Wt loss ; depression: I googled this and it does not seem to be related to phentermine. Active ingredients appear to be caffeine and green tea. However, key to wt loss is not in taking something but in changing attitudes re food and exercise. Have you tried overeaters anonymous? Not a diet club, but a way to "lose the weight between our ears" that keeps us putting on ; keeping on the weight. See oa.Org for more info.

Be aware: That citalopram and the several sources of caffeine from the supplement could increase bleeding issues in you.
