Adipex Drug Interactions
When certain medications, such as monoamine oxidase inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants, are taken together with Adipex, drug interactions may occur. These negative interactions could increase the level of Adipex in your blood and possibly lead to dangerous side effects. Alcohol, diabetes medications, and other weight-loss drugs may also cause Adipex interactions.
Adipex-P® (phentermine) can potentially interact with a few other medicines. Some of these medicines that may lead to Adipex-P interactions include:
- Alcoholic beverages
- Diabetes medications
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs, for short), including:
- Other weight-loss medications
- Sodium bicarbonate medications (not including normal use in food products)
- Tricyclic antidepressants, including:
- Tromethamine (THAM®).
