Can I take Creatine?
Oct 16, 2000

I have been HIV+ for just over a year. I have a Tcell count of 990 and a viral load of 162. I get my next result on Monday and am hoping it will be undetectable. I am currently on Ziagen, Sustiva, Zerit and Epivir. I feel I get positive results when I combine Creatine with my weight lifting. Is there any reason I should not be taking this? Thanks for your advice.

Response from Dr. Henry

No if used within the recommended doses that should not be a problem. KH
