Prozac and Kybella

Thank you for your question chloelattman. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. There is no evidence to show that Prozac or other SSRIs interfere with the recovery or results of Kybella. But it is a good idea to share your complete medical history including prescription medications with your doctor.

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

There is no research to show that taking Prozac will interfere with your Kybella injections. Regardless, I always think it's a good idea to let your injector know all of the medications that you are currently taking.

Prozac with Kybella treatment

There is no evidence that taking an SSRI like prozac can cause adverse changes to the submental region that was treated with Kybella.

Prozac is fine with Kybella

There is no known interaction between Prozac and Kybella.
It is safe to be on Prozac during the treatment.

Does taking Prozac (fluoxetine) while doing KYBELLA affect the recovery or result???

Hello Chloelattman,

Prozac should have no impact on your Kybella treatment.  The most common side effect of a Kybella treatment is bruising, so drugs that thin the blood can affect the recovery (but not the result).  

I hope this helps and good luck.

Kybella and prozac

Kybella is a non-invasive injectable treatment that can reduce unwanted fat under the chin.  No medications should effect its results since its mechanism of action is related to breaking down the actual fat cells.  Blood-thinning agents could increase the chance for bruising, but other than that it is unlikely that any medication would have a positive or negative impact on the result.

This should have no bearing on your Kybella treatment.  Kybella is a very effective product to treat the double chin in 1 or 2 sessions.
