Anti-Depressants and Appetite Suppressants

I am a 52 y.o. who has suffered depression for 25 yrs. I have gained approx. 10 kilos over the last 12 months and would like to know if anyone has tried and appetite suppressant whilst taking and Anti-depressant?

Recently my dose of Luvox has been increased from 150 mg. to 300 mg. and I have gained approx. 3 kilos. I weighed myself this morning and I weighed 85.2. I really need to get the weight off as I am only 5ft. tall and an asthmatic. Any suggestions?

Re: Anti-Depressants and Appetite Suppressants

This is potentially a risky mix of drugs, since there are so many different kinds of "appetite-suppresants". You could start my talking with your pharmacist, they're most knowledgeable about drug interactions. I have a gut feeling it's not a great idea, but not really sure. If your pharmicist gives you the green light, be sure and tell your doctor you've added it to your regimen. Good luck!
