Is it OK to use muscle gain powder?
I have been taking Atripla since September and wanted to know if I could take muscle and weight gain powder shakes as I go to the gym and would like to increase my muscle tone. Is it safe to use while taking my medicines?
Generally, yes. Protein powders are fine to use, but follow the instructions that are included on the pack (ie do not rely on them as a food substitute).
The main caution with body-building supplements is with creatine which will affect the kidney monitoring test results and steroids which are not recommended.
Always let your doctor and pharmacist know of any supplements that you want to use.
