It doesn't seem to be mentioned on the pack as a problem, though if your liver is already impaired then caution is required.In your position I would speak to my breast cancer nurse. If one has not been allocated to you then any of the major breast charities would, I'm sure, give you guidance.

Hi Happy Rosie.I will call my cancer nurses tomorrow. Never thought of that. First thing as always that comes in my mind is the cancer has spread.

Thank for that. Hope you are well.
