Question: Zoloft and Hydroxycut

 kstrieter01 - Sun Feb 24, 2008 11:20 pm

I currently am taking Zoloft (every other day because i am weaning off of it) but wanted to know if there is any risk of taking Hydroxycut while taking Zoloft?

User avatar Hello,
Since Hydroxycut is a supplement; not a medication, we have no information about this. In the USA the FDA monitors drug interactions but the supplement industry is not included in this regulation. Purity is not monitored and scientific studies are often not available on them.

It is likely safe but I have no data to verify this.

Best wishes.
