fish oil?
Jul 4, 2006

I'm on Sustiva and Combivir and was wondering if fish oil supplements would have an adverse affect on my meds? I know garlic can lower the sustiva in your system. I'd like to take the fish oil to help lower my blood pressure.

thank you........

Response from Dr. Conway

There is absolutely no problem with you starting on fish oil, in terms of an interaction with your medications or in any other respect. I would, however, expect it to be of more benefit for your cholesterol and triglycerides rather than your blood pressure.

who long does it take for KS lesions to disappear ?
Armpit conditions...
