Reduce 15 Mg
A frien od mine gave som slimming pills called Reduce 15 mg that he bought in Thailand. They are not allowed in the country where I live, so I can't consult my doctor. I'm healthy but I have suffered from stress due to too much work, and have been medicated for that a couple of times, though not currently. I'm not fat, but I have gained 20 kg due to stress. Do you know which secondary efects these pills could have or if I should take them at all? ## From what I can find, Reduce contains the active ingredient Subutramine, which has been pulled from the market in many countries, due to the severe dangers associated with it. It can cause cardiac related dangers, such as: accelerate heart rate, trouble breathing, elevated pulse and elevated blood pressure. There have been some i...

what will happ en if i accidently took 2 losartin tabs when should have taken just 1
I take losartin am & pm. I take 25 mg. I accidently took 2 at the pm time. What will happen. ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you experience any adverse symptoms? Generally, if you just took one extra tablet it isn't going to have a very large effect. Your blood pressure may go a little lower than normal, but this medication does take time to reach its full effect in your body, so for any severe issues to occur, you'd usually have to take extra regularly for several weeks. However, if your blood pressure and heart rate did start to go lower than normal, you may experience some dizziness, severe drowsiness, trouble breathing and if you do, then you should seek medical attention. Is there anything else I can help with?

i take 1 pill per day and i have weak urine, leakage, right side of scrotum swollen the size of an orange for over a year now. also anal hemoroid problems. i am 66 years of age. it also seems that i can not relax in this area ## Hello, Norm! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, I really doubt that they are all results of the Metoprolol. Have you consulted your doctor about these symptoms?
