| Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
I'm not aware of any significant interactions between Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana (the active ingredients of Meratrim) and your HIV medications.
That said, we lack formal studies of such interactions, safety or effectiveness of many of the dietary supplements, and for this reason, I tend to advise other means (like diet and exercise) to achieve weight loss.
I'd make sure that you let your care provider know when you start on the supplements in order that any needed monitoring can be done.
Be well, BY
