Can you take xenical and prozac (fluoxetine) together?

No: Xenical should be taken with or just before a meal. Prozac (fluoxetine) should usually be taken in the evening just before bed time. There is a significant possibility that the xenical will decrease absorption of the Prozac (fluoxetine) if taken together.

Yes: Yes there is no interaction between 2 medications not sure what is purpose you take xenicals.

Xenical (Orlistat) is designed to treat obesity. Over the counter name is Alli. It prevents absorption of fats from the diet, hence reducing calorie intake.
