Should I tell my doctor if I am taking tribulus?

ANSWER

Be sure to tell your doctor about any supplements you're taking, even if it's natural. That way, your doctor can check on any potential side effects or interactions with medications, foods, or other herbs and supplements. He can let you know if the supplement may be risky for you.
