Activated charcoal and hiv meds
Apr 20, 2017


Currently im on meds (artripla).. Im taking those meds on midnight (12am)... If i wanna take some activated charcoal around afternoon or evening (before 6pm) to remove some toxins from my body, will it reduce the effectiveness of the hiv drugs? Or will it cause drug resistance?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Activated charcoal can affect absorption of HIV medications and has not been proven to remove toxins from your body. I would not take it.

In health,
