i've been taking natural vitamins and herbs also zeolite w/dhq will this affect the way tarceva should work?
Sorry I haven't answered before now. I just saw your question. I can only tell you what my oncologist told me about vitamins and herbs while on chemo. Your chemo is an oxidant. Many of these vitamins and herbs are antioxidants, so they will decrease the potency of your chemo and make it less effective. Of course, some vitamins are not antioxidants, but your doctor can tell you which are safe to take with your chemo. Don't go on what the natural food store or pharmacy tells you. They are in the business of sales. Check with your doctor or with the manufacturer of Tarceva. I hope everything goes well for you.
