Are cleansing pills ok to take while on bentyl

I just wanted to know is it OK to take cleansing pills (the cleaner 7 day women's formula) while on bentyl 10 mg? The bentyl 10 mg was prescribed by my physician. I'm trying to get in contact with her but it seems she's busy so I just wanted an professional opinion on this.

Hi, as the cleansing pills are not approved by FDA, its difficult to comment on interactions. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) the controlling authority for all medications. If you see all the OTC's and some herbal medications will not have their approval. This is important because, it means that no scientific studies have been conducted for these medications hence interaction with other medications or their side effects would not have been studied. Regards.
