Reduce 15 Mg
100 Replies RSS
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...

i have only been on propranolol for about 2 weeks now but i feel like i need to stop taking it as ive read and heard it can be dangerous. i take 2 x 40mg a day. i am only on it to stop the symptoms of my hyperactive thyroid so its not anything bad to do with my heart. ive read online that coming off them suddenly may result in angina or heart problems so i dont want to risk it. has anyone got any advice on how to gradually come off them? i was thinking of taking half of one twice a day instead so it would be 20mg twice a day which is half of what i take now. would that be a good way to do it or has anyone got any other solutions? i am a 17 year old female with type 1 diabetes as well. thanks! ## Hello, Jasmin!

I am taking hydrochlorothiazide 25mg once a day along with Losartan, also 25 mg. Should I take these together at the same time or should I take them at different times of the day for the best effect. I currently take one of a morning and the other at night. ## You can take them as it is convenient for you, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise, just make sure you are consistent and don't miss doses. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Will this hurt me, should I call my doctor? As stated above I accidentally took a double dose of 25 mg for a total of 50 mg . Please advise. ## Hello, Gayla! How are you? That is not a dangerous amount to take, but there is a chance it could cause your blood pressure to drop lower than normal and you may become dehydrated, according to the FDA. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, and headache. It would be best to inform your doctor, to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with?
