Q: Ginkgo and CoQ10 with Plavix and Aspirin for PAD

Can a person with PAD take CoQ10, Ginkgo Biloba with Plavix and aspirin.  My husband has minor PAD, but had read that Ginkgo may help.  Last year he had open heart surgery, does have normal bp, and is taking Lipitor to lower his cholesterol from 201 to below.  His LDL is 113 and HDL is 76.  Thanks for your assistance or suggestions.  We walk daily and play tennis swim etc..but the leg pain seems to stay around a 3 in a 1-5 scale.Thanks again,Sandy

I have had some toe circulation problems when taking coQ10 with Plavix and Aspirin.  My toes turn red and swell slightly.  Hair loss on lower legs and back of hands.
