Recently I posted some info I found from Mayo on glutamine and possible side-effects. I've been trying to find a solution for the problems my husband has had on Folfox, including pretty nasty stomach distress. Went to a web-site called Drugs.com and put in the different medications he is on trying to see if there was a drug interaction problem. In fact, the website said that the chemo and nauseau medicines could be contra-indicated with his dilantin, raising dilatin serum levels and contibuting to his nauseau, constipation and como-like tiredness for several days following chemo. Brought this up with his doctor and he is sending Mart to a neurologist to change seizure medicines. So this issue may have NOT been with the glutamine, not sure yet. I worried some people with my posting and thought I should update. Hopefully we have found the problem with the dilantin, because the folfox is working well for him - his CA-19 dropped since a high-point of 1200+ on gemzar, to the latest of 252.

Didn't want to scare anyone off the glutamine or folfox, so wanted to attempt to update the situation. The interaction checker on Drugs.com is a great tool for anyone taking multiple medications.
