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...

small round pink pill labelled phentermine

the label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many websites but most phentamine pills are white and blue. can anyone help me identify this pill ## Are there any markings on the tablet? If there aren't, it is going to be impossible to positively identify it. There are just far too many possibilities. It could be an over the counter item or a supplement. I am sorry, I wish I could be of more help. ## There are no details on the pill but I do know it is an appetite suppressent and the bottle said phentermine ## My friend has just come back from a slimwise clinic she has been given some round pink pills and there are no markings but have phentermine on the front ## hi i am taking the same pills small round pink tablets with no markings but was p...

phentermine 37.5 mg. LCI 1445
1 Reply RSS
Does this pill (phentermine 37.5 mg. LCI 1445) require a prescription? ## Hello, Rubi! How are you? Yes, in the U.S. Phentermine does require a prescription, due to the fact that it is a stimulant and should only be used with a doctor's approval under their supervision. Taking it improperly, or taking it when someone suffers certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, could put someone's life in danger. The FDA also warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

ifa norex availability

I'm wanting to know where I can find ifa norex? Can you help point me in the right direction and how much does it typically cost? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? I'm sorry, but IFA-Norex is not available in the U.S. Such medications require a doctor's prescription here. It is listed as containing Diethylpropion, which according to the FDA is used to aid in weight loss. Its acts a stimulant, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and insomnia. The reason it requires a prescription and doctor's supervision here is due to its potentially being habit forming and the fact that stimulants can elevate heart rate and blood pressure, so if used improperly, or by people with certain other medicati...

can I take belviq before bedtime

Can I take the Belviq before bedtime will it affect my sleep? ## Hi Kelly, From what I've researched, the manufacturer's dosing instructions that are listed in the Prescribing Information, state that you're supposed to take one 10mg tablet twice daily. It doesn't specify if any of the doses are best taken at night or during the day. However, if I were to adhere to these instructions, it would make sense to take one in the morning hours and one in the afternoon or evening hours in order to spread out its effects throughout the day; unless instructed to do otherwise by your doctor. Not being a patient, I don't know if Belviq has a stimulating effect, but if it does, that would probably be best determined in the morning dose so that you can get a feel for how it works e...

Fake Orlistat capsules
117 Replies RSS
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let you all know that you need to be aware of fake Orlistat pills being offered for sale as generics to Alli. I bought what I thought were generic Alli 120mg but was sent blue capsules filled with a white powder instead. I know for a fact that the active ingrediant in Alli (Orlistat), is actually small white bead-type drug. So, what is this powder? Only God knows! I've written my letter of complaint to the on-line pharmacy concerned, but no reply. I will see about getting my money back. ## Sorry to hear about your experience when ordering this medication. However, it is important to note that not all manufacturers are going to use the same manufacturing process when making any given medication. Rather than the bead type, they may use a different release...

ceti slim
2 Replies RSS
sliming tablet ## Hi Priyanka, How are you? I didn't notice too much information in your description. Is there something in particular that you want to know about this slimming tablet? From what I could gather, Cetislim (Cetilistat) is reported to be used as a treatment for obesity. According to wikipedia, it works by inhibiting an enzyme in the GI tract that metabolizes triglycerides. This, in turn, allows triglycerides to be excreted or pass through going undigested. I hope this info helps! ## I want to know about cetislim capsules .Are the capsules steroid based? if not what's the side effects and when it occures ?somebody told me about that side effects will be seen after some years and there will be no medication forts it. Is it true?

Not yet adjusting to Contrave
8 Replies RSS
Into my second month on contrave. I have experienced every side effect. Irritable, ringing ears, vomiting, lack of libido ect..ect. I have lost weight but at a high price. I hope hope hope my body will adjust to this torture. ## You should try Belviq, it has a much friendlier side effect profile ## @Jojo, I'm not sure how long it's supposed to take for your body to adjust to the effects of Contrave, but after two months of it not working as expected I'd be hard pressed to expect anything different out of it. That's just me though. I realize some medications such as birth control can also take a long time to become fully effective as well; and if that is the case with Contrave this may just be an extended waiting game. However, on the other hand - if the side effects aren...

Fentermina/Axcion 30mg
52 Replies RSS
I have been taking Fentermina/Axcion 30mg faithfully since April 2008 when I was 32yrs old and 5'4-5'5 and weighed in at 185lbs. I'm 33ys old now and to this day I weigh 147lbs. I haven't been this small since 2005. At the beginning I used to have really bad side effects such as really bad migraines, insomnia and so forth. Now a days, I only have dry mouth and am very thirsty. My headaches aren't as bad as they used to be and my insomnia either. I have no complaints especially because it's helped me suppress my appetite and helped me lose so much weight. I have been taking 30mg and take it once a day in the morning and by the time I'm ready to go to bed, I'm drained and ready to go to sleep with no problems. ## i'm trying to get a hold of some phenter...

weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what r they for. ## WELL THIS IS A DIET PILL THAT WAS TAKING OF THE MARKET IN TH U.S. BACK IN 1989 FOR THE REASON THAT IT WAS HURTING EITHER UR LUNGS ECT. IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply. In most cases, you can get away with carrying small amounts, around 3 months worth or less, of a drug into the US, without having it seized or questioned by customs. Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...
