Hi
I have been having acupunture and taking Chinese herbal tablets for about 3 months
I start TX in 2 weeks and intend to continue the acupunture to help with any side effects but dont know whether it is safe to carry on with the herbal tablets
Can anyone help?

Hi Julie

I was told not to do Chinese herbs/ tablets while cycling. I just took them before I started my cycle.
Hope this helps, but please check with your Chinese doctor.

Hi Julie

I too have been taking Chinese herbs (fresh stuff that you boil up - and taste disgusting!) along with acupuncture.  I will continue with the acupuncture during my tx, but have been advised not to take the herbs as they can interfere with the drugs working properly.  I start my tx next week, so will stop the herbs in the next few days before starting the d/r.

Good luck with your tx!

Love Alison xxx

thanks carole and alison

you are right - dont want anything to interfere with the treatment
Also the thought of maybe feeling sicky and having to swallow those little black pills! Uck!
Good luck alison I start about 3rd July so not far behind you
