Fat Burner
Nov 14, 2012

i'm on nevirapine, tenofir and lamivudine but i'm putting on so much weight especially my lower tummy can i use fat burner slimming tea? will it interact with my drugs?

Response from Dr. Henry

I am skeptical about the actual long term benefit of many of the fat burning products (including teas) on the market --most claims are not backed up by data from well designed independent studies. That being said I generally would not be worried about a drug interaction with your HIV regimen though I would inform your HIV provider of what you are trying to she/he can monitor. KH
