Lipozene after Bariatric surgery?

I had bariatric surgery in 2016. I lost 100 pounds, but since then I've gained 20 back and still have 70 to go. Can I safely try taking Lipozene? ## Hello DeeDee, According to the NIH and the Lipozene website there are no "interactions" between having this surgery and the medication, however, due to the fact that the surgery places a band it is unwise to do anything that could stretch the stomach. Lipozene works by stretching your stomach and making you feel full, which could be dangerous with a band installed. I personally do not think this is a good idea but there are no general warnings I could find on lipozene saying you can't. I strongly recommend that you discuss this matter with your doctor prior to starting just in case. I hope this helps. Have a great day. ## I...

Lipozene and blood thinners

I am on blood thinners right now and I need to lose weight so I would like to know if I can take Lipozene with a blood thinner? ## Lipozene is just a supplement that is claimed, but not proven to actually work for anything. The FDA does warn that is has caused nausea, heartburn, and diarrhea in some people that take it. Given that you are on blood thinners, which means you have a medical condition requiring them, I would suggest you not take anything, without checking with your medical provider. It may just be a supplement, but some of them can affect your INR. What blood thinner are you taking? ## Can I take Lipozene while I take Eliquis, a blood thinner? ## Can I take lipozene while taking eliquis?

Can I take Lipozene while on Warfarin?

My grandson is getting married at the end of July and I need to lose 25 lbs. Are there any appetite suppressants that are safe to take? ## Lipozene is a dietary supplement advertised to help with weight loss. Both the wiki page and the official website state that the active ingredient is Glucomannan (considered a dietary fiber), which is extracted from the Konjac Root. Because it is not classified as a pharmaceutical drug, you can't really get a definite answer through a drug interaction checker. Their FAQ page says "Always consult a health care professional before using this or any other dietary supplements. Stomach discomfort could arise. There are no known side effects when taking Lipozene® or MetaboUP PLUS as directed." With that being said, if you are already prone...

Can I take Lipozene while on blood thinners?

Can I take lipozene and eliquis at the same time? Does lipozene either thicken or thin blood? Or will it not interact negatively? ## Hello Maureen, From what I was able to find Lipozene is only a natural supplement containing the active ingredient glucomannan. The manufacturer claims, but has not been proven or accepted by the FDA, to aid in weight loss, balance blood sugars and relieve constipation. I was unable to find any scientific studies or documentation on interactions between Lipozene and other drugs. Assuming that you are already on Eliquis I can only strongly recommend that you discuss the safety of taking Lipozene. Only your primary care doctor will have access to your medical history and information which will allow them to make an informed decision on it's practicality ...

i have high blood pressure and diabetes - is it safe to use lipozene

I am very concerned about lipozene is safe with my conditions, of diabetes and high blood pressure. ## Hello, Pamela! How are you? Since Lipozene is just a nutritional supplement that's claimed to help with weight loss, there is no information available on possible interactions and contraindications. Have you consulted your doctor? That would be the best thing to do, so they can help you discover a safe and healthy way to lose weight. ## I was wondering the same question? But I take it anyway just thinkin it has to do something and it does curve my appetite and make me feel fuller.

Lipozene and diabetes

I want to know if I can take Lipozene if I am type 2 diabetic? Also I take metformin! ## Hello, I would honestly encourage you to discuss this with your prescribing doctor before trying it. Although from what I've read, Lipozene is often believed to treat type 2 diabetes. I cannot speak to its efficacy, but I would theorize that weight loss translates to more manageable blood sugar levels. Your doctor may also be able to determine if Lipozene and Metformin interact in any way, shape or form that would present a possible risk factor. Hope you are doing well sister! ## Is it safe to take if your type 2 diabetic and taking 500 metoformin?? ## I had open heart surgery on Jan.for a valve replacement also have afib.Is it ok for me to use ## Is it good to take Lipozene with high blood pres...

Lipozene side effects, contraindications and drug interactions

Their claims state that it contains a natural fiber that absorbs water, which helps you to feel full faster, since it's claimed to e...

lipozene and lamictal

I am taking both lamictal and topomax for seizures and would like to try lipozene. I have lost about 80 lbs. of weight but now I have so much flab that I need to get rid of in my mid section, lower thighs, and inner thighs. I've been excercising for the past two months now and nothing is not working. I've been weight lifting, working out on the machines, even using the treadmill and eliptical, but nothing seems to work! When I saw this commercial, I thought about it and was wondering if it would be safe? I know that it can be bought in retail stores like Walgreens so, I would try it there anyway. Liposuction is so expensive and I cannot afford that, so, this would probably be my only way out at this point unless there is another route I can take! Does anyone know if this is safe...

The manufacturer, which is listed on the website as being Obesity Research Institute, states that it contains a natural fiber that absorbs water in your stomach to help you feel full faster.

Taking Lipozene and Xarelto together

Can lipozene and xarelto be taken together? Are the effects of xarelto and lipozene compatible? ## Hi Lynne, From what I can gather, I believe your best bet would be to consult the doctor who's prescribing you Xarelto, since Lipozene (Amorphophallus konjac) itself is an OTC supplement that has not been approved by the FDA. Source: The various drug interaction checkers that can be found online also do not evaluate OTC dietary supplements - They only show interactions between different prescription drugs and other OTC pharmaceuticals (which Lipozene is not). I wish I could be of more help, but information on the combination of Lipozene and pharmaceuticals is scarce, to say the least. Does anyone else here have personal expe...

Lipozene - I'm a post stroke patient - I take about 5 different meds

I had a stroke 11 yrs ago and take 5mg of Warfarin daily. Has anyone had any adverse side effects while taking Lipozene with Warfarin? ## Hello, Pam! How are you? Given the fact that you are on multiple medications and have had a stroke, I wouldn't recommend taking anything, unless your doctor approves. A supplement like Lipozene is not tested for possible interactions with these types of medications, nor for contraindications with various medical conditions. Additionally, before taking Lipozene, you should be aware that the reviews listed on various websites, such as Amazon and RebelMouse are not positive. Many people were greatly disappointed in this product. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Warfarin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of ble...

Thinking of starting the weight loss pill just want to make sure I can mix the two. ## I'm sorry, but since the Lipozene is an over the counter natural product, it has not been tested for possible interactions with prescription medications. It would be best to check with your doctor, before taking it, in order to be safe. They sometimes know more, due to the experience of other patients.

Don't trust Lipozene

Before you buy something it's always good to do in-depth research on the product. I wanted to try Lipozene but then I searched for Lipozene Reviews on Google and this page showed up: It looks like a 30 cap bottle will last you only for 5 days since you have to take 6 a day, that will be around $180 a month, not to mention it has terrible side effects.

Lipozene Pills

I began taking Lipozene pills (the recommended dosage of 2 pills up to 3x a day 30 minutes before a meal). I started the. pill on 7-18-14 just 1day before my monthly cycle. Well I've been on my cycle ever since! Its now been 12 days! This is not normal! I stopped taking the pills 2 days ago. I've been experiencing a tremendous amount of blood clots. I am not pregnant, & I stand 5'3, 180, is it possible that these pills have caused these issues?? ## Hello, Jaya! How are you doing? Has the bleeding stopped, yet? Since over the counter products aren't evaluated for side effects, it is difficult to say whether or not the Lipozene may have caused this issue. How old are you? Are you on any other medications? Have you consulted your doctor? ## Ask your doctor before taking...
