A number of issues about "more" not being better. While the study referred to "high dose," many might call what was offered in that arm to be "subtherapeutic." Also, there were no minerals. The finding of liver elevation is a problem but they also saw reduced neuropathy. This is a poor review and 500 characters is not enough.

What a load of rubbish, who pays for this "Research" no doubt the Drug Companies that have a vested interest in keeping people on toxic drugs. What it shows is Vitamins Really work and the ARVs are not really good for you. We stay on them, however one day Vitamins may hold some of the answers for stooping ARV's.

As a follow-up to this article, it would be helpful to know what 'standard dose multi-vitamins" are--what levels of what vitamins are recommended or standard. Also, if there are herbal meds that are also dangerous or need to be considered. Thanks!

It seems the more I read, the more I realize that the "experts" don't know anything. It's kind of like, avoid eggs, eggs are bad for you, fast forward a decade and it's eat eggs, eggs are good for you. Perhaps we should just listen to our own bodies, and treat accordingly.
