Meridia (sibutramine) and anti-depressant ? Toby?

Posted by janey on November 12, 1998, at 16:18:04

Toby or Dr. Bob, could you offer any information on
this for me?

The manufacturer of Meridia (sibutramine) has been
advertising on television recently about their weight-
loss medication. I have only 35 lbs. to lose and have
stalled or plateaued here for a couple of months. I
work out and try to keep the carbs down to a minimun,
and I eat very little animal fat. (Carbs are my down-
fall though!)

This Meridia sounds somewhat hopeful? However, in the
ads they warn not to take it with anti-depressants.
Do you know why? I would appreciate any information
you might have. I'm also curious about taking any OTC
"diet" meds with antidepressants -- is this contraindicated,
and if so, why? I just want to kick-start things and
begin losing more. I'll continue to exercise and keep
an eye on my diet intake. BTW, I take Effexor XR 150 mg
bid and 300 mg of trazodone at hs.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this!
