RE: Is L-carnitine a good weight loss supplement

Question

Regarding the article called Is L-carnitine a good weight loss supplement. I'm very interested in taking L-Carnitine as a supplement for weight loss. My doctor told me that it was not convenient for me as the meds of my ART are synthesized by the liver, taking L-Carnitine could lead to my meds to fail. Is this correct?

Answer

There are no known interactions between carnitine and HIV medications.
