Wellbutrin And Diet Pills
Impossible to say: Ace diet pills contain raspberry ketones, garcinia cambodia, saffron, green coffee bean extract, l carnitine, and konjak root extract. I have a bottle of raspberry ketones. The bottle has so many medical warnings against it on the back including mood disorders, that it is hard to tell whether the company that makes it is simply trying to cover itself from potential lawsuits or whether there's actually been research done on these issues. All i can tell you is that there is no information that i can find about this and that i doubt that these medications have been subjected to any type of drug interactions studies. Therefore, i cannot recommend that youtake this combined supplementin the absence of adequate research. Best wishes. ...Read more
Anorectic agents generally known as diet pills are medications which decrease or inhibit appetite and aid in the reduction of food intake, therefore aiding weightmloss. 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

Yes: There is no problem taking any ssri antidepressant with the diet pills. These appear to contain caffeine and cocoa, which can increase anxiety.

I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) bcp. I want to start taking apple cider vinegar+nettle+chromium pills as a dietary supplement for aided weight loss. Will they interfere?
There's no easy fix: Weight loss is a difficult challenge-and any supplements or pills are unlikely to have a real effect. (Of course there are stimulants that increase your metabolic rate-but these are a bit dangerous since there could be side effects with those). I don't think this supplement you've mentioned will have an effect, so I wouldn't waste money on it. EXERCISE and eating right are much better alternatives ...Read more

I just started taking Orsythia birth control pills. I wanted to try taking Garcinia Cambogia along with diet and exercise. Will this affect my BC?
Unknown: Since Garcinia is a dietary supplement, it has not been studied and reviewed in the same way as a drug would be. As a result there is incomplete understanding of it's interactions and metabolism. If you are sexually active and you do not want to get pregnant, then it is best to avoid it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and i'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?
Not likely: The herbal parts of this regimen seem to include milk thistle, echinacea, and astragalus -- none of which should cause a problem with wellbutrin (bupropion). If you're also taking the fiber part of this plan, i suggest taking that separately from your medication so that absorption is as good as possible. ...Read more
Yes: That would not cause a problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Not question of safe: When on a diet rich in fats and you take pills to block fat absorption, you are likely to have problems controlling your bowel movements. You may find yourself in situations with the need for immediate access to a toilet and possibly even situations where you don't always make it in time. Limit fats and increase proteins and don't take such medications. Low glycemic index better than low carb. ...Read more
Is it safe to take the "It Works" diet pills while taking wellbutrin, topamax (topiramate) and a low dosage of prozac?
Medications and such: Yes. You can. But, you do realize that this "african mango diet pill" is a fraud and will not lead you to any real or lasting weight loss? Please do not be gullible and waste your money on one more fraudulent product designed to separate those of us with weight issues from our money. I often tell my patients that these diet fads postpone the real work it takes to change our bodies and our lives. ...Read more
