I'm currently in the first cycle of Carboplatin/Taxatore/clinical trial of Velcade for recurrent NSCLC (originally 1A, but odds were not kind to me). I'm giving serious consideration to taking Astragalus as a supplement. My doctor seems largely indifferent on this question. I've read the meta-study that shows some promise (but questions the rigor of some of the Chinese studies). Do others have thoughts? Anyone taking Astragalus?

I have read those studies as well. It was on cisplatine and astragalus. They sounded very encouraging. Astragalus has also activity for breast cancer (plus chemo). My mother is taking it

(with femara). My father was also taking it during his chemo.
