This is a great question.
You may check with your practitioner, She/ he will advice herbal medicines or supplements.
I believe you can get that answer soon, as long as they also practice others healing method.

Many acupuncturists also practice Chinese herbal medicine and here's where we need to be more careful. There are some documented interactions between Chinese herbs and conventional medications. There are a lot of Chinese herb and drug combinations where we simply do not know what might happen. To avoid problems with Chinese herbal meds, most acupuncturists will make sure they have a list of what a patient is currently taking. This list should be kept up to date in their records. If they don't ask, a patient needs to make sure the acupuncturist is aware - especially if they're recommending herbs.
I've worked with depression, anxiety and PTSD while patients were on meds to help these issues. I've worked with high blood pressure while patients were on meds for that issue. I've worked with pain conditions while patients were on pain meds.

As far as "medications" meaning "pharmaceutical drugs" are concerned, this is usually not in the scope of practice for the L.Ac. and would need to be worked through an MD. The acupuncture and work with MD can happen together, meaning you don't have to stop one because you are doing the other, but the acupuncturists would not be prescribing western medication and you should not be getting acupuncture from an MD unless they are fully trained in the medicine.
Personally, I rarely suggest herbs right away. I will wait for several treatments because the acupuncture by itself most often will take care of the problems patients are coming in to see me for.
I hope this answers your question!
