|Atripla interaction with herbal tea mixture
Jun 22, 2011
Hello - thanks for your time in answering questions on this site. I have been on Atripla for nearly 2 years with great results. I was recently given an herbal tea mixture as a gift that I really like. It includes the following ingriedients: Camellia Leaf, Terilla Leaf, Mori Bark Extract, Alisma Root Extract and Inperate Root. Will any of these cause issues with the good results I have on Atripla? Thanks again for your time!
Response from Mr. Vergel
We do not have data on herbs and Atripla. I tell people not to take supplements to which we have no interaction data at the same time as they take their medications. Most supplements have not been studied in HIV and will probably never be. As a precaution, drink your tea 4 hours before or after your medication.
