Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Myrin P is a antitubercular combination of antibiotics. The food supplements you are planning to take might induce the liver enzymes or interact with the antibiotics you are taking thus decreasing the efficacy of the treatment. You should not combine these food supplements with your present treatment unless prescribed by your physician.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
