Thanks for the query
The dangers are that theer might be decreased absorption of the drug particles due to cross reaction. However if u want to take supplements u can have a healthy diet and take Vit B complex everymorning after food
I am not too sure as to why aloe vera was stopped for u. Ask the doctor who has stopped the medications
I am happy u r taking anto retroviral medicines

Have a healthy life
