I currently take 1 120mg ginko biloba/day and was considering adding glucosamine and chondroitin. While I haven't found any interactions online, will they interact or cause problems? They both seem to have cautions about taking them with blood thinners (although I'm not taking any) so I don't want to take any chances.

Thanks for the query

There are no known adverse drug reactions between the two drugs. You can take these supplements together. Even with blood thinners it's a relative contraindication and not an absolute one.

I hope I have answered your query, if there are no further queries please accept my answer

I wish you good health
