There is no particular set of rules but here are a few suggestions
Thanks for writing.
I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.
There is no particular guid line about usage of these medication but yes according to input my patients some recommendations can be made.
Tamoxifen can be used at any time your doctor suggests mostly people use it in morning.
Now regarding supplements.
There are a few supplements which cause GIT supset like diarrhea cramping to the user if there is something which causes this then you better use it with the heaviest meal you take.
Mostly it is recommended to take a good breakfast so such med is taken with breakfadt preferably half way down the breakfast this causes reduction in the side effects.
Vitamin Combo is advised to be taken with a fact containing meal as many vital vitamins like A,D,E,K are absorbed with fat so meal having hat helps absorption, best and healthy say is to have a good healthy salad and pour one tea spoon of olive oil in it and after eating that salad take your multi vitamin.
Fish oil is better taken at night. There is no reason to it but it is postulsted that fish oil helps raising good cholesterole and as liver makes cholesterol at night so good cholesterol helps controlling the bad one.Although a theory with no current scientific evidence but there is no harm in taking fish oil at night in my opinion.
In the end I will say that there is no particular rule which has o
to be followed strictly but few tips which i gave you can help you get better benefit out of your treatment. Always remember supplement can never compete natural so have a good balanced diet which provides natural minerals and vitamins as well this will indeed help you stay healthier better than you would do with only supplements.
I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.
