1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

Siberian ginseng can inhibit the metabolism of ace inhibitors (such as ramipril) -- making it build up in your system and possibly cause your blood pressure to be too low.
One review also suggested siberian ginseng could inhibit metabolism of some antidepressants. You would not want either of these results!
