Can you call your doctor's office and ask a nurse about it, or talk to your doctor privately? Anything to do with medications and interactions is something your doctor's GOT to know about, sweetie, and your heart is not something to take chances with. You NEED TO GET THIS CLEARED UP IMMEDIATELY. I can't stress that enough.
Who prescribed you the pill? You can talk to them, too.
Are you getting both prescription filled out by the same pharmacy? If so your pharmacist should tell you if there is any possible interaction. I agree with lemming about speaking to the doctors who prescribed both medicatons to you but I also think it is wise to consult your pharmacist as they are trained and should constantly be keeping track of medications and how they can interact.
