    Hello Leigh,

    You have already taken the vaccine? Please ask your Pharmacist about the drug interactions! Keep in mind that we each have 'unique' symstems & hopefully the vaccines do Not interfere w/ your meds. Write down the date you took it & watch for anything 'unusual' for you. Keep a Daily Journal for the next couple of weeks. Chek under Tips for Journal Info to include.

    I hope this helps. Hugs!

    Love Candi
