Milk Thistle and Cocktails
Nov 16, 2005
I have read two different conflicting studies now on the interaction of Milk Thistle and HIV meds. I am on Reyataz Norvir and Emtriva. My eyes are yellowing greatly and its been over a year. I decided to start aking Milk THistle. Will this hurt me or my meds?
Response from Dr. Henry
Generally the use of milk thistle and your HIV regimen should not be a problem (though uncertain what its benefit is for liver problems). The yellow eyes may be due to the Reyataz and if that is the case then consider discussing a change to another drug (many options) with your HIV doc! KH
