To decrease glandular cellular activity and prostate size, an 83-year- old patient has been prescribed finasteride (Proscar). When performing patient education with this patient, the nurse should be sure to tell the patient what?

Answer Explanation: Some herbal supplements are contraindicated with Proscar, thus their planned use should be discussed with the physician or pharmacist.
