Pancreatic chemo doc and pharmacist warning not to take herbs or antioxidant supplements.  When I look up different sources, coQ10, gingko, lingzhi are all good and should help patient to cope with the side effects and protect liver.  With many information suggesting usage levels, interactions found with different drugs, and other blood pressure medications such as water pills, I like to ask someone if okay to taking 300 mg of coQ10 and 180mg Gingko A day?

Although many cancer patients use nutritional supplements (see http://www.lef.org/protocols/cancer/alternative_cancer_therapies_01.htm Wink and Forum members may have their own opinions on the subject, Life Extension recommends that one follow one's physician's advice.
