"Is it dangerous to take w/ HIV meds?" *URGENT*

Aug 11, 2012

I am taking- Intellance, Truvada, Reyataz, & Norvir & I am having a number of abdominal issues and I purchased an OTC colon detox and I was wondering if it will be dangerous to take. It is called Walgreen's Super Colon Detox & it is Senna leaf powder 576mg will it interfere with the HIV meds or make me ill??? Thank you, Dave

Response from Dr. Young

Hello Dave and thanks for posting.

Sorry, taking an over the counter colon detox is urgent? Maybe I'm missing something about your symptoms (if so, this should really be brought to your care provider's attention before taking any alternative remedies).

Having said that, I don't think that there will be any significant negative interactions with your HIV medications.

Be well, BY
