Any 6MP Tips out there?

Good Evening,

I've been doing 6MP for three weeks. Luckily, aside from a sore throat and some very light nausea, I've been feeling ok. Do any of you for whom this has been a successful treatment have any tips as to what to eat or how to excercise or fluid intake that might give this medicine the best chance? Thank you for your time.

I am Not on 6mp yet. Make sure they check your bloods regularly and also ask for tpmt genetic test to make sure you can tolerate the drug. If you "fail" or have mutant alleles you have a big chance of liver toxicity. Some drs based on what I read start doses low without this test. That was old way of doing things before this test or when test is not available from your lab and Dr has no choice like in certain cities/countries.
