People use supplements, like vitamins, minerals, and herbs, because the vitamins and minerals are needed by the body and herbs have substances in them that are useful in treating diseases. Of course, not all herbs are useful and not all are good for all diseases. People also use alternatives to prescription drugs because they usually have less side effects and less serious side effects than prescription drugs. Taking supplements along with prescription is a bit risky. Herbs can interfere the intended action of the drug or interact in other ways with drugs. Before taking a prescription drug with an herb, always talk to a medical professional.

It's very important to talk with your doctor before you take any vitamin and mineral pills, especially if you take prescription medicines, have any health problems or are elderly.familydoctor.org

If you can't get your complete answer from your pharmacist or the manufacturer then call your doctor's office and get the information from your doctor. No one can predict what the side effects would be on you not knowing your condition or how much was prescibed or how your body will react to the drug. Sometimes drugs can interact with other drugs and you can get symptoms from drug interactions. So it is wise to tell your pharmacist what drugs, over the counter drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements you take.

I have a patient now who has to take thyroid pills for the rest of his life because he burned his thyroid out taking bodybuilding drugs.
