There are no clinical studies that prove the effectiveness of cat’s claw capsules and olive leaf extract, in the management of HIV.

I would not suggest my patient to use them, so will I, for you.

The cause for the yellow stools could be a recent intestinal infection- bacterial or viral.

My suggestions to you:

-     Stop using these natural capsules.

-     Report to your primary treating doctor about the yellow stools.

-     A course of the antibiotic Cotrimoxazole may help you best (If you are not allergic to it). Get the antibiotic prescribed by your doctor as well.

Get well soon.

Take care.
