If certain medications are combined with Lipo-6, interactions could occur. For example, taking it with breast cancer medications, estrogen-containing hormone replacement therapy, or antidepressants could increase your risk of side effects or lead to a potentially dangerous heart arrhythmia. To avoid these and other problems, ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider about the Lipo-6 interactions that may apply to you.
An Introduction to Lipo-6 InteractionsVery little information is available about possible Lipo-6™ drug interactions. Based on the information that is available about a few of the individual components of Lipo-6, it is assumed that the supplement will interact with certain medicines. Some of the medicines that may lead to Lipo-6 interactions include:
- Aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Any other stimulants, including caffeine, cocaine, amphetamines, and many other weight loss products
- Clozapine (Clozaril®)
- Decongestants, such as pseudoephedrine (Sudafed®)
- Diabetes medications
- Estrogen-containing hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
- Hormonal therapy for breast cancer, such as:
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as:
- QT-prolonging medications (medications that increase the risk of a dangerous irregular heart rhythm known as QT prolongation)
- Theophylline (Uniphyl®, Theocron®, TheoCap®, Theo-24®, Elixophyllin®).
