Can I use traditional medicine while I’m on treatment?
Thanks for getting in touch.
When we give information about possible interactions between ARVs and medication, this is related to medication that isn’t traditional. To know if it’s possible to take traditional medication with your ARVs you’d need to discuss this with your doctor as they are likely to know the local context.
Our advice would be not to use traditional whilst on ARVs as we don’t have enough data to say if they’ll be an interaction or not.
