I just had my Tamoxifen refilled and they put a new label on the bottle. Certain Herbal products could alter the affect of this drug.
I go to GNC and get Q10 and Cell Protector. Now I'm afraid that
I should stop taking them.
can you clarify?
thanks so much!
Dear Ann, As more and more people are using various herbs and herbal products, we don't have alot of information about how and if these substances will interact with medications. A good practice is to make sure to keep your doctor informed of any over the counter medications, herbal products or nutritional supplements so if there is some known interaction you can know to avoid it. Another resource is to ask your pharmacist.
In regard to tamoxifen herbal preparations such as black cohosh, or **** quai are to be avoided in estrogen-dependent tumors (this is because of some of the estrogen like properties noted in these products).
