Probably not: There shouldn't be a problem. However, just because quarterback joe likes it (and gets paid to be a shill for it) doesn't mean it works. I'd talk to my doctor and i'd be very careful about stopping Flomax (tamsulosin) and depending on unproven therapy.

Treatment BPH: There is no danger in using those supplements together the main question is if they are working. I tell my patients that it is not that I do not believe in supplements, but there is no good data to jusfity if they work.
