Why ist figwort not compatible with black hellebore? How much time should pass by before taking the other?

I got a prescription for black hellebore from a doctor in the anthroposophic / homoeopathic field,
and from a TCM doctor a herb tea containing among other herbs dominantly Scrophularia nodosa and Viscum album.

What should I do? Not take the tea? Or for some days ? or only hours ? take the hellebore, during others the tea? Is it just a questions of hours, not to take it in combination?
