Common Questions and Answers about Taking phentermine with zoloft

phentermine

Cherry - How is the phentermine working with the Zoloft? I am on Zoloft too and looking to start phentermine. I have been on ohentermine in the past and it worked great but was not on any anti-depressants at the time. Thanks!
Hi, I've been on Zoloft for years, and I'm taking phentermine. It's just ONE MORE REASON why people sholdn't take such drugs without a doctor's recommendation and monitoring. We can't possibly know which drugs have contraindications for others. I don't know about Lexapro, though.
I also had the same problem with my pills. This is my second week on Phentermine. 2 wks ago I lost 6.5 pounds with the Rx pills that I got at a Food Town pharmacy. Then last week I got them at double the price at CVS. I didn't read the numbers on the second set of pills but the first ones were a number and a symbol of some kind and were WHITE W/BLUE DOTS. The ones from CVS that I took this past week were BLUE W/DK BLUE SPOTS but didn't read the number and didn't loose any weight.
Everyone has a different body chemistry and it may take time to find out which kind of antidepressant helps you. I haven't struggled with side effects of effexor, but I did with zoloft and paxil. Everyone is different. I, too, am struggling with weight gain. Probably a combination of meds and depression - I don't have a lot of energy to exercise. Try a low carb diet. It will kick start the loss and you WILL lose weight.
I also take Zoloft which I read on another forum cause weight gain. Does anyone have experience with Zoloft weight gain or weight loss resistance will taking the hcg/b12 shots and tenuate ?
I am taking B-12 with out Lipo and HCG. I take the plain B-12 once every three weeks and I take phen daily along with a iron pill. I received my first shot Feb 3. I weighed in at 193. When I received my second shot on Feb 23 I weighed 175. So in those three weeks I lost 18lbs. I dont weigh myself in between visits. My next appointment is March 16, so I will see what happens then.
HELLO, I HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH MY ZOLOFT. I HAVE BEEN ON ZOLOFT FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS NOW AND I WENT TO SEE A PSYCHITRIST THE OTHER DAY A TOLD HIM MY PROBLEMS AND THAT ZOLOFT WASN'T HELPING ME AND HE SAID STOP TAKING THE ZOLOFT AND START TAKING WELLBUTRIN SR, SO THAT DAY I STOPPED THE ZOLOFT AND STARTED THE WELLBUTRIN.
I excercised and watched my diet. However at the same time I was taking Zoloft (which some said would make the phentermine work more) however I never quite felt the same on phentermine as I did after my second child. Last month my doctor pulled me off of the zoloft (thank goodness) and off of the phentermine. Thankfully I didn't gain alot because the going off of the zoloft was horrible. Tomorrow she says I can go back on the phentermine by itself. Has anyone experienced this?
I've been fit my whole life, work out every day for 25 years, run, swim, lift weights, but, once on the paxil my weight started to climb no matter what I did with diet or exercise. Simply put, I need help. I'm pushing the envelope from time to time: phentermine, rimonobant via europe, everything and anything to cut weight. nothing works. I even went on a steroid web site to see if any advice could solve the problem.
Ive found some that didnt warn me about taking SSRI's with phentermine. My pharmacist noticed when prescribed lexapro that i shouldnt take it while on the diet pills. Ive had a weight gain of 15-20 lbs in the past few months appears to be mostly water. Its all in my midsection (like I have a flotation device around my waist) and in my upper arms.
Is there a website where you can list all the drugs you're taking and it tell you if its ok? One that is accurate? Ive found some that didnt warn me about taking SSRI's with phentermine. My pharmacist noticed when prescribed lexapro that i shouldnt take it while on the diet pills. Im a 27 yr old single mom of a very active 5 & 7 yr old. Im a social worker but doing marketing for hospice and sales is very stressful. Not to mention Im very ocd, very analytical by nature....
My friend also took Lexapro a few years back and she too gained a bunch of weight from it. I recommend Zoloft or Welbutrin along with Phentermine 37.5. The pounds will fall off. Good luck!
The phentermine will make you a little wired and I am not sure I would want to take it so soon after giving birth. Especially if your baby is not sleeping through the night. You can take zoloft along with the phentermine if you do try the phen. Goodluck! Enjoy your new baby....the days seem long at this point, but time will slip by fast!

Thank you for your reply, what happens if i did start taking reductil with anti- depressants?
I was using 2 in the am and 2 in pm (25 mg each for 100mg a day) for headache control. of course with that medication you have to start off with one then add one and when you stop you must tapper off it is also used for seizures. It did take some getting use to, sort of maked me feel a little spacey, that feeling did go away after I got use to the pills, but it surely does work for migranes, and I did not have any other issues.
Also and important fact to possibly know-I am also on Zoloft. Can Serotonin syndrome come in to play with PH? I didn't realize that PH was a disease rather than just a temporary condition!?
after gaining weight on depo provera, elavil and/or zoloft my doc prescribed lexapro (an antidepressent supposed to not cause weight gain) with phentermine (diet pills) which i found out could not be combined (something about the diet pills intensifying the effects of the SSRI) so weve switched now to cymbalta for anxiety/depression with phamacist stating that it was one of the only drugs used to treat depression that does not have any weight side effects. We'll see!
If I were you -- and I'm sure the average doctor would disagree with this advice -- I would take phentermine while quitting marijuana. Phentermine might provide you with the "boost" or "energy" to get through the psychological withdrawal. Again, I'm not a doctor. I'm sure this advice is "bad." But then again, you're smoking pot. That's not even legal.
and yesterday I woke up with Bell's Palsy I am taking cymbalta, prednison and famvir now to help with the symptoms and Bell's palsy. Yet I feel like no one can understand what I am going through and no one seems to know what's wrong. The term Chronic Epstain Barr Virus has been thrown around with my doctor but there is treatment for that and I can't accept that this is the way I will feel the rest of my life. I truely feel like there is something more that is getting missed.
So far I've lost 30 pounds. I started taking phentermine 37.5 with it about 3 months ago. The Welbutrin did pretty good with controlling my hunger but the phentermine really helped me loose the weight. I have to force myself to eat. It caused me to be pretty jittery at first but after a couple of weeks it improved.
by the way, depression doesn't enter into it, as i am taking 200 mg of zoloft on top of everything else.
You could try phentermine or Bontril for appetite control if you wanted to try something with less side effects. I started Bontril in June, along with B-12/ hcg injections, and have lost 19 lbs.
I have an appt in Birmingham AL with a doctor that gives lipotropic and B6 and B12 injections along with appetite suppressants. Has anyone ever heard of any dangerous side effects from taking these?
I got my shot on Monday (7-19-10) and I'm taking the phentermine pills (15mg)...It really does work..I did it 3 years ago when I got married and I lost 35 lbs in 2 months...If your doing it, please stick to it because it really helps...I'll keep you guys posted after my 2 weeks is up...
I know there are people MUCH worse than me, but is there anything anyone can do to help me stop? I hate taking medication but is there something I can take...I'm really sick of it!! I miss my eye lashes!
I have had PVCs for almost 6 years. I got them first while taking Phentermine part of the Phen-Fen Combo. And after that they never went away. Bending down was when I first noticed them. My heart rate has been high ever since then. Most of the time I can shrug them off, but they have been quite disabling for me. Wish they would go away. I notice when it is time for my cycle and during midpoint my heart does weird things, not necessarly PVCs, it just beats weird for those days.
It just seems like a vicious cycle. Not to mention that all of my friends are doing the medical weight loss with the phentermine and the B-12 shots and they look amazing. I said to myself "I can do this!" So I went and paid almost $300.00 to start the program. I told the doctor about my heart issues and once again he looked at me like I was crazy and told me that if I was that worried to only take a half of a pill.
I am also AMAZED that a DOCTOR would actually say that this isn't dangerous, or that it isn't the PAXIL!?!? Are you kidding? How much were you paid to say that? Paxil DID help with my panic attacks. Did not cure or stop them, but helped. Then getting off of it, or trying to was ABSOLUTE HELL! I can't walk because I'm so dizzy I can't keep my balance. My head feels foggy and cloudy. My head also hurts and it feels like someone keeps hammering a nail into my eyes.
