What diet pill is safe to use with antidepressants? Like Prozac (fluoxetine)

I . I always recommend that you speak with the medical provider who is prescribing your antidepressant directly before taking an additional medication, an herbal or a supplement. When medications are mixed, there is a possiblity that they can interact. Another option to help with your weight would be the addition of medical acupuncture to a balance of healthy diet; plenty of water and aerobic activity. Auricular (ear) acupuncture is safe and effective. There are several different protocols for weight loss. Good luck.

Not together. That herb actually has a number of very active drugs in it. There are very few studies that look at the interaction between prescription medication and over-the-counter herbs. I would not recommend using the two together. Consult with your doctor and see what they think.Just because it is an herb doesn't mean it does not contain drugs. Interactions are always possible.

Possible interaction. Gingko and Prozac (fluoxetine) are both metabolized by the same liver enzyme system, so can compete for use of this. Also gingko can slightly inhibit this enzyme system, possibly slowing prozac's metabolism. There is also anecdotal evidence that gingko + Prozac (fluoxetine) in depressed patients can lead to hypomania -- but we don't know whether gingko alone can do this (without the prozac).

Ask doc. With help from your physician. If you have had more than one major depressive episode, it would be better to stay on them longer because it recurs at the rate of 50% after 2 and >90% after 3 episodes. Prozac is so long acting that it tapers itself for the most part, but you may feel muscles jumping independently and other withdrawal symptoms while decreasing your dose by 10mg every 2-3 weeks.
