Drinking boost while on harvoni
« on: February 13, 2015, 02:28:40 pm »
So my nurse said it was fine to take boost nutritional drinks while taking harvoni, but I know that with harvoni there is a thing with magnesium. So I read the label today and it said there was 100g/237 mL of magnesium. I am not sure if I should drink it then? Is it a 4 hour rule ? Any help would be great

They are mostly talking about magnesium in antacids but the best person to ask is your doctor and their staff and also support path. Ask you nurse for clarification about the magnesium and just to be safe maybe keep the meds 4 hours apart is my thought.

Good luck on treatment
