I can't offer any suggestions on either of the drugs since I have not taken them. I'm currently deciding between phase II trial called daniciclib or compassionate ipilimumab. I am currently taking dietary supplements …they are very good but when on a clinical trial please be careful which ones you would be taking. For instance, if I start ipilimumab, this is what I need to do with the supplements.
Apple Boost – I can continue to take.
Vitamin D3 – I can continue to take
CoQ10: should stop (interaction that could stop effectiveness)
Cod LIver Oil: should stop (risk to have bleeding due to lowering platelets)Probiotic 15-35: NOTumeric Extract with bioperine: NO*Always check with your doctors when starting trials.In the meantime, while I am not on any drugs I take all of the above.Your mother I am sure greatly appreciates all that you do for her.
