Coenzyme Q10 with chemotherapy?


Question from Solo: My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer with liver metastases. She is currently on chemotherapy with Herceptin. I wanted her to start on Coenzyme Q10, however I was told that it would not be a good idea. What's your take on this and any other alternative treatments being used with chemotherapy?
Answers - Raymond Chang Coenzyme Q10 is not a traditional Chinese medicine although it has some Asian connections. I do not advocate its use with chemotherapy; but again, this is not Chinese medicine so I cannot comment further.
