Ginko Biloba
Dec 28, 2008

I heard that ginkgo biloba can help prevent and/or lessen the effects of AIDS related dementia. Is this true? And if so, would it interfere with any of the ART medicine? I am not current taking meds but I am curious. The thought of getting dementia scares me to death!

Thank you.

Response from Mr. Vergel

We have no data on Ginko and HIV. Several studies have shown that Ginko does not work better than placebo for memory loss.
