Diet / Weight Loss Overview

Dieting is the practice of eating food in a regulated way to decrease, maintain, or increase body weight, or to prevent and treat diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Dieting to lose weight is recommended for people with weight-related health problems, but not otherwise healthy people.[1][2] As weight loss depends on calorie intake, different kinds of calorie-reduced diets, such as those emphasising particular macronutrients (low-fat, low-carbohydrate, etc), ...

Alvalin Drops

What are these drops for? ## From what I've heard, the name of x112 drops medication has changed to "Alvalin" and you need a prescription over in Germany to get it; if it is even still available on the market. I believe this product is used for weight loss and there are actually a lot of popular threads on the topic of 'x112 drops' if you'd like to view more information on it: /Discuss/X112-liquid-diet-drops-164341.htm I hope this helps! ## Do you know when you are doing a drug panel, can it tell whether or not you are taking a substance based on amphetamine? ## Where or what pharmacy can you order Alvalin 40mg/g 15ml? Does it require a prescription? I understand this is a new formula replacing x112 drops. How much is the cost? Can someone help please? In 32 yrs ...

x112 diet drops from germany

Are these german diet drops still available? I know they worked. I knew a German gal in 1980. ## Yes, it's now called Alvalin. It costs €25 - I tried to get a prescription but they like to check your vitals before prescribing it. It will elevate blood pressure but it can be taken with blood pressure meds. ## I was in Germany in the 1990's and I use to go to a German Dr to get the b12 drops, but it comes in pill form too. ## From what I've been reading across other related threads here, these X112 diet drops stopped being available many years ago. It's interesting though that when something works really well it seems to either get banned or pulled from the market, only to be replaced by inferior alternatives with just as many if not more side effects. Has anyone man...

Stopping Contrave

How do you stop Contrave when you are at your goal weight? Do you go down in dosage or stop cold turkey? ## Follow the titration schedule in reverse. Just as you had to gradually increase the dosage you must gradually decrease it. ## At first I didn't realize that Contrave (bupropion/naltrexone) carried the risk of serious withdrawal symptoms associated with an abrupt cessation of treatment; similar to opioids, benzodiazepines, SSRI's, etc... Although with bupropion being an antidepressant I could certainly see how starting and stopping it might negatively impact the brain's chemical balance. But when it comes to naltrexone being an opioid antagonist (blocking the opioid receptors / endorphins) I had initially gotten the sense that discontinuing naltrexone under a cold turke...

I want to gain weight, with a good structure, hips and boots. please help me. what tablets can I starting taking?? ## I want a drug that can give me a good body structure,hips,buts in Ghana ## What medicine can i drink to gain weight fro South Africa Pretoria ## I want to know if I'm taking prescription drugs is it safe to take cb1 also ## @Chichi, gloss & lizzy, There are no drugs that directly cause weight gain. Only the amount of food you put into your body and the number of calories burned can determine whether you gain or lose weight. Perhaps it would be best to consult with a nutritionist or dietician who can assist you with meal planning. Incorporating various forms of exercise at varying intensities may also be of great benefit towards achieving the type of body/figure y...

Anyone on both medications and any side effects or concerns? ## Yes, there is a warning about combining them, according to the FDA, taking both has been known to cause Serotonin Syndrome, a potentially fatal condition. If you have been instructed to take them both, your doctor should be monitoring you frequently, and you should know to watch for any possible symptoms of it, such as confusion, twitching muscles, heavy sweating, diarrhea, muscle rigidity, high fever, and seizures.

Small round pink pill labelled phentermine

The label says 'phentermine' but it is a small round pink pill. I have searched many databases but most phentermine 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 wa...

It is the worst feeling ever!! ## i friend gave me one earlier today and i am having severe shaking, cold sweats, an...

Contrave not working anymore

I took Contrave and lost 52 pounds in 10 months, which has put me back to my ideal body weight. The problem is that it has not been working after that 10 months. I don’t have any side effects, but have a ridiculous appetite now. Almost to the point of wanting to binge eat. Anybody else been on it a while and have it stop working? I’ve gained almost 10 pounds back in the last few months. I’m not sure whether to ask my doctor about stopping it, but I’m afraid my appetite will be even worse. Anybody? ## I had the same problem. I was starving hungry and wanted to eat and eat. Weirdest thing was that I felt constantly hungry even after a week? ## You are not the only people who have experienced such issues. Most people who have tried it have reported eventually hittin...
