The person is male bodybuilder on victoza to treat obesity for past 3 months.He wants to commence 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) as a self "medication" for his body building career. He has taken DNP before AND SAYS HE WAS FINE BUT NEVER taken it while on victoza.I do not want to start judging him because he has heard it all and does not want to go" underground" in search of answers.
Can someone take 2,4-dinitrophenol 200mg orally while taking victoza 1.2mg sub cut injections daily?

The person is in good health no illnesses, sporty but obese 5ft 4 in 270lbs. Victoza has been very good at controlling his appetite and has lost 60 lbs in 12 weeks, now he weighs 210lbs.
awesa, welcome to the site. I could not find dinitrophal in the drug list, but it asked if I meant trophamine. If this is the correct drug, there were no interreactions between victoza & trophamine. If this is not the correct drug you are talking about, I suggest this person check with his doctor before adding anything to victoza for any reason. I am giving you a link about victoza & side effects etc... Hope this will help in the decision, but still believe a doctor should be involved in adding anything to this drug...
