Is it ok to take sertradilne and also take vitamin C and/or diet pills?

Is it ok to take sertradilne and also take vitamin C and/or diet pills?

Partly: Ok to take sertraline & normal doses of vit c. But I don't believe it is ok to take diet pills. If you're referring to a prescription, you'll want to ask the prescribing doctor. But if you're referring to an over the counter diet pill, I say stop taking it altogether. They do not work & often contain unregulated amounts of potentially harmful stimulants, which can interact with sertraline. ...Read more

Most currently FDA-approved appetite medications are dispensed by prescription due to potential side effects and contraindications. Diet pills alone are seldom successful in deriving long-term weight reduction. They should only be taken under the direct supervision of a physician specifically trained in their use as a part of a multi-modal treatment program including diet, exercise, ...Read more

On prenatal vitamins at the same tym taking Alli diet pills. As a result, I have to take centrum every nyt. Centrum contains 400mcg follic acid. Safe?

Rec: Change Strategy: Why the belief, other than marketing, that you "need" extra vitamins? Buyer beware always applies; look for my answer “...Good idea to take a multivitamin daily...”. Alli not very effective & ↑ GI problems, etc. Better: 1. Cut carbs & quantity. Study nusi. Org, videos: "sugar: the bitter truth" & “how the government makes you fat” 2. Avoid otc products. 3. Find great md, ex & maybe:victoza+/-symlin. ...Read more

Loosing weight. Is it ok to take diet pills like orlustat?

Water & diet pill: My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting or a pill, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, & start doing some cardiovascular exercise. Diet pills are not the answer. ...Read more

Is it okay if I take diet pills with cipralex? Or is it dangerous?

Cipralex: Cipralex is an ssri and should not be taken in conjunction with MAO inhibitors. The problem with diet pills is that you never really know what is in it. There is no magic diet pill, and I certainly wouldn't recommend any diet pill to any patient. Add in the fact that you take cipralex and I would really suggest avoiding diet pills or herbal supplements to be on the safe side. ...Read more

195lbs: 195lbs is heavy for a female of any age and I'm glad that you are interested in addressing the problem. Diet pills often do not work, nor are they safe - especially for a child. If she is having difficulty with her weight, you should schedule an appointment with her doctor to discuss. A healthy diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and skim milk along with daily exercise is the best way for anyone to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Eliminating fast food, soda, juice, fried foods and sweets is important, too. Studies show that children are most successful with weight loss when the whole family participates in following a healthy lifestyle together. ...Read more
