Response from Dr. McGovern

I think the main issue is to discuss any alternative medications you are taking with your primary care provider. You should always be monitored in case any medication - no matter prescription or non-prescription - begins to cause you side effects or laboratory abnormalities. Also sometimes there could be a drug interaction that you may not be aware of.
