Will drinking vinegar affect my meds?
Jan 13, 2013
I recently tested HIV positive with a very low CD4 count of 8. I am now on ARVs. What surprised me is that despite my low count, where you are supposed to have died or be critically ill, I am healthy without any sickness. I add white vinegar to all water I drink. Could my habit of using vinegar affect my medications? From Zimbabwe.

Thanks for writing. I'll repost a response here from Nelson Vergel about vinegar. I always advise consulting with one's physician about the impact of supplements on medications.
