since when have you been on it?
I was prescribed Adipex recently from the same dr. that prescribes me Cymbalta.
Cymbalta for over 2 years
Adipex for a month
I just have heard that you should take SSRI's with Adipex. I take the cymbalta every other day for anxiety.
I am down to 30 mg every other day.
Are you still there?
they are generally avoided
the reaction has been reported in reviews of many Drug Jounrals
Is there anything that would make them dangerous to take together
they can start interacting between3 to 4 weeks
Why would my family doctor prescribe them them?
is your family doctor a General Family Physician or has he done a Postgraduation degree
General I believe
What is serotonin syndrome?
then he is not experienced in this interaction i believe: Ask him if he knows what Serotonin syndrome is
But if I have taken the Adipex for 30 days while on the Cymbalta and nothing happened would you say that I am less likely to be at risk for this?
yes less likely luckily
but there is a case where the reaction developed 4 weeks later too
i suggest you speak to him about it today or tomorrow so he can put you on an alternative medicine
is that fine?
have you understood or agree with what I have mentioned?
Alternative medicine for which one?
he can continue cymbalta
What are alternatives that don't interact with Cymbalta?
why did he start ADIPEX FOR?
are you there?
Yes, sorry. To loose weight
well I would suggest that you should not take adipex for sure
Because of the Cymbalta or because you just don't like Adipex?
there is no medicine in particular that can be taken to loose weight along with dulexitine as there is a heavy chance of interaction
no its not that I dont like Adipex
what was cymbalata given for?
Anxiety. I have been on and off anti depressants since I was 19 because of anxiety disorder.
so it is important for you to be on cymbalata as compared to adipex
do you have any other questions?
hello are you there?
