Who should not take Meridia?

nervosa should not take this prescription drug. Meridia should not be taken by
individuals who have recently (within the previous two weeks) taken any prescription
medicine that is classified as an MAO inhibitor (including the antidepressant
medications Marplan, Nardil, and Parnate). Additionally, if Meridia causes the
patient to have an allergic reaction, he/she should not take it.
Additional Special Warnings
Patients with uncontrolled high blood pressure should use Meridia with caution,
as it could compound this problem. Individuals should avoid Meridia completely
if they've had a stroke or suffer from heart disease, heart failure, irregular
heartbeat as well as severe kidney or liver problems. Seizures are rare but still
a possible side effect. Patients who have suffered from seizures in the past or
have narrow-angle glaucoma or thyroid problems should use Meridia with caution.
Patients that experience a seizure while taking Meridia should contact a doctor
immediately. Patients that are prone to gallstones should be aware that weight
loss can cause more of them to form.
It is reported that Meridia has not been tested in individuals under 16 years
old and it should also be used with caution for patients over the age of 65.
