Thanks for writing to us.

I can understand your anxiety.

Mogadon is a good anti-anxiety agent and can be safely used with chemotherapy cycles.

It is better if you inform your treating doctor about the simultaneous use of mogadon as it might increase the metabolism of chemotherapeutic drugs slightly by inducing the liver enzymes.

The treating doctor will then adjust the doses accordingly.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.

Wishing you good health.
