Brief Answer: yes. you can take. monitor Liver function. Detailed Answer: Hi, thanks for using HCM. I went through the query and understood your concern. Yes. These two are considered as neutraceuticals and you can take both as there are no studies showed any significant drug interaction between the two. The efficacy when you take both may be helpful. You need to monitor you liver function regularly as there are no good studies which have already proved about safety when both drugs have been taken and also lipid levels to check for efficacy. Also along with the above drugs you are required to continue life style modifications like regular exercises and diet. These will help you. I hope these information helps you. Feel free to ask if any further queries and I will be glad to answer them. Wish you good health. Regards
