    Tell your health care provider about all the medicines you are taking including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.  Some medicines may affect how Cancidas works or Cancidas may affect how your other medicines work.  Be sure to tell your health care provider if you take tacrolimus (Prografฎ) or medicines called antivirals.
