User avatar Hello
Almost all drugs have the potential to react when taken together and Acomplia is new enough that interactions are not really known. I can only advise you to talk with your doctor about this. There have been reports of serious side effects including depression and the bad news is that in most cases weight loss achieved was regained after stopping the drug. Some have said their appetites were reduced while on the drug but then it came back with a vengeance.

We still have not found a perfect weight loss drug.

Best wishes.
