I use both metformin and desloratadine for their potential anti cancer properties. My primary care, who is an Osteopath, prescribes them for me. She was hesitant when I first brought it up, but when she did her research she felt that since their side effects are so minimal it was worth trying them. So far I've had no adverse effects.
I've also just started taking DIM, with her approval, in lieu of an aromatase inhibitor. I tried the AI's, but the side effects were too severe for me to continue.
Do they work to prevent a cancer reoccurrence? Who knows. But for me it's worth giving it a shot.
