Whey & ARVs
Feb 3, 2013
Can you have this -- http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/whey.html
Or any one from this list -- http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/top50.htm
My ARVs are Lami/Zido and Efav
Can I take any of those powders without encountering any organ problem or issues with co administration with ARV?
Response from Dr. Henry
There is little to no data studying long term ssfety and effeicacy of whey protein in HIV+ persons and their interaction with particular HIV medications. I have had numerous patients take whey protein on regimens similar to yours with no obvious harm-long term benefit from patient perspective has been mixed. Many used for a while and then decided to quit using after initial apparent benefit seem to wane and they were tired of spending the money. KH
