Thanks for your patience. You probably are best advised not to take percocet while taking belviq. There is an increased risk of serotonin syndrome if taken together. This is not an absolute contraindication but you and your doctor should consider benefit/risk. If the same doctor wrote for both medications at the same time it is possible he has considered this. Best to check with belviq prescriber before taking percocet. Hope helpful. DrBillRPh.
