Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight. In other words, it is conscious control or restriction of the diet. A restricted diet is often used by those who are overweight or obese, sometimes in combination with physical exercise, to reduce body weight. Some people follow a diet to gain weight (usually in the form of muscle). Diets can also be used to maintain a stable body weight and improve health. In particula...

How long will it take to lose 20 pounds on Contrave?
3 Replies RSS
Hello. I am just on day 2 of Contrave and was wondering, as I only really need to lose 20 pounds, is this the right drug for me? I don't mind if it takes a few months. I just need to stop sugar and carb cravings that I have had which added these 20 to my 5'2" small frame. At my height, that's a whole new wardrobe that I don't want to buy. ## There is no set schedule anyone can give you, since we are all different, plus it depends on your diet and activity levels. The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia, and anorexia. How are you doing on it? Can anyone else that's taken this medication chime in? I'm currently converting most of wardrobe to Lularoe clothing, not because I need to, just because I ...

I have been on Contrave for 7 months. It started out great. I've lost 70 pounds and it controlled my appetite well. Over the past month, I have noticed it has stopped controlling my eating habits and I am starting to crave and eat like I used to. Is it possible that your body becomes immune to Contrave?

Could you take the Lipozene if you have high blood pressure? ## My blood pressure become very high at times, is it safe for me to take lipozene , I'm kinda afraid, don't know what to do,please help. ## Can u take lipozene while taking high blood pressure medication norvasc 2.5mg ## This medication is a supplement, so it has not been approved by the FDA, nor has it been proven to actually aid in weight loss. Thus, there is no way to say if it is or is not safe with any given medical condition, or any given medication. The manufacturer, which is listed on the website as being Obesity Research Institute, states that it contains a natural fiber that absorbs water in your stomach to help you feel full faster. However, that can cause problems with some medical conditions, for instance...

It was seen on tv to help get rid of belly fat and I was wondering what the side effects of this drug are? ## I am looking for success (or failure) stories from people who have tried Lipozene to lose weight. ## On Lorsartan, Bystolic & Amlodipine Besylate - also Crestor & Zetia - can I take Lipozene without any problems? ## Can I take lipozene with benazipril for my high blood pressure ## Lipozene is a supplement that is manufactured by Obesity Research Institute, according to the product website.

Their claims state that it contains a natural fiber that absorbs water, which helps you to feel full faster, since it's claimed to e...

bi 62 preludin

Image of bi 62 preludin ## they don't make it anymore, but the generic of Bontril (phendimetrazine) is awesome. Scientists tinkered with the chemical formula to create phendimetrazine and it's quite close, and really effective if you take enough. 35mg. pills should do the trick. ## Yes, this brand name is no longer available, but there are some generics available, so your doctor should be able to prescribe something equivalent. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

Itching from Contrave
36 Replies RSS
I have been taking Contrave for three weeks and have developed itching on the insides of my hands and the bottoms of my feet. Has anyone else experienced this? ## Hello, Arlie! How are you? Do you have a rash, or just the itching? Contrave has been known to cause a rash as a side effect, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia. Are you on any other medications? The itching could be due to a circulation problem. ## No rash. No other meds. Nothing new besides the Contrave. ## There's a chance that it's affecting your circulation, which can cause itching. Have you had it checked out by your doctor, yet?

Contrave and alcohol consumption
40 Replies RSS
I have filled my prescription of Contrive but have not yet started taking it. I read all the possible side effects and am weary about taking in and wanting to continue to socially drink (glass of wine, socially drink on weekends) ## @pnj, According to's drug interaction checker, there ARE potentially dangerous interactions between Contrave and Alcohol. These statements go on to note the following: Consuming alcohol with Bupropion (one of the active ingredients in Contrave) may lead to an increased risk of seizures, decreased tolerance to alcohol, muscle spasms, confusion, and changes in cognitive awareness. For those reasons mentioned above, I would not encourage anyone to take the two together or even within the same day. Hope this helps! ## OK, I read the notice about alco...

trying to find the Bethel s30 pills that are light & dark green in color. I HAVE USED THOSE PILLS BEFORE AND CAN CONFIRM THEY DO WORK!!! not really comfortable using something i'm not familiar with. Can you assist with assuring i purchase the proper capsules? thank you!!! ## No, I'm sorry, but I have no way to assist you with that. The original Bethels 30 product was ordered removed from the market by the FDA due to the fact that it was found to contain the undeclared drug ingredient Sibutramine. Sibutramine was removed from the market due to the fact that it caused the risk of cardiac events. Is there anything else I can help with? ## If you are interested in purchasing any Bethel products, please contact 212-568-5330. ## I need to know how I can get the slim k pills.. Can ...
