The general recommendation is to discontinue unprescribed supplements while on treatment to avoid potential untested interactions. There are some exceptions to this where there is evidence to support supplementing:

"So if you wanted to take supplements there is evidence around:
B12
Vit D (calcitriol)
Antioxidants like ALA, S-Adenosylmethionine and Betaine because they increase glutathione and probably work to protect B12 levels and JAK-STAT mediated local Interferon production
Statins because they reduce the transporters for the virus in the blood that are essential to getting into liver cells"

I was using a magnesium supplement to help prevent cramps when swimming but they have diminished since I started Tx. I bought some magnesium ointment that goes on the skin and that seems to help. So does half a banana before the swim.
