weight loss
Dec 3, 2004

If you are HIV positive and on meds can you take weight loss pills to help lose whight.

Response from Dr. Henry

There are no safe and effective weight loss pills than can be unconditionally recommended. An understanding of your current and past HIV situation and current meds as well as other medical conditions is crucial to evaluate the potential risk for a given weight loss approach. Your HIV specialist coupled with a dietician would be the best persons to seek counsel. KH
