In brief: Yes
However Prozac like any ssri has a potential to cause weight gain, wellbutrin (bupropion) or viiibryd may be better alternatives for people who are focused in keeping weight off.

I would not be combining Prozac (fluoxetine) with appetite suppressants.
Please discuss any concerns about appetite or medication with your doctor -- s/he knows your whole situation and can advise you appropriately.

I can not recall any but check with your md.
My patient seem to gain weight on prozac (fluoxetine). My patients take low-dose Phentermine that are on Prozac (fluoxetine) and do not seem to have any problems at all. However, everybody's different, so be sure you clear any medications you take with your doctor.
