A female asked:

is it safe to take the "it works" diet pills while taking wellbutrin, topamax (topiramate) and a low dosage of prozac?

Probably not: It is imperative that you inform your doctor, who prescribed the other medications, if you intend to take "Diet pills". Please keep in mind that the "Diet Pills" will lighten your wallet but not reduce your waist line.

A 35-year-old member asked:

I am currently on Prozac (fluoxetine) and the medication gave me muscle weakness and I fell. Is there a way I can regain my strength?

Call your doctor!: It would be very, very, very uncommon for Prozac alone to directly adversely affect muscle strength! there are however drug drug interactions and electrolyte changes that can occur with medications like fluoxetine. You should make your physician aware of this episode without delay.
