I am on Atripla, but want to start using fenugreek, can I use both tabs together?
| Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
The first question is why you want to use Fenugreek. According to our National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, there is little scientific support for its use, other than possible benefits for non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
Since, the herb is not FDA-regulated, so it's drug interactions, safety or effectiveness have not been established. It's difficult therefore to answer your question about interactions with Atripla.
On balance, I wouldn't recommend it. BY
