Duromine with Other Medications

Last updated on May 23rd, 2018

People who are willing to begin a Duromine treatment course should consider all the risk factors beforehand and consult a doctor first to check whether the drug will not produce undesirable and dangerous effects.

Thus, talking to a doctor is inevitable before the first medication intake. Inform your healthcare provider about all the other medicines that you are currently taking. Some drugs taken together with Duromine may cause devastating side effects, while others can produce no effect, due to the high potency of this weight loss aid that blocks their action.

Age, body weight and gender can influence how Duromine will suppress appetite and how fast you will lose weight, although only slightly. Interaction with other medications, including those, which are sold without a prescription, may have a strong influence on Duromine effects.

If you are using Duromine with other drugs, negative effects of interaction can be:

  • Reduction in the appetite suppressing effect.
  • Enhancement of previously appeared side effects.
  • Creation of a newunfavorable reaction not previously seen before.

Drug interaction does not always lead to suffering and other negative consequences. When the medications are introduced at the same time, in accordance with the doctor’s advice, the results of the interaction can be:

  • Increase in thebeneficial effects of Duromine
  • Reducedside effects.

Duromine is an appetite suppressant, which stimulates the central nervous system and increases the arterial pressure. Without consulting a doctor, Duromine should not be used with any drugs, especially those that affect brain activity and blood pressure.

Before starting pharmacotherapy for overweight or obesity, tell your doctor if you are using or plan to use:

Anti-hypertensive drugs

  • Bumetanide
  • Furosemide
  • Diltiazem
  • Verapamil
  • Captopril
  • Lisinopril
  • Valsartan

Psychotropic drugs

  • Alprazolam
  • Sertraline
  • Citalopram
  • Fluoxetine
  • Lorazepam
  • Trazodone
  • Escitalopram

Sympathomimetic drugs

  • Dopamine
  • Adrenaline
  • Pseudoephedrine
  • Methylphenidate
  • Modafinil
  • Ephedrine
  • Amphetamine

Drug interaction with anti-hypertensive drugs results in a significant increase in the likelihood of problems with blood pressure, vascular integrity and heart function.

Concomitant use with drugs that affect the central nervous system can lead to the emergence of a wide range of mental, neurological and emotional disorders.

Thyroid hormones combined with Duromine increase the stimulation of the CNS. At the same time, Duromine can increase or decrease the amount of hormones produced by the thyroid gland. If the anti-obesity agent is administered to patients with a thyroid disease, they may need to re-test the function of this gland.

Drug interaction usually occurs when drugs are administered simultaneously or in quick succession. However, if medicines are extracted from the body at a low rate and influence the body functions over a long time, they can influence the action of Duromine, even if no longer used.

Tell your doctor about any medications that were used recently.

Duromine should not be taken within 2 weeks after discontinuation of MAO inhibitors (antidepressants).

Such interaction can cause serious increase in blood pressure and stroke!

It is not recommended to take alcohol with most medications, and Duromine is not unique in this regard, so do not use these together. Consequences of Duromine interaction with alcohol include panic states, dizziness, restlessness, tremors and other CNS or cardiovascular side effects.

Duromine can interact with alcohol, including if the patient:

  • Swallowed the medicine with alcohol.
  • Consumed alcohol after
  • Took a dose afterconsuming alcohol.

Duromine does not interact with insulin, but this drug combined with a diet can affect insulin requirements of diabetics. Therefore, diabetics on Duromine may need to re-calculate the dose of insulin.
