Zetacap & Antidepressants
« on: 10/03/2006 02:42:13 »
Hi All.
I'm new here - and also new at probably trying out Zetacap.
But first I can't seem to get any answers regarding Zetacap and antidepressants. I have been taking these for a year or so.
My doctor does not know anything about Zetacap, because it is not yet FDA approved in Canada.
Tried to call the zetacap website and they referred me, of course, to my GP.
There in one ingredients that sets off an alarm for me and that is
St. Johns Wort which would be duplicating fluvox (the antidepressant)
Anyone on this forum taking both????
I'd be grateful for any response as I really really want to lose some weight!!!!!!!!!

Please check with some of the folks on the main Zetacap thread, as I don't take the antidepressants, but I do use the Zetacap. Karen

Hi all.
I'm new here also and have just started taking zetacap at the first of the week so far I've lost 3 lbs. I also take antidepressants(prozac) and blood pressure med. I take  them at night and there has been no problems it doesnt make me feel different if anything I feel better now than I did before taking the zetacaps. Also I have found if I take the zetacap in the morning without eating I feel full for about 5 hours but about 3 hours after taking it I will get shaky and nauseated like my blood sugar is dropping so today I ate a small breakfast and waited about an hour then took the zetcap and I felt full longer ate a small child size supper and am still comfortable 10 hours later. Maybe this will help. GOOD LUCK:)
