Just an update regarding supplements. I have stopped the IV Vitamin C since I am starting Zejula tomorrow. I received the OK from the Drug Company Pharmacist for most of the rest. He said there would be no interaction. Since I am feeling so much better taking them and able to walk 5 km every morning, for me it works for now. I have easy access to my oncologist if I have any serious side effects from the Zejula. I just make a phone call and his nurse will call back right away. However, curious about the metformin? Please keep me posted about your experience with Zejula. I start tomorrow at bedtime. I thought that my dose would be 300 mg but I am starting at 200 mg.
Good luck to you too. You are the only one I know who is starting on this also. Nice to have company!
PS: interesting that on Olaparib they start you at the max dose of 300mg 2X day and then reduce by 50mg as symptoms arise that require lowering the dose. Lowest you can go is 200mg 2X day...but, once you go down you're not allowed to go back up. I have a couple of minor things going on that could or could not be related to Olaparib. There's been a suggestion to reduce me from my current 250 to 200. But what a shame if the change does nothing and now I'd be stuck at the lower dose. So opted not to change.
