In brief: Yes, but...
The main ingredients of complementary pills are saw palmetto, pygeum, bee pollen, vitamins, zinc, selenium, lycopene, etc.
Despite distributed under different brand names. Their effects have been marginal at best, and not well studied and documented. So, i would not openly advise their use. Detail? Ask doc timely.
