Questions And Answers on Taking Antiretrovirals
Is it safe to take antiretrovirals with other medications?
Many medications, including antiretrovirals, can possibly interact with other agents, including prescription
medications, over-the-counter medications, some herbal preparations, nutritional supplements, and even certain vitamins
and minerals. Interactions can sometimes leadto decreased medication effectiveness, increased risk of side effects, or
both. Therefore, make sure your physician or pharmacist has a complete list of all the drugs and naturopathic or herbal
remedies you are taking, and check with your pharmacist before beginning any new product.
