Glucosimine Interacts with HIV Meds?
Dec 9, 2004

I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. A friend told me about Glucosimine as an alternative treatment for Osteoarthritis, I need to know if this would have a effect on my current meds, which are Viracept (nelfinavir mesylate), epivir, Viread, and wellbutrin.

Response from Dr. Henry

Glucosamine +/- chondroitin is used for osteoarthritis and should be OK with your HIV meds though caution and careful observation is advised. KH
