Atripla & Bentonite Clay
Feb 28, 2012

I take Atripla treatment for HIV, and am advised by a friend to try Bentonite Clay to help keep my stomach settled. Is it safe to use Bentonite Clay with Atripla? Thanks, Cinn

Response from Dr. Fawcett

HIV medications need good absorption to work properly. I would be concerned that something like Bentonite clay would interfere with that process. There is the potential for dangerous interaction with many natural and herbal remedies. By all means discuss this with your physician.
