fish oil and truvada/sustiva
Jan 23, 2009

hello Doctor Keith, Would there be a detrimental effect to my haart regimen of truvada/sustiva if I take a fish oil capsule at the same time as my haart tablets or should I take it at a different time of day? I take truvada and sustiva at 10pm each night. many thanks uk

Response from Dr. Henry

Due to the fat content (fatty meals increase Sustiva levels and risk for side effects) of fish oil I would generally recommend taking fish oil capsules at a differen time than the Sustiva (such as at breakfast or dinner/6PM). KH
