Truvada + Viramune + grapefruit?
Feb 9, 2009

I was wondering if it was ok to eat grapefruit with my drug combination of Truvada and Viramune. I've been searching, but can't find a clear answer. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

To my knowledge grapefruit can lower protease inhibitor levels but is likely OK with nevirapine. Levels can be checked if concern is high. KH
