I would like to ask if i can take protein (whey protein) with Eviplera?

Answer

Hi,

You should be cautious with this. There is evidence that taking whey protein regularly can lead to kidney damage.

Tenofovir is one of the drugs in Eviplera. This can also sometimes affect kidney function. For that reason it might be safer to not use the protein and Eviplera together.

As a general rule it is good to be cautious when thinking about taking supplements while you are on HIV medication. This is because these may have interactions with your meds. It can also sometimes be difficult to work what is actually in supplements. This in turn can make it difficult to work out if they would affect your treatment.
