PAX Immune booster p- any thoughts?
« on: March 17, 2012, 03:31:25 PM »
In thinking of ways to boost my CD4 level, I have come across quite a bit of literature about PAX Immune booster. Seems it was used before HAART with some interesting success.
I happen to be in NYC this weekend and see that it is carried at one CVS store. Before I invest, any thoughts? Any contraindications with ARV's?

Are you talking about K-Pax ?

If so,  the same ingredients can be had at NY Buyers club for less than half the price

I used it for a while,  didn't change my numbers at all,  but I did feel better.  Could have been the placebo effect though.

Cojo,

I've moved your thread into the Nutrition forum. K-Pax is a nutritional supplement and therefore the Nutrition forum is the more appropriate place for your questions.

There are quite a few threads in this forum concerning K-Pax. Without looking them up to refresh my memory, I'm sure I remember the general consensus where K-Pax is concerned is that it's over-priced and not worth it. A regular multivitamin tab will do the same thing at a lower price.

I know I certainly wouldn't waste my money on K-Pax.

Thanks Ann - that was my suspicion as well. Just wanted to check it out here before investing. As always, your advice is well taken and always appreciated! I think one of the posters refererred to you as our "den mother" - I agree, with all doe affection of course :)

Yea, I agree with Ann.  I am a fan of Vitamin Supplements and K-Pax did not overly impress me with value.  If my memory serves, in some cases, they had some mineral/s in their multi packs that most others do not.  But still, you could add that mineral and still spend considerably less. 
Good luck!
