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...

Contrave / side effects
2 Replies RSS
On Contrave six months and lost 44 lbs. I have also lost a tremendous amount of hair. I am female. Anyone else have this problem? ## Hello, Helen! How are you? The FDA does list that as being a possible side effect of this medication, though it is not considered a common one. Other side effects may include nervousness, dizziness, insomnia, and indigestion. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have also lost a lot of hair taking contrave. Shocked how much. It is the Wellbutrin component of Contrave that is the cause. The dose of Wellbutrin in contrave is way at the upper limit of dosing for Wellbutrin if you were just taking Wellbutrin alone. I did not come across this side effect much when I read about Contrave prior to taking it but after the hair loss started I took a second l...

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...

wanting to quit taking contrave

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...

pink pill with BI62 ## Would like information on availability. Or is it still made? ## It is still available in the US, most commonly sold under the brand name Bontril. ## Im looking for a doctor that will give me bi62 for weight loss . I took this pill over 20 yrs ago. it was great. ## I would like to get some pink pills BI-62 over the counter. ## Dont confuse phenmetrazine with phendimetrazine. The first is the active ingredient in Preludin (long ago discontinued due to abuse). Phendimetrazine is the active ingredient in Bontril (close cousin to the phenmetrazine but a schdule III controlled medication with much less abuse potential and available freely under many different names). ## I HAVE TRIED EVERY WEIGHT LOSS PROGAM PRODUCT THERE IS AND THE BI62 Was the onlt product that seemed ...

Itching from Contrave
15 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? Has it improved, at all? ## I have cut the dosage in half (one pill in the morning and one in the evening) and no longer have the itch...

Looking for a doctor who will prescribe adipex or phentermine. I have insurance too but looking for anyone. ## Platinum Care Physicians - Dr Bouier, Dr Michelle Calhoun, 27207 Lahser Rd, Suite 250, Southfield, Mi (248)-967-3200. It was $90. for 30 - 37.5 Phentermine + 25mg Zoloft - they used to be on Greenfield in Oak Park. I've been going to them for 5 yrs. There are also 2 other online websites, which I have not tried - "drtohelp" where it sounds like they do a webcam consultation, and "absolutelythin" which is more expensive-you have an in office consultation with one of their local affiliated doctors, then they send you the pills I think. In the 1990's I used to go to Union Lake Clinic 8080 Cooley Lake Rd in Union Lake. In the 70's and 80's, I went to...

If so did it pass after a few days? Gotta say this...I am not ever hungry! Like to hear from anyone that has taken this med.Thanks :) ## hi jen! 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...
