are there any negative interaction between hiv meds and melatonin?

Oct 30, 2003

i am on a regimen of trivizir since apr/02 and viramune jul/03.. ever since i started taking viramune i cant sleep well.. i was wondering if i could take melatonin once in while to catch up on my sleep.. are there any known interactions?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Be acreful, your lack of sleep could be the Ziagen in the Trizivir also. Melatonin-HAART interactions have not been looked at, so we do not know. Talk to your doctor about Ambien or Sonata also, they are sleep aids. And do not drink caffeine after 4 pm. Do not take Kava Kava, another supplement that may help with sleep , since it was found to cause liver toxicity.
