Sustiva/combivir combo - how to gain weight
Feb 20, 2002
Dear Dr. Dieterich,
I heve been on a sustiva/combo cocktail for almost a year, and it's working great. I love to exercise and I go to the gym quite often. I do not seem to gain any weight though (muscle mass) I do not loose any weight either (which is good). I am cosidering using creatine to help, but I would like to have your advise before I do it. Is it good to take it? Is there a problem if I take it while taking my combo? is there any interaction? If yes, Is there anything I can take/do apart from eating well to gain weight?. Grateful for your advise. Thank you and have a nice day.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Creatine is reasonably safe as long as you stay well hydrated and drink enough water. I would recommend that you have your MD check your testosterone level and if low for your age to supplement it. Good luck!
