Our expert says:
Although die package insert for Ciplatrim does not state that Glucophage cannot be taken together with Ciplatrim, you will have to ask the medical doctor who is treating you for the insulin resistance if you can also use Ciplatrim or if the active ingredient it contains, which is called sibutramine, will interact with the Glucophage. In any case, medications containing sibutramine have to be prescribed by a medical dr and the dr must first assess you, to check if you don't have high blood pressure, heart or circulation problems as sibutramine is contra-indicated in such cases.
I would also recommend that you consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to assist you with a balanced slimming diet seeing that you have insulin resistance and also need to lose weight.
