Not in the list of meds to avoid on the Harvoni package inset you should receive with every prescription. Here is a link if you tossed yours.

http://www.gilead.com/~/media/Files/pdfs/medicines/liver-disease/harvoni/harvoni_pi.pdf

Most of us avoided any med we did not have to take so to not risk any interference with our treatment especially as treatment is if such short duration. Also they could not possibly anticipate all the meds a patient might want to take while taking Harvoni.

The best person to ask would be the doctor who prescribed you Harvoni or your pharmacist.

Good luck with treatment
