Atripla and Herbal Tea (Teatino)
Sep 24, 2010

Dr. Henry,

First of all many thanx for all you help through this site. It means a lot to a lot of us.

Now, i am currently on atripla, doing good cd4 500s VL undetec......

i have started drinking a herbal tea called Teatino Lemon (from Omnilife). Its a thermogenic tea which has the following ingredients: chromium polynicotinate, aspartame, maltodextrin, fructose, camelia sinesis black tea extract, citric acid and natural tea flavoring.

I wanted to know if there would be any negative interactions between these ingredients and Atripla.

Thank you very much!

Response from Dr. Henry

I would not expect any significant problems with that tea product and your Atripla. KH

I want to enroll in your START program
