Most of us are not expert in herbal products so we are less likely helping you with this topic. You can read this link from Cleveland Clinic and decide - https://health.clevelandclinic.org/what-is-ashwagandha/; however, I would advise against using herbal products if you are also taking western medications because the interaction can be deadly at times.
