I'm taking liquid methadone and am ibterested in starting plexius slim. Will there be any interactions or withdrawls that I need to worry about?
As I review the: Plexus Slim label, I don't see anything that should be a problem: chromium, green coffee extract, garcinia cambogia, sweeteners. BUT, when you are taking something as strong as methadone, I think you should clear EVERYTHING -- all vitamins, supplements, OTCs, everything -- with your prescribing physician/program. Please check with him/her/them before proceeding. Good wishes:) ...Read more
