Ginseng and My HIV Meds

Sep 15, 2012

Good Day: I am taking the follow HIV medications (1 Kivexa and 2 Nevirapine) per day. My question is about Ginseng. Can I take Ginseng with my HIV meds or will it counteract what my HIV meds are doing?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

I'm not aware of any significant negative interactions between ginsing products and your HIV medications.

You should let your doctor know about this and any other supplements that you're taking, so that you can be appropriately monitored for any unsuspected problems.

Be well, BY

from atripla to tribuss, now odimune. Is this good?
Accidentally took my meds a minute late
