Re: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Tatezi's Update
- Hi Tatezi
sorry to hear you have been having so many problems. I would be very very
careful about mixing herbs with the drugs. Have you given your hep doc a
complete list of herbs the chinese doc is giving you to see if they are OK?
It would be a shame if you went through all this just to find out that the
herbs had cancelled out any good the drugs were doing, or worse still that a
reaction occurs between the two that causes more problems than you have
already. please talk to your hep do!
