No: There shouldn't be any problem with you taking those supplements. Just make sure your physician is aware. We need to know what patients are taking!

Supplements: I am not sure what is clearing up in your gums without knowing how they were before, however, before starting any supplement regimen you should consult with your dr to determine safe and effective dosage as well as what you are atempting to achieve by using the supplements.
