A member asked:

Have horrible flu-like symptoms after twinrix vac. 2 days ago. can i take charcoal to ease symptoms/ will it lessen effectiveness of vac?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

No: This vaccine is generally administered in 3 doses to immunize against hep a and b simultaneously. Flu-like symptoms are not generally seen, and suspect you may simply have a flu-like illness simultaneously. Whether charcoal will ease your symptoms is problematic, but it should not affect the efficacy of the vaccine.
