Hi, I am on Epivir and Kaletra. Is it safe to have the diet supplements below?

- epivir, kaletra, vitamins, multivitamin
I am thinking of taking the following diet supplements:
1. Multivitamins - One per Day tablets (Life Extension)
2. Fish oil- Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract (Life Extension) http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Item01483/Super-Omega-3-EPA-DHA-with-Sesame-Lignans-Olive-Fruit-Extract.html
Is it safe to take those supplements considering that I am healthy? I know I must ask my doctor but I also would like a second opinion. Do you think it would be good to include L-glutamine in the supplements (http://www.thebody.com/content/living/art16945.html)?

It appears that no drug interaction exists between the drugs you take now and the supplements you wish to take - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist first.
It would be worth taking a glutamine supplement as your illness can deplete glutamine levels.
