Hi Nelson, its a pleasure, my question is quite simple, is there any study about the effect either possitive or negative of the nitric oxide in the cd4 and viral load?, or if there is any possible interaction with Atripla?
Thanks in advanced.
Nitric oxide supplements usually contain arginine, citrulline and some sort of stimulant (caffeine or synthetic amphetamines). Increasing nitric oxide is claimed to improve "muscle pump" and vascularity at the gym.
No interaction studies have been done with HIV medications and these supplements.
THere is a risk of increased heart rate with the stimulants. Arginine supplementation is also known to increase the risk of herpes outbreaks.
I would talk to your doctor before using any of these supplements.
