Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!So sorry that Chichi has cancer and now has an upset stomach. The primary side effects of this supplement are reduced ability to clot and lowering blood pressure although any new supplement or medication can cause gi upset if he is sensitive to itThings to do for now:- Discontinue the mushrooms - Pepcid 10 mg 1/8 tablet every 12 hours for 3-5 days to settle the stomach- If vomiting please withhold food x 6 hours- Begin small more frequent meals of white rice and lean boiled meat to settle the stomach but also be bulking to the stoolIf things progress well then possibly reintroduce the mushroom a week after symptoms subside at half the dose and see if he is more amenable to this supplement if you chose to continuePlease let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask!
