Brief Answer:
The prescribed medicines are vitamins with antioxidants.

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome.
I can understand your concern for the role of the prescribed medications.

1. Ubiq Q 100 tablet (Ubidecarenone, Selenium, Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate and Arginine) is a vitamin supplement with anti oxidants given for heart disease, asthma, migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome & male infertility.

2. Ubicar tablet (Ubidecarenone + L-Carnitine) is a combination of vitamin & antioxidant with multiple functions in the body including the spermatogenesis (production of the sperms).

Hope this answers your query.
Best regards.

Brief Answer:
Take them separately

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome back.
Thanks for your query.

Since one of the contents (Ubidecarenone) is found in both the tablets, so take them separately or as advised by your treating physician.

Hope this helps.

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
