Hydroxycut Hardcore caps
Nov 28, 2008

Hi Doctor Nelson, I was wondering if it is ok to start taking Hydroxycut Hardcore liquid caps to reduce some of my body fat. I am currently taking Reyataz, Norvir and Isentress. Also my friend wants to know also but he takes atripla so we were wondering if taking the hydroxycut will affect our medication i am afraid it might cause drug resistance. We are both at undectectable levels and my tcell count is about 500 his is lower around 350 but both healthy. Thanks in advance..

Response from Mr. Vergel

I would avoid that product. It increases blood pressure and has been associated with isolated cases of liver toxicity. We also have no drug interaction data using it with Norvir and other HIV medications.
