Hello,
Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Fenugreek is a safe supplement and can be taken with the drugs you listed.
Only when consumed in very high quantities ( some mothers to increase milk secretion take 7-8 capsules per day ), it may lead on to side effects.
Apart from that, it has blood glucose lowering effect so should be safely taken with oral hypoglycemics like Glipizide, Metformin, e.t.c
Feel free to discuss further,
Regards.


Patient replied :

how about tongkit ali. Is it safe to take this with h the medicines I mentioned


Yes Tongkat Ali is safe if taken in prescribed amounts. It has no interactions with the medicines you mentioned.
Make sure you go through the instructions carefully.
Both the drugs you mentioned indirectly can boost up testosterone, hence never overdose.
Regards.
