Didrex Drug Interactions
Didrex Interactions ExplainedThe following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Didrex is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Any Other Weight Loss Medications
Do not combine Didrex with any other weight loss medications or supplements, as doing so may increase the risk of pulmonary hypertension, a rare but often fatal disorder.
Because you may eat less while taking Didrex, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your insulin dose.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Taking Didrex and MOA inhibitors together can cause life-threatening side effects, such as very high blood pressure. Do not take Didrex if you have taken an MAOI within the past 14 days.
Sodium bicarbonate (when taken as a medication, not in normal food use) can increase the level of Didrex in your blood, increasing your risk of Didrex side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Taking Didrex with a tricyclic antidepressant can increase the risk of dangerous side effects from either medication. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Didrex with a tricyclic antidepressant.
Tromethamine can increase the level of Didrex in your blood, increasing the risk of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking tromethamine and Didrex together.
