Hi there. I'm on FOLFOX 6, currently pump connected with my 5th treatment (of 12).
I'm taking all the following supplements with dr's approval:
b-complex - 1xs day
b6 - 100mg (50mg 2xs day)
l-lycine - 1000mg daily (500mg 2xs day)
glutamine - 30grams daily (when I can, 30 is a lot to get in one day, I've made homemade glutamine pills to supplement and it's cheaper than buying in the store)
potassium - 1xs day
the top 4 are for neuropathy. the potassium is for foot and toe cramps which crop up days 1 and 2 of treatment.
since I don't have a baseline, I can't tell you if it's helping with neuropathy but i can tell you that 5 treatments in, it's definitely gotten worse, but worse is relative. it's only cold induced (and "cold" is really not that cold, i can't be in a room under 68 degrees without gloves) BUT it definitely subsides day by day, last time it was completely gone in 10 days but days 7-10 were extraordinarily mild. it doesn't interfere with my daily activities. i do have a feeling it would be worse w/o the supplements, so I gladly toss back sometimes upwards of 30 pills a day (that includes 20+ homemade glutamine).
