HIV medications and supplements

Aug 3, 2012

I'm using Isentress and Truvada. Will there be any contraindications or interactions If I add a supplement of Resveratrol and Pomegranate pills? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. Supplements, in general, can indeed interact with HIV medications. Check the archives in TheBody's"Choosing your medications" forum for specifics on the two you mentioned. Few supplements have been studied enough to adequately describe potential risks and/or benefits.

Be certain to discuss any use of supplements with your physician. Take care,
