Atripla and epilobium
Sep 28, 2011

I started on Atripla yesterday. As I sometimes have symptoms of benign enlarged prostate syndrome, I have been drinking 1 to 2 cups of epilobium tea a day on and off for many years. This relieves the symptoms fairly quickly. Can you see any possible interaction between epilobium tea and Atripla?

Response from Dr. Henry

Good question-I couldnt data on drug interaction between epilobium tea and use of Atripla. In general I would have a high level of concern but would monitor for unusual problems or unexpected increase in HIV level. If any reader knows of a published reference please post. KH
