combination of drugs

Feb 4, 2011

can i use combivir,stocrin and i-cura?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

I-Cura is a South African supplement product that is touted to have immune benefits and contains a variety of compounds (I can't find a full disclosure of the ingredients).

While it's likely that its ok to use I-Cura with your HIV medications, it's hard to be certain, since there aren't any pharmacology studies to assure this. If you elect to use the supplement, be sure to let your health care providers or doctors know so that they can monitor you for the safety of your combinations.

Be well, BY
