Cats Claw & Atripla
      #262797 - 04/30/12 10:07 PM

I have been researching the Internet and can not really find any information for or against. Has anyone on Atripla tried supplementing treatment with Cats Claw? If so how did it work?

I did a search myself first thing I pulled up was this:
"Because cat’s claw may stimulate the immune system, it is unclear whether the herb is safe for people with conditions affecting the immune system.
Cat’s claw may interfere with controlling blood pressure during or after surgery.
Tell all your health care providers about any complementary and alternative practices you use. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care. For tips about talking with your health care providers."

If you want to risk using something that is "unclear" as the safety of use for people with HIV be my guest. But there are proven methods and foods that can help build your immune system. Btw that was from the NIH a gov agency.
