homeopathic human growth hormone and inmune enhencer
May 20, 2001

Im on Haart treatment homeopathic human growth hormone and inmune enhencer alternative medicine can be taken with agenerase, sustiva and ziagen in order to increase my energy and stamina. thanks. Interfers with my HAART??

Response from Dr. Young

I don't think that we know for sure, but the use of homeopathic amounts of medications usually does not only not interact with HIV medications, but doesn't have clinical benefit.

Remember, that usless the specific drug-drug interaction has been studied, there cannot be any definative statement about these reactions. We were very surprised to learn about the deleterious effects of St. John's wort on the levels of HIV protease inhibitors. When in doubt, I would approach with caution.
