Is ephedrine safe as a wt loss aid to help suppress appetite? Only 20 lbs to lose as my BMI is just over avg. I take prozac (fluoxetine). Need appetite self contro

No: Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is somewhat effective as an appetite suppressant but is generally not considered safe for frequent use because it is a stimulant that shares similar properties with cocaine. As a result it can cause elevations of blood pressure and rarely dangerous heart rhythm problems. ...Read more

Are there appetite suppressants? I take seroquel (quetiapine) its the only stronger medicine that helps me sleep but i gain weight i lost 54 pounds on suppressant

Appetite suppression: Yes, there are appetite suppressants that can be prescribed -- but can also aggravate other symptoms. I believe you wrote about having been on adipex previously. Other possible helps could be topomax and metformin -- not really "appetite suppressants" but may help with weight gain. Best of all is for you to increase activity and review your foods carefully with a nutritionist. Be well. ...Read more

Sudden loss of appetite. No other symptoms. Anxiety/depression has been under control for 3 years with 10mg Prozac (fluoxetine) rx. Could it be a new side effect?

Sudden loss of appetite. No other symptoms. Anxiety/depression has been under control for 3 years with 10mg Prozac (fluoxetine) rx. Could it be a new side effect?

Not likely: Nothing is impossible w/ side effects for psychotropics, but not likely. However, you might be ready to try to taper off Prozac (fluoxetine). I hate the idea of forever for a drug like that. If you've not done some therapy, you might want to try a bit to feel secure as you get off the meds. Best! ...Read more
