Meridia Weight Loss Pills - Precautions

Discuss Meridia Fully With Your Doctor

You must consult your doctor before taking Meridia weight loss pills. Some drugs or medical conditions may interact and/or interfere with this medicine. Inform your doctor of ALL prescription and over-the-counter medications you are taking.

For example, Meridia weight loss pills should not be used in combination with other drugs used to suppress appetite, or within 14 days of taking a drug classified as an MAO inhibitor. The combination could lead to extremely serious health risks.

Meridia may also interact with a wide variety of other drugs, especially weight-loss pills, decongestants, anti-depressant medications, allergy drugs, and cough suppressants that contain ephedrine, phenylpropanolamine or orpseudoephedrine.

Meridia may also adversely react with excessive alcohol intake.

Also, explain to your doctor any other medical conditions you have, including allergies, pregnancy, or breast-feeding.

Maintain regular contact with your doctor while taking these weight loss drugs.

Do not share Meridia weight loss pills with others. In particular, store Meridia diet pills as directed and keep them away from children.
