antidepresants and thermogenics

Does anyone know if it is safe to take a fat burner with anti-depressants. Wellbutrin specifically. If sso, should go with ephedrine or ephedrine-free supps.

come one. I know one of you doctors out there has an answer

Good question. I was just thinking about this today at work.

Read the label on the product in question.

it says don not use with an MAOI inhibitor and I have no idea what the fuck that means. is Wellbutrin an MAOI inhibitor?

yes

Yikes. Wellbutrin is a stimulant. You should not take any other stimulants with it.

Wellbutrin also increases the risk of seizures and causes other irregularities in the nervous and motor systems:

I would suspect that this drug could be at the root of your recent, frequent muscle sprains and injuries.

Wellbutrin also increases drug-metabolizing enzymes, which means that any other compound you are taking has increased potency and potential for harmful side effects and interactions. It is a powerful and dangerous drug. I hope you and your doctor know what you’re doing!

I’ve decided to nix this idea. One because of the other post on the board and two because i don’t wanna fucking die. Late.
