It doesn't matter: when you take homeopathic "medicine" since it doesn't do anything. If you are trying to treat a problem for which your doctor has prescribed actual medication, you should follow up with that doctor if you think you may need different or additional treatment.

Check with your DR. Some OTC products may alter the way Rx meds are absorbed. May be protein bound,etc.

I agree. Always a good idea. A true homeopathic remedy is harmless since it's just water and maybe a little ethanol, but some homeopathic remedies aren't truly homeopathic and contain other ingredients that might be a problem.
