This is Dr. David

I am a radiation oncology doctor.

alternative agents like black seed oil are not well studied with radiation and chemo pills like xalkori

best to let your radiation oncology doctor and medical oncologist know you are taking this

they may or may not want you to take it at this point.

they may want you to take some dexamethasone steroid therapy before and after your focused radiation treatments to the brain.

if you are taking dexamethasone, make sure you take it with food in your stomach.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today
