Is it safe to use oral rehydration salts (electrolyte) when on Nilotnib?
Electrolytes in sachet.
Best to ask your doctor. People here can offer advice but you should be asking the CML specialist you see. Sometimes a phone call is all you need to make.
Like Dioralyte? That kind of thing? No particular problems with those.
Yes. Like Dioralyte. I read somewhere "sodium citrate" in Dioralyte reduce Nilotnib absorption? Is that true?
Are you talking about taking them occasionally, to keep hydrated through a bout of diarrhea or something? Or more habitual usage?
occasionally. Probably once in 2 months for re-hydration.
Check with your doctor if you're at all concerned, but its hard to see a problem with that.
