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...

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.

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. I have noticed that in the past 4 months I went from 60 mg to where I'm at now 95mg and I've gained about 15lbs. I've also did a lot of research on losing weight being on methadone and it'...

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?

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 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...
