Will Adipex Affect My Antidepressants Or Birth Control
Unsure: There are no direct drug-drug interactions that i know of, however, this drug does affect metabolism and weight and with that can affect menses and absorption of other drugs. I would seek the counsel of my pcp/gyn/mental health provider and would consider a consultation with a pharmacy doctorate and be cautious of the mixing of these meds if any concern. Being pregnany if unwanted is serious! ...Read more

Could an antidepressant or birth control pill I have been on for years suddenly start causing chronic constipation? (12wks)
Unlikely: It would be unusual to develop a new side effect from a medication you are already used to taking. Look for other causes. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and eating foods containing plenty of fiber: whole grains, fruits and vegetables. See your doctor soon. Avoid the trap of taking OTC laxatives very often, as they can make problem worse. ...Read more
Can giving birth 9 weeks ago make my periods delayed or irregular?Also can adipex delay my period?Is my birth control effective immediately on sunday?
Yes, delivering 9 : Weeks ago will alter your cycle! i assume u are not breast feeding and trying to lose pregnancy wt on adipex, that's not the reason, it is recommended that, during the first month of the pill we recommend backup; the birth control pull is not immediatly active, it must inhibit ovulation, which mat be about to occur, or not, which would make the risk of pregnancy higher but still low after 9 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I haven't gotten period im 2weeksnot late. But im on birth control n taking a anti depression medicine - is it safe to continue?
Caution: I agree with drs. Bey and passer. Medications such as Phentermine that stimulate CNS activity can precipitate mania, and what goes up comes back down. Occasionally birth control products, especially those higher in Progesterone can contribute to depression, though this is rarely an issue. Many mood stabilizers are less then friendly for weight, speak to your psychiatrist about options to help. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Can i take phentermine and thyroid medication at the same time? I am also taking sprintec birth control.
Yes, but: You need to take the thyroid medication if your thyroid level is abnormal. The Phentermine will only affect it if your dose of either is excessive. The phentermine, however, only works for as long as you take it - then you'll begin to gain the weight back unless you've learned how to eat properly - if you have, you don't need the Phentermine in the first place. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How likely is it to get pregnant while you have the birth control implant? Also what effects do anti depressants have on nexplanon?
No effect of SSRIs: The birth control implant (Implanon/Nexplanon) is extremely safe because it only releases the progestin, Etonogestrel. There is no estrogen and so the risk of clots is MUCH lower than any combined method. Failure rate is 0.05% in a year, which is almost better than getting your tubes tied. It is effective within a week of insertion and won't be affected by ANY antibiotics (except rifampin)/SSRIs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am peri menopausal but can not take birth control due to severe side effects. Anti depressants did not work either. What else can I do ?
Does anti-depression medicine affect the effectiveness of birth control pills? Take other precaution to prevent pregnancy?
Im on loestrin fe. My dr prescribed phentermine to me for some weight loss. I am experiencing break through bleeding. is my birth control ineffective?
Loestrin Fe works: The Loestrin Fe is still working in spite of the breakthrough bleeding as long as you are not taking the phentermine at the same time as the contraceptive. The healthiest way to lose weight is with diet modifications and exercise and not phentermine, because the weight loss on "speed"(phentermine) will return once you stop taking that pill. ...Read more
