As far as I remember it is a bad idea, because the massive vitamin doses may counteract the chemo. But, I may misremember. You should check with your onc.

It's definitely an interesting idea but it seems like a bad idea given all of the metabolic changes that take place during chemotherapy. Variations in electrolytes like magnesium can be life-threatening for sure. Just my two cents!
