RE: Is L-carnitine a good weight loss supplement
Jul 24, 2010

Regarding the article called Is L-carnitine a good weight loss supplement. I'm very interested in taking L-Carnitine as a supplement for weight loss. My doctor told me that it was not convenient for me as the meds of my ART are synthesized by the liver, taking L-Carnitine could lead to my meds to fail. Is this correct?

Response from Mr. Vergel

There are no known interactions between carnitine and HIV medications.


Testosterone, Judith Rabkin's studies, eugonadal, seriously underweight, depression
Please S.O.S. I need some hope
