Hi I’m a ALL patient! I’ve finished my main medication and currently is on maintenance phase, my question is can i take biotin supplement? Will it be harmful for my body to take a biotin supplement pill?
Hi @tahmidmahi it’s good to hear from you.
As for your question, I would say that it is one for your medical team, perhaps your CNS, nurse specialist contact if you have one. It might not be a yes/no answer and you and your medical history might need to be taken into account.
I always think that it is best to check these things out, better safe than sorry.
How have you been?
I’m so close to maintenance phase I’m really excited, hoping it will be much easier.
I’m currently at the end of consolidation and when I asked my Dr about a multivitamin he said no as it is believed by some that certain vitamins and minerals can make chemo less effective so I would definitely recommend you ask your team just in case. Although I can’t see it being a huge issue.
Gosh @nbk112 you must be really excited. Yes, it’s always best to ask isn’t it.
Please let us know how you get on.
