Dear Laurie252:  One of the challenges of “natural” supplements is that they are not fully researched or regulated.  This can present 2 potential problems.  One is that the fact that there is no regulation means that one can never be certain that what the bottle says is actually what is in the bottle.  The other is that these products have not been researched either for efficacy or for interactions so much of this is unknown.  Our general recommendation is that the use of any supplements be discussed directly with your doctor.  Your pharmacist may be a good resource for providing information as well.
