Smoked for 35 yrs. stopped in 2007...Bad genes also...look good on outside but not so good on inside......life goes on....
Hello - I have been taking Truvada for 4 months now and recently discovered this group who seems to be concerned about the interactions of this medication with other herbal supplements, such as Milk Thistle. I would love to find out from each one of you what's your input about this. Thank you!
