Collagen drinks + Atripla
« on: Yesterday at 10:54:07 PM »
Hi guys, Im new to the forum here. Would like to ask the potential interactions as I have been taking collagen drinks awhile with atripla. I hear reports that gingko biloba (which is present in my collagen drink) might interact with the efavirenz component in atripla and might make my treament fail. I wont be seeing my doctor for another few months. So I decided to stop drinking it.

I decided I might as well change to another collagen brand drink which contains:
-hydrolyzed marine collagen
-Vit C
-Grape juice
-Apple juice

Any potential interactions with this product? :o

Welcome to the forums. If I ever have questions like you have I ask the pharmacy to answer them, they are trained and have a data base that list interactions.

If that is not an option and you can live without the drink I would not drink any thing with supplements until you have checked with your doctor.
