Weight gain supplements and ARV's
Apr 26, 2013

I am on first line taking tenofovir,lamivudine and efavirenz. So is it safe for me to take weight gain supplements whilst I am on ARV's

Response from Mr. Vergel

Yes, as long as you do not take them with Efavirenz (2 hours before or after) and they do not contain too much creatine that can load up your kidneys. You also have to be careful if you are lactose or milk intolerant since most contain whey protein.
