Weight Loss Home > Adipex Drug Interactions
The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Adipex-P is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
In general, it is usually recommended that people avoid drinking alcohol while taking Adipex-P.
Because you may eat less while taking Adipex-P (since it is an appetite suppressant), your healthcare provider may need to decrease the dose of your diabetes medications.
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
Taking Adipex-P and MOA inhibitors together can cause life-threatening side effects, such as very high blood pressure. Do not take Adipex-P if you have taken an MAOI within the past 14 days.
Other Weight-Loss Medications
Adipex-P has not been adequately studied in combination with any other obesity medications. It is not recommended that Adipex-P be combined with other weight-loss medications.
Sodium bicarbonate (when taken as a medication, not in normal food use) can increase the level of Adipex-P in your blood, increasing your risk of Adipex-P side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Taking Adipex-P with a tricyclic antidepressant can increase the risk of dangerous side effects from either medication. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Adipex-P with a tricyclic antidepressant.
Tromethamine can increase the level of Adipex-P in your blood, increasing the risk of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking tromethamine and Adipex-P together.
