Concerned boyfriend

Dear Queenie,

  My girlfriend takes a lot of supplements that she takes all the time and medicines that she takes when she doesn’t feel well. She bought all these things at the drugstore and over the Internet without a prescription so she thinks they are safe, but I worry that they might not be so safe if they are taken together.

  Queenie, what do you think?—Concerned boyfriend  

Dear Boyfriend,

  I think you are right to be concerned, especially if your girlfriend has any chronic medical condition. She should let her doctor know what products she is taking and follow whatever advice the doctor gives her.
