In brief: Probably

Just be aware that ingesting any substance has risks.
The risks associated with these meds are well studied and small, but have to be balanced against the reasons for taking them daily. Are they being taken for concrete reasons (they help with daily pain) or theoretical reasons (you think they help prevent future problems). If it's the latter, discuss with your doctor. They can help sort it out.
