    Hi Everyone!
    I just received my order and am very excited to begin and share! However, in reviewing the ingredients, while “natural” my concern is with two and whether or not they would interfere with a low doze of Sertraline (generic for Zoloft). The ingredients are Tyrosine and rhodiola; both mood enhancers. Before I return everything, does any one else out there have the same concerns/situation? Would love to hear from you! Thanks! Gayle Miller

    Hi Gayle. I cannot speak for Zoloft. But I take the generic for Prozac (Fluoxetine) and have had no problem.

    Gayle, I strongly suggest that you talk to your pharmacist and doctor. I called my pharmacist and she went through all ingredients in the drops and all the medications on my list. My list was fine and I do take Zoloft.

    However my mental health became very unstable on the diet and I was forced to stop by doctor’s orders. My doctor recommended doing the diet at 1400 calories minimum.

    For me I have not started the diet up again.

    I also friended a person on this diet with mental health issues and she also quit the diet because of issues she was having. I believe she was getting muscle cramps, her hair was falling out and she was getting depressed.

    If you choose to stick with the plan as they recommend please be aware of any signs and symptoms that might arise with your mental and physical health.

    For me, I have decided that a slower weight loss (or even no weight loss) is preferable to poor mental health.

    Good luck to you! I hope you contact your medical professionals just to be safe.

    Hi Vanessa,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. I take a low dose of the generic for Zoloft for anxiety attacks but I certainly do not want to mess around with the amount of serotonin released in my brain as I’ve now read that could pose many problems! And only on Sertraline for 2 mos., my anxiety attacks are under control. To be honest, I am a health food/nutrition addict and read all types of books, diets and information on nutrition. I really know what I must do to lose these 10 nagging pounds and as you stated, for me, slow and steady is probably the safest way to go. Good luck to you on your journey and thanks again!
    My best regards,
    Gayle Miller
