adipex & weight loss

Sep 21, 2005

I am taking Truvada, Reyataz & Norvir for my HIV. I have gained 25 pounds and am curious if I can take Adipex to control weight? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm not a big fan of Adipex (phentermine) because of the risks of some pretty serious toxicities (pulmonary hypertension). That said, I'm not aware of any drug-drug interactions that make this otherwise dangerous.

Before starting, please discuss your wieght control issues with your doctor, case manager or dietitian.

Good luck, thanks for posting. BY
