How does ilex 15 interact with HIV medications?
Ilex 15 contains licorice (liquorice). Adverse reactions to licorice (liquorice) reported amongst HIV-positive people include: low potassium levels, muscle weakness and soreness, high blood pressure and fluid retention.
Additionally, as with many common health foods / nutritional supplements / natural remedies (such as grapefruit juice, aloe vera, borage oil, DHEA, ginko, St John's wort, milk thistle and valerian), there is a theoretical risk of an adverse interaction between anti-HIV drugs and licorice (liquorice).
If you are HIV-positive and thinking about taking Ilex 15 (or any other supplement) it is very important that you first speak to your doctor / pharmacist.

Well, usually average of 25- 35years.
I have been diagnosed by Western doctors as having bipolar disorder, and I have been taking various meds over the years. I am also a meditator, with fifteen years experience. …I can tell you, with no hesitation, that meditation is *fantastic* for people with a higher energy state. In my view, both the manic phases of bipolar and ADHD are examples of this state. As a person learns to watch the mind, feelings, and physical sensations, s/he gains the ability to catch inappropriate or harmful behaviors in the first instants that they arise. One gains the ability to see things as they come up, *before* one acts on them, so one has more choices as to how to move in the world. Also, meditation has been shown in many studies to induce calming effects on various sections of the nervous system. I would suggest finding a meditation which feels right, and going for it.

If the question is about stopping your medication completely, then the virus will will quickly come back to high levels. Then your CD4 count will fall. Over a few weeks, your …viral load and CD4 count would be back to where it was when you first started treatment. If the question is about missing some doses of medication, then the risk is that you develop resistance to your meds. You need good levels of all the drugs to fight HIV effectively. When you are late with a dose, or if you miss it completely, the virus can develop resistance. Resistance is where the structure of HIV changes a little so the drugs no longer work.
Grapefruit is the only one that I have found....but call your pharmacist to be sure....but don't eat grapefruit or drink it's juice. It can cause the medicine to build u…p in your system and then you get too much and become more susceptible to serious side effects.

Tangerine and other citrics have been in some testing to see if they facilitate the uptake of medication.. Such as grapefruit said to be used in facilitating faster abso…rption of opiates etc.. None of this has been proven to do anything except small amounts of absorption rate increase. Although I am not totaly familiar with tangerine and its effects on absorption or blocking there isnothing written that states it willcause any adverse reactions. Tangerine is mildI doubt there is anything it will do to any medication..
Answer The regulations affecting the ability of HIV-positive to work in the medical professions vary greatly from country to country. As a general rule, the…re is no reason why an HIV-positive person should not be able to pursue a career in a medicine; although they should normally expect to be prevented from working in certain high-risk areas and carrying out high-risk or invasive procedures.

A study at Cornell University projected that the costs average monthly is about $2,100 for medication, with an average lifetime payout toward the disease summing up to nearly …$619,000 (This cost is spread across a 24+ year expected lifespan depending on how far along the HIV is). This information may be a bit dated though as it was presented in early 2007.

This is an actual example of evolution.Evolution counts on the fact that there are genetic differences inindividuals of a species. Evolution also says that the environmentsele…cts for those individuals best suited for that environment. Inthe case of the HIV virus or other microbes, if their environmenthas medication in it, (which we hope will destroy them) but if afew survive because they have genes that allow them to, they willflourish in this medicated environment. They will become resistant.That medication can't be used again. This is one reason not to usemedication unless really needed.
