great work you are doing at the Body!


Response from Dr. Young

Hello Bert and thanks for your post.

Within reason, there's no significant interaction between the garlic supplement and your Atripla.

Be well, BY
