    I take Pristiq along with phentermine. Both my doctors and pharmacist have said that these 2 drugs together are safe. Pristiq is new and so far I love it! No side effects like all the other SSRI's and it also helps LOSE WEIGHT! So that with the phentermine is great!

    Just thought I would share, I was glad to read that others on here are on Pristiq too. I had not heard of it before about a month ago!

    Default I take Effexor

    I take 300 mg of Effexor and 1 mg of Risperadal. No problems here. Dr. said it would be fine. I also have taken .5mg of Xanax if I start to get anixous.

    I took both the Phen and Prozac, and I was told that my attitude changed, but I think it changed for the better because I was starting to get my self confidence back and maybe it was a little bit of an attitude toward my Husband, but you know what? I think it was deserved-I had been over weight and had no self confidence I was basicly the "Maid" in the house. So when I actually started doing something for myself...WELLLLL it was MY attitude that changed and no one like that I actually took time for myself. Needless to say I was made feel so guilty that I got off of them (and not the right way) and guess what? I am right back where I was. My point is, if you feel good about yourself, don't let anyone make you feel guilty or second guess the way you are acting-Maybe it is their problem and they have to get over it!

    Default Omg, I had the same problem!!!

    Omg, I had the same problem!!! I took phen the first month and I felt like it totally altered my personality, some people commented my sense of humor was gone and I was no fun and I was irritable and snappy all the time. I would get irritated with the littlest things and yelled a lot.

    Also I think it had to do with behavior perception too...since I was now dieting I couldn't participate in some things I did before (go out for ice cream all the time, go out to fast food for lunch everyday, sit on the couch and gorge on junk while watching TV with my BF), and I committed to going to the gym and stuck to that. And so I think all that got interpreted sometimes as "I wasn't any fun anymore".

    My doctor switched me to Bontril and those symptoms have gone away and people have gotten used to my "new" attitude. I take it with 2 antidepressants, bupropion (sp?) 450 mg and Cymbalta 30 mg and have not had any problems with those, although the combo of bupropion and the Bontril does make it hard to sleep some nights.
