Hello, I have been HIV+ for over 4 years. My CD4 count is 350 and Viral load around 9,000. I just started treatment with Atripla. I work out regularly, and two or three times a year I take a stack of supplements for a two week period. This includes Creakic, Leukic and Gakic (All manufactured by Muscletech). Do you anticipate any interactions between any of these and Atripla? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

I reviewed the ingredients of those products and see no major concerns about drug interactions though they have not been formally studied so discussion with your HIV provider and more careful monitoring over the short term is recommended. KH
