Trying to stay positive.

Hi all, I read that vitamin c supplements and paw paw leave extract can help improve platelet count, how true is this? Ive started taking Vitamin C (ascorbiz tablets without consulting my Doctor, is this safe to take with Azapress?

I think you should always let your doctor know what else you are taking. We aren't medical professionals, we can't tell you it is safe to take any drugs, prescription or over the counter, in combination with other drugs or in relation to any medical conditions you may have.

Vitamin C and paw paw are some of the 75 or more natural remedies that have been mentioned by members here. Also blueberries and celery and rubbing certain kinds of oil on the skin over your spleen. Ann publishes the whole list now and then.

I agree! I just saw a very good reminder today from the PDSA about the fact that grapefruit (juice) can interact with medications, even causing fatalities. You never know what might cause a negative reaction, even with something as seemingly innocent as grapefruit.
