Dear Chantal
It would not be a good idea to take 2 different diet tablets/capsules like Ciplatrim and Phedra Cut at the same time. You need to discuss any additional medications you may intend taking, including over-the-counter and herbal preparations, with the doctor who is prescribing the Ciplatrim BEFORE you take the other pills. Research has indicated that sibutramine (the active ingredient in medications such as Ciplatrim), can cause circulatory problems, and strokes in susceptible individuals. This is why sibutramine should always be taken under medical supervision. If you are taking sibutramine and then add other compounds which affect the heart and circulation, you could precipitate a crisis. Stick to one type of medication, preferably under medical supervision, your diet and the exercise to lose weight safely.
Take care
