use of antagolin
I really would like to start using this Antagolin product but I just need to make sure that I can take it with my anit-deppressant (Cypralex) and my energy booster Geri-complex. Would you be able to advise me on this

Dear Michelle
Antagolin which contains Insul-X2™ 200 mg, Bana-ba leaf extract (Corosolic acid 1%) 500 mg and Alpha lipoic acid 150 mg per 2 capsules, is a complementary medicine and I have not yet read any results of scientific studies that it is safe and effective. I would recommend that you discuss the use of this product with the dr who has prescribed your Cipralex because some herbal medication can interfere with the working and efficacy of pharmaceutical products. It may be safer to use a low-fat, energy-reduced diet and plenty of aerobic exercise to lose or control weight. The exercise will also improve your depression, so it is worthwhile trying.
Best regards
