Am interested in taking herbal supplements a along with Carboplatin chemotherapy treatment and my Oncologist said certain hebs can interfere with the effectiveness of the chemo. Possibly negate the effects. Was wondering if anyone has any more info on these two drugs taken together ( the Carboplatin and Turmeric). I am also considering some Mushroom Kings and Artemax. Thanks for any input.
The interactions checker came up with no known interaction; that is not saying there isn't one. It is critically important that your oncologist is aware of all pills or supplements that you are taking, as many fruits and vegetables can have some really unexpected effects on medication absorption and metabolism.
