I am taking combiver/nevaripine with good results, I wanted to bring my cholestrol levels down as they are 7.7, i currently take fish oils, exercise and eat healthy and was advised to take garlic supplements such as natural unique. Would taking this cause any interactions with meds. Thanks for your advice

Response from Dr. Henry

There is a concern that garlic could induce changes in liver metabolism which could decrease the levels of the nevirapine--I would not recommend use of garlic because of that. KH
