Horney Goat Weed
Mar 22, 2008
I am a 31 YOBM HIV+, undectable, taking Atripla; however, unable to get the erection I desire if at all. Does Horney Goat Weed cause problems with my regiment?
Response from Dr. Henry
One reference I checked co-listed goat weed and St Johns wort. St Johns wort drug can decrease the levels of the efavirenz in Atripla so use when taking Atripla could be a problem. I could find no convincing evidence (published paper from peer reviewed journal )for the horny goat weed to be effective for impotence. I could find no reference specifically on safety of horny goat weed and efavirenz/Atriple. KH
