Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated and supervised fashion to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight, or to prevent and treat diseases, such as diabetes. 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. Diets to promote weight loss...

Fentermina and Acxion

Just wonder what type of medication this was? ## Now I don't know what Acxion is but I do know that Fentermina is the same as Phentermine, a diet pill which reduces the appetite. Maybe Acxion is something along the same lines? Good Luck! ## I WAS TAKING ACXION (FENTERMINA FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS AND LOST 59 LBS IN JUST 4 MONTHS. YUP I SURE DIID FROM A SIZE 12 TO A SIZE 2. I FEEL GREAT AND I AM SO ENERGETIC. I AM ALWAYS ON THE GO GO GO. I AM NO LONGER TAKING THE PILLS, BUT I WOULD BUY THEM ACROSS THE BORDER, JUST 28.00 FOR THE BOX OF 30 PILLS, 1 PILL A DAY. GOOD-LUCK..... ## Is this diet pill for women only ? Acxion Fentermina ## How can i get the acxion pills? ## In the US, this type of med is prescription only, so you would need to see your doctor to get it. ## I also use Acxion and get...

Contrave and smelly urine

OMGOSH... I can not believe I am asking this, but.... I am on month 4 of Contrave and my urine has an odor. I have looked at the side effects and I do not see that as one of them.... Does anyone else have this issue or is it just me? ## Almost any medication can cause such a side effect, according to NIH studies, since you are adding a new chemical to your body. However, if you start experiencing other symptoms, such as pain, burning when urinating, or blood in your urine, please see your doctor, as soon as possible. Are you on any other medications? ## I’m having the same issue. Going to see doctor to make sure it isn’t another problem, but I’m almost positive it’s the Contrave. Started about a month in as well. ## Yes, yes, yes. I am entering my third month on ...

Contrave and Vomiting

I have been on Contrave for 3 months. I have battled nausea all along, hoping it would go away. I've lost 15 pounds. The pill seems to make everything taste bad. Coffee, spicy food, even just scrambled eggs taste bitter and gritty. I didn't have any other side effect. This past week, the nausea has moved on to vomiting. I've used Tumms and Dramamine as well as a prescription anti nausea med on and off for all three months. I truly feel poisoned. I feel ridiculous that I have used this knowingly for 3 months and endured feeling sick. I've spent a lot of money and feel terrible even a week after stopping the drug. Please don't take this. I feel that fairly soon enough folks will complain enough to take it off of the market. ## I dont feel that it should be taken off th...

contrave and sleepiness

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...

Weight loss pill ## how do you take these pills and what are 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 someo...

Redotex NF

weight loss ## This is a Mexican diet drug, thus illegal to have in the U.S. The U.S has issued warnings about it and are severely cracking down on its import. ## I read the post from the 80's-90's. I took them anyhow and lost the weight. After taking the pill I was active and started eating healthy. I let myself go and regained the weight, there were other factors involved in my personal life as well. I was however able to maintain my weight for almost 2 years before I went back to my poor eating habits and stopped going to the gym. Since I live in a border town Redotex is extremely popular on both sides of the border for weight loss. Verwon are you a customs or INS agent? I only ask because you keep stressing what is legal and illegal. ## No, but since some people are not awar...

Killer Headaches

I'm on Contrave almost 3 mos and lost 29 lbs...that's the great part, but lately I am getting the worst headaches, usually over one eye . Lately I've been getting 3 headaches a week and all I could do is lay in bed. Sometimes ice on my head feels better or even the pressure from the pillow being on my head to block out the light helps. I went to my prescribing doctor and she said headaches are a side effect. Other than a headaches my only other side effect is dry mouth. My doctor said the headache should go away as this does happen to a few patients on this meds. Advil migraine doesn't seem to help so I really don't know what else I could take with contrave. If I wasn't on contrave this kind of headache would definitely be gone with a Vicodin! But I know I cannot...

I was unable to find acxion this time when I went to mexico. They gave me terfamex instead. I'm nervous of taking it because I don't know side effect. It also comes in capsule so I can't break it in half like I am use to with acxion. Anyone familiar with terfamex, is it the same??? ## Terfamex is the same thing as Axcion, the only difference is you don't need to break it in half because it is time released to last all day. :) ## Hello, Yes according to the NIH both terfamex and acxion contain the active ingredient Phentermine Hydrochloride. Terfamex actually does come in a tablet form that you can break in half like the axcion you are referring to but the one you received is a extended release capsule. This reduces the need to take two dosages a day but is inconvenient i...

Is Redotex from Mexico legal in Canada?

I'm visiting Mexico and can't find anything stating if Redotex is allowed into Canada from Mexico. ## Hi Ralph - I think that if you present it correctly you should be able to bring it back into Canada. There are a few speculations according to Canada Customs & Health Canada. First, do they sell Redotex over the counter out there, or would you be getting a prescription filled from a Mexican pharmacist or doctor? I'm going to include a bunch of information below that I found while researching the Canadian Gov't websites. I think the key takeaway is that your best bet is to present it as an over the counter product which you purchased while traveling. If, however, the label and ingredients are clearly not considered OTC, or if you will clearly have a prescription label...
