Weight loss programs

Can a drus like Cortislim affect the use of any meds currently being used for HIV?

Response from Dr. Conway

Cortislim is a proprietary combination of vitamin C along with extracts of magnolia bark, green tea leaf and banana leaf extracts that may help with weight loss in situationally obese people. There are no reports of interactions with HIV medications. Its use in HIV-infected patients, however, should be strictly limited to people with normal immune systems and no body shape changes who need to lose weight and cannot do it with exercise and diet alone.

please answer.
