atripla and cvs horny goat weed
Oct 14, 2013

there is a brief touch on this subject but I guess the question is...I am a very healthy 56 year old undectable guy and was told about horny goat week..but never missed a daily pill once and never added anything to my regime...but would like to know if safe at all t hx

Response from Dr. Henry

Little to no published data in HIV+ . Active ingredient may be elated to sildenafil (Viagra). Efivirenz in Atripla may have a drug interaction with Viagra (decrease Viagra levels). Most of claims about horny goat weed are unsubstantiated. KH

Swollen gland
