ctbeth responded:
Always check with your MD and/ or Registered Pharmacist if you have questions about your meds.

I'm an RN and I'd suspect that they are safe to take together, but neither ,I nor an internet search, should replace your MD or RP.

Best wishes.

I totally agree with Beth. I always make sure to tell my pharmacist ALL the drugs I am on, RX and OTC. Nowadays, with patients asking for better or cheaper care, they may get drugs from more than one pharmacist.

I love my pharmacists, they do good things for me, including one who actually read studies for me, about my problems.

I prefer one doctor to write all my RXs, but in my case that is fairly easy. Make certain ALL your doctors know about ALL your meds.

Remind them every time one gets out a RX pad, or gets on the computer and prints out a RX for you.

Take care, Annette

Hi Gracie,

I'm just heading out with my Nathaniel and his Michelle.

I'll be home by about 8 PM.

You have my email address and, if you'd rather have a phone chat, send me your number and I'll ring you later this evening.

I hope you're having a nice holiday.
