Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. Dieting is often used in combination with physical exercise to lose weight, commonly in those who are overweight or obese. Some people, however, follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight. Diets to promote weight loss are generally divided into four categories: low-fat, low-carbohydrate, low-calo...

1 Reply RSS
What is it? White oblong pill with tiny blue specks, scored and the the markings of K 35 on one side and plain white on the other side? I was told it is phentermine by a weight loss clinic. Is it? ## Hello, Rusty! How are you? Is the marking possibly K 25? If so, this tablet is manufactured by KVK Tech and yes, they do list it as containing 37.5mgs of Phentermine. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, anorexia and unpleasant taste.

Allergic Side Effect

I started my 3rd week on the 21st and on the 24th i was awaken around 2:30AM with a bad itchy rash on back of my neck and ears. Went to the Dr and he had me stop Contrave and put me on steroids, as it may be an allergic reaction. On the 26th my hands were so swollen and red, and even hurt/burned when touched. my right eye was also swollen. Is it possible it could be due to the increased dosage? I want to get back on it, as it works very well. no other side effects till this. I've lost 9#;s since the 7th. ## Hello, Steffy! How are you? No, your doctor is right, those symptoms do sound more like an allergic reaction, which most likely means you won't be able to go back on this medication, since such reactions usually tend to get worse repeated exposure. However, there are other we...

Will my DR / Pharmacist fill my refill after my BMI drops
Post a Reply
Hi - My Dr prescribed Belviq after several years of healthy eating and exercise with nothing but a slow weight gain. Took all the necessary blood work / tests to rule out anything else. It's working so far but now I've dropped enough weight after one month that I'm just below the 30 BMI now. I go back to see my DR in a week for a weight in and to get a refill but am worried that either my DR or my Pharmacist won't fill it now that I'm below 30. I've read everything possible and don't see this answer out there, and all I see is the statement that Dr can prescribe if a patients INITIAL BMI is above 30, does that mean they can continue to refill / write additional RX after I'm below since I started above? I really haven't lost that much weight and am no whe

Dosage after taking a break from Contrave
Post a Reply
I took Contrave for about four months and lost 10 lbs. Decided I would stop and didn't take it for a month. I immediately started craving sweets again and started gaining weight, so I decided to start taking it again. Got a refill today but not sure if I should start over, with the minimum dosage, or go back to the maximum dosage. Or maybe somewhere in between..maybe two a day? I also seemed to develop a bit of a tremor when I was taking the medication and that got better when I stopped. However, I am diabetic and don't want to gain a lot of weight again.

I have also been taking phentermine for about 2 months now, and yes, the medicine can be great, but the side effects aren't always pretty. when i first started taking them, i had a headache, was super thirsty, and felt like i could crawl out of my skin! I now only get an occasional headache and still deal with the insomnia. what dosage are you on? maybe you should start small, say 18 mg and then move on to 30 when that doesn't work anymore, then 30.7 (...

Need to know when these expire. The ones I have are dated 2005. Are they fake?? I took them years ago and they are suppose to stop my body from digesting fat. It sure gave me greasy stool. ## Hello, Karen! How are you? Are there any markings on them? That is what would enable me to check more details on them for you. However, generally most medications expire one year from when you received them from your pharmacy, due to the fact that they degrade over time and slowly lose efficacy. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, anorexia, headache, runny nose and loss of voice.

I need to know how to stop taking contrave. Can I just quit cold turkey or do I wean off? If I wean off how do I do it? ## Hello, Janice! How are you? How long have you been taking it? Why do you want to stop it? The FDA lists Contrave as being used to aid in weight loss and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. Have you consulted your doctor? It does require slow tapering for some people. ## I was looking up how to wean myself off of Contrave and found this comment on here. I've been taking Confrave for about a month or so. I just started the 2 pills in the morning and 2 pills at night dose Sunday (today is Friday). I've felt horrible all week since increasing it. Hot flashes in my face, horrible nausea, glands some...
