I started taking a vitamin high in antioxidants about 9days

Customer Question

I started taking a vitamin high in antioxidants about 9days ago. I am being treated with radiation therapy and found out that the supplement could cause too much antioxidants to form in the system. How do I go about flushing the system to reduce or neutralize the anti oxidant level. I am treated on a 5 day week schedule and still have 28 of 38 to go.
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: Did my question not go through?
JA: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?
Customer: Just found out information on vitamin today and no I have not
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: The radiation is for prostate cancer and this is where the problem should be if anything arises.
