As long as all of the medications that you are taking are prescribed by the same doctor or if they are not, at least each doctor knows about the other and the medications that each have you on, then it is ok. If you are seeing different doctors and they don't know about eachother and the meds that you are on, then you need to let them know so that they can be in touch with eachother and they don't prescribe something to you that can interact with another medicine that you are on. It is VERY IMPORTANT that all of your doctors know about every other doctor that you see and the medications that they all have you on. Good luck to you! :)
