I'm 58. Last year I was diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma grade II (0.9cmm). It was removed and everything else tested negative. I'm on Femara 2.5mg. I'm also taking Ginko Biloba, Calcium, Glucosamine/Chondroitine and vitamin C. Do these supplement affect the medication? Also, I am planning to take Tight, a fat burner. It contains Green Tea, Synephrine, Gugglusterone, Sclareoilide, Yohimbine, Vinpocetine, and Bioperine. I really need something to help me loose weight besides my excersizing and my diet. This pill has put on some weight on me. Thanks for your help.[/b]

Unfortunately I cannot answer your question. Supplements are often not well studies so caution is always advised.
There are newer references that have more information about interactions with supplementals/herbs, etc. I don't have any of these available to look them up for you. Sorry about that.
What you may want to do is talk with your pharmacist. They often have access to programs that can look up these interactions better.
I wish I could be of more help to you. I wanted to at least give you some direction to possible find your answers.
