Im currently on Truvada and Isentress, my CD count is 958. I heard Pomegranate Supplements can reduce cholesterol and "clean" arteries.Is Pomegranate safe to use with my medications? Thank you

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

I'm not aware of any significant drug-drug interactions between your HIV meds and the supplements. I'm skeptical of the benefits of the pomegranate supplement, but be sure to let your doctor know that you're taking it, so that you can be properly monitored for effectiveness and any potential side effects.

Be well, BY
