Synephrine and capsicum with HIV meds

Apr 5, 2013

Is there some interaction between these substances and efavirenz, lamivudine and tenofovir? What about kidney or liver toxicity?

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. I am unaware of any specific studies regarding possible interaction with synephrine or capsicum. Always discuss any supplements with your healthcare provider. You can also find a very good resource on supplements and HIV here.

Take care, David
