Sorry this question has not been answered earlier for you.
I have done some research and could find no reason why you could not use a tanning bed.

I am a gleevac patient, I have found that the sun helps boost energy, but haven't tried a tanning bed. Still fighting depression symptoms even tough been in remission 10+ years by taking it. My doctors have said nothing about avoiding sun, only things I have found in research is that over exposure to sun can cause Cancer. Ha! But at this point is there an upside to it. If it helps you feel better and makes you happy, even though I'm not a medical person, I have been thinking seriously in tryin it.
