I am curious if there is a serious interaction between diet pills such as Xenadrine, and the anti-depressant, Cymbalta.  I know that you shouldn't take diet pills while on any MAOI's but since Cymbalta is a SSNRI, is it ok??  Has anyone had any good or bad experiences when taking these??  Any help is appreciated, I can't find much on the web about it.

Hi AMarie,

Xenadrine contains ephedra, I dont know if this would cause an interaction or not with your medication but there are many who do believe that ephedra products are not safe to take.  Your best bet would be to notify your physician who has prescribed the antidepressant and let him or her know of all the over the counter medication that you take.

My hubby is going to a diet doc, this doc wanted to prescibe Phentermine, an appetite surpressant. But his pyschriatrist said NO WAY. He is also on Cymbalta. It can cause MAJOR reactions. And it isn't just maybe, most of the time it will cause problems, big problems. You are best NOT to take the two together.
