  • BEP chemo recomandations

    I was under 3xBEP and I was very scarry about ototoxicity and neurotoxicity from cisplatin. I'm analist programmer and electronic music composer and player. After a lot of study I combined BEP chemo with the following antioxidants intake

    Vitamin E 400 - 600 IU / day
    Selenium 300 mcrg / day

    from one week before chemo until 3-4 months after the finish of chemo

    It works very very nice and the other TC chemo young patient , at my suggestion , tried it. It seems to potentate de chemo too.
    [Dont try a dose less than 400 IU/day !!!!]
    My oncologist also tried this combination and she told me that realy works : no or very very less neurotoxicity compared with the other TC patients witch has only BEP alone.
    This combination has become a standard asociation between BEP and antioxidants begining with my case.

    So, I recommend it for all who must undergo BEP or Cisplatin based chemo.

    All the best

    I take Selenium, a super Anti-Oxidant and Vitamin E as well POST BEP X3. I was also taking Pau D'Arco and Cat's claw pre chemo but had to get off these CAMS because Cat's claw is a blood thinner and Pau can affect blood pressure.

    Good luck with your treatment.
