Hi - I'm sorry, we can't advise you on drug interactions/safety here. This is a question you'd need to ask your doctor. It's always a good idea, when you're taking breast cancer drugs, to ask your doctor about adding any over-the-counter remedies, as some of them can interfere with your prescribed drugs. Good luck, and sorry we can't be of more help to you. PJH
