The Drug Interaction Checker, did not show any potential interactions between these medications.  No interactions found, however, does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.  Only your doctor knows your full medical history including all medications including over-the-counter meds and dietary supplements as well as all of your health issues. It's simply not safe for anyone other than your doctor to say "Yes" or "No" to this question.
