HIV MEDS & MILK THISTLE
Sep 26, 2008

Has there been any additional findings as to if the use of milk thistle to detox the liver and it's direct effect on the HIV meds being taken? My liver enzymes have been elevating and I was wondering if this would reduce the benefits of the meds I'm taking.

Response from Dr. Henry

I haven't seen any good data on milk thistle and the liver in the setting of use of antiretroviral therapy for HIV infectio. If any reader knows of a good reference/study please post! KH
