NO - GPs generally do not follow up on prescribed medication. but you can always ask a pharmacist to look at what you take and “comment”.

One overall problem is that the prescribing guidelines will list the interaction between drug “A” and drug “B”. What they do not do is to show this interaction in the presence of drug “C”, or when someone is also on “X”, “Y”, and “Z”.
