|Ester-C vitamin supplement
Jan 2, 2009
Hi, A friend of mine suggested for me to take a vitamin supplement called Ester-C; it contains Vitamin C, Calcium, and something called C-Sorb(Citrus Bioflavonoides,, Sweet Orange, Tangerine, Lime,Lemon , Acerola, Rutin, Hesperidin Complex, and Vitmain C Metabolites. I have read about the posible increase in side effects in some HIV medication with grapefruit.I take Sustiva, Epivir and Viread, daily. Is it safe to take this Vitamin Suplement. Thanks in advance. Ignacio
