Thank you for your questions.

From your explanation, I understand your concerns regarding the effect of taking the supplement food which is the Fortigen powder since your father is also taking other medication prescribed by the hospital.

To be honest, it is difficult for me to give a definite answer of yes or no because further information is needed. Furthermore, since it is a supplement food so, there’s no information on drug-drug interaction between it and other medication. On top of that, since your father have kidney problem, this will greatly affect the metabolism of the supplemet he took.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information that we have. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your doctor to find out the answer you wanted. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online.
