Kaltetra Epivir interaction with Tanalbit, Floramycens, Chelex ?
Mar 16, 2011

Hi Nigel. Thank you for your forum and answers. Priceless. I am 38yo male hiv+:12 years. Now on Kaletra/epivir.Latest labs:VL:0 CD4:1284

However I feel tired. So I took tests. Fatigue reason may be unhealthy bacteria and heavy metals. I asked the doctor if he treated/had experience with HIV people. He said yes. But he has suggested the following: 1. Tanalbit. Plant tannins 2. Floramycens (saccharomyces boulardii). For heavy metals:Chelex(Xymogen). Allicin (organic garlic extract 6000 mcg. dmsa 100mg. EDTA 300mg. Cilantro 300mg. Chlorella 300mg. NAC 200 mg. ALA 100mg

I've just seen the problems with garlic and Kaletra and I dont know if I can trust this doctor any more. Are the tanalbit/floramycens safe to take? Maybe the amount of garlic in chelex is very small and it is safe to take. Do you think so? Thanks so much for your help.

Response from Mr. Vergel

We have no interaction or safety data on those supplements, I am sorry.

Is it safe to take creatine with Lamivudine + Zidovudine and efavirenz?
