¿Debo preocuparme?

Jun 23, 2015

Hola Nelson,

Espero que estés bien. Hace un mes comencé mi tratamiento con efavirenz y truvada. Sin embargo, a los dos días comencé a tomar un suplememto herbal llamado livuno que tiene extracto de alcachofa y extracto de zarzaparrilla. La pregunta es, ¿este medicamento puede reducir mi nivel de medicamento en sangre exponiéndome a desarrollar resistencia? Te lo comento porque no siento que haya mejorado mucho, aunque sólo ha pasado un mes.

Te agradezco la información

Un gran saludo

Response from Mr. Vergel

No sabemos nada de ese suplemento. Por que lo tomas? Yo no introduceria nada nuevo en tus primeros 3 meses de tratamiento (excepto vitamina D a 4000 IU y un multivitaminico).
