Been over?weight and on antidepressants for several years. Can Belviq be used safely
Can you specify the name of the antidepressant?
What other drugs will affect Belviq?
Tell your doctor about all other medicines you use, especially:
SNRI antidepressant such as duloxetine (Cymbalta) or venlafaxine (Effexor);
an SSRI antidepressant such as citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac, Rapiflux, Sarafem, Selfemra, Symbyax), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil, Pexeva), sertraline (Zoloft), or vilazodone (Viibryd);
other antidepressants such as bupropion (Wellbutrin, Zyban) or trazodone (Desyrel, Oleptro).
I am currently taking 20mg Lexapro as I have been for more than a year. Last week my doctor prescribed Belviq. He told me to pay attention to any major changes but it should cause me any problems.
If you are really concerned you may just want to talk to your doctor.
Hope this helps.
