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. Diets to promote weight loss ca...

I just started taking this medicine for weight loss. I am having hot flashes and cold chills, terrible headache and a tingly head. I feel awful. Has anybody taken this and had the same reaction? 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...

Contrave Dizziness and Disorientation
1 Reply RSS
Started Contrave 7 days ago. On the very first morning (2nd dose) I was so sleepy. Like exhausted-sleepy from shopping for 2 hours. The intense exhaustion seems to wearing off a bit, but there is something else. The dizziness is pretty bad, I'm disoriented, walk like I'm slightly drunk, have trouble focusing on anything. Like the buzzed feeling of being drunk, when you turn your head and your vision swims for a second? That's me. Has anyone else experienced this? It's annoying. How long do side effects take to wear off? ## Hello, Rose! How are you? Those can be normal side effects of this medication, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, nervousness and headache. Usually, the side effects should improve in a couple weeks, as your body gets used to a med...

contrave and sleepiness
7 Replies RSS
I started contrave 4 days ago, today being my 5th dose. every day, i take the pill about 8am and by 9:30-10am I am so sleepy I can't stand it. Days 1 and 2 I managed to fight it off until about 12-12:30, day 3 until about 1-1:30, and day 4 I fought it off until 3pm. If I take a 1-2 hour nap, I wake up fine, with energy and then cannot get to sleep until about 2am, sometimes 3am. Today is day 5, I'm having that "drunk" feeling and sleepy, but no where near how it has been. It seems this effect is slowly wearing off, but I haven't seen anywhere where this is a common side effect. I know all medications effect everyone differently, so I'm wondering if this is something I should be concerned about, or just another side effect that I will get used to as the weeks go o...

These products NO longer work ~ People need to STOP purchasing the weight loss trio !!!! Ingredients in the product were NEVER natural ingredients! ## After the FDA recall of the products (because some of the ingredients were considered medicine), it is true that some people stopped seeing results for a few of the 28 products Healthy People Co. had. This year in January 2013, the release of the new products with new powerful herbal ingredients are working great and people are beginning to enjoy and see results again. I am using the Everlax, Goji-Man, Nectar Ancestral, Green Oxygen and EverLim Gel which give me energy and keep my immune system strong. I am a teacher so using these products just make me feel energized, alert and feeling healthy all day. If you haven't used the new pro...

Contrave Evening Dose

I'm starting my 2nd week on Contrave tomorrow and the prescription says to take 1 in the morning and one in the evening. If I take the morning dose around 7 a.m., what time should I take the evening dose? I haven't been able to find any information on how far apart the doses should be taken. Thanks. ## Hello, Bobbye! How are you? It's usually taken at meal times, so with breakfast and dinner, but are supposed to avoid taking it with a very high fat meal. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## When exactly should I take the medication? Everything I read so far only says with a meal....but does it mean before or after the meal? I was wondering if it made a difference. Th...

bought in Belize as a diet drug, white oval with lowercase de or ap ( epending on how you look at it) on 1 side,a sort of celtic looking knot on other ## did you ever figure this out? bought the same thing ## @jeff, Unfortunately I haven't come across any specific details depicting such a pill on the internet, but one theory is that "ap" could potentially stand for "Adipex-P" (also known as phentermine) - a common weight loss medication. Any thoughts on this? Did your diet pills also come in any sort of bottle with a label that might confirm the name of the manufacturer/ingredients or were they more loosely distributed when you bought them? ## I purchased to but they don't seem to do much? She showed me the box but they were loosely distributed.. ## I bought some...

Contrave and alcohol consumption
9 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...

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...
