My father has kidney & prostate problems. Is taking kidney & prostate medicine every day. My uncle recommend him to take fortigen Powder as he always complaints his knee pain. can he take Fortigen Powder ? Any side effect ? Thanks.
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.
