Would it be safe to take cataplex b while taking arimidex (anastrozole)?

Would it be safe to take cataplex b while taking arimidex (anastrozole)?

Unknown: There should not be interactions between cataplex b (vitamin B6 and b12) and arimidex. However, there may be a role for b vitamins in cancer growth. In a nov 18, 2009 jama article, vitamin B12 and folate supplementation increased death from cancer. Some anti-cancer drugs work by blocking folate, part of the b vitamin pathway.

My ALB/GLOB Ratio has been at 0.9 on my last 3 blood tests. I take Arimidex (anastrozole). Could this medication be the cause of a low number?

My ALB/GLOB Ratio has been at 0.9 on my last 3 blood tests. I take Arimidex (anastrozole). Could this medication be the cause of a low number?

Not low number: Hi. Most commonly, the low albumin:globulin ratio is NOT due to low albumin, but rather due to elevated globulin (so being the denominator, brings the ratio DOWN).
