Is it ok to take GABA supplements with my meds?

Jun 18, 2011

Is it ok to take GABA supplements with my meds? Iâve been on truvada and efavirenz for about 8 months and my CD4 has increased from 250 to 450 and VL undetectable. I got gym and eat healthy but I battle with sleep and muscle cramps a friend recommended GABA supplement. Is it safe to use GABA with my meds.

Response from Dr. Frascino


I'm not aware of any drug-drug interactions between GABA and Truvada or efavirenz. However, as with all supplements, herbs, over-the-counter products or other prescription medications, you should always check with your HIV physician specialist before adding anything to your combination-antiretroviral regimen.
