Hello,

I will be working on your answer and checking for any cross reactions. I don't know of any but will check for you.

OK, There was no mention of any interactions between the medication and herbal supplement.

However, because the FDA does not regulate the supplement it hasn't been carefully looked at.

I will caution you though that there was a recall of Hydroxycut in May 2009 because of patients having liver damage from this supplement. That would be more concerning than taking it with Desogen.
