Is Oligo Care Tablet Effective?

My doctor prescribed the oligocare tab. I have a sperm count of 28 million motility. Should I take this tablet? ## Oligocare is a nutritional supplement, it is given to help with fertility issues in men, because sometimes a lack in the vital nutrients it contains can contribute to fertility issues, such as a low sperm count.

fell pregnant while taking xenical

I found out I was 16 weeks pregnant on xenical. Could that have harmed the baby? ## Hello, Cathy! How are you? Congratulations! It is recommended that it should not be taken during pregnancy, by the U.S. FDA, to because of evidence of harm, but due to the fact that weight loss offers no benefit to a pregnancy woman and could harm the baby. It would be best to inform your doctor that you were taking it, to be safe, but the risk of harm this early on is very low. Is there anything else I can help with?

Fake Orlistat capsules

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...

xenical 120mg

Need to know when these expire. The ones I have are dated 2005. Are they fake?? I took them years ago and they are suppose to stop my body from digesting fat. It sure gave me greasy stool. ## Hello, Karen! How are you? Are there any markings on them? That is what would enable me to check more details on them for you. However, generally most medications expire one year from when you received them from your pharmacy, due to the fact that they degrade over time and slowly lose efficacy. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, anorexia, headache, runny nose and loss of voice.

could you take dinitel an xenical

Hi i want to no if its safe to take dinintel and xenical at the same time ## Hello, Lissy! How are you? No, it would be best to just stick with one or the other, since they both aid in weight loss and both carry some possible risks. If you're trying to decide which one to use, then you should know that Dinintel is considered dangerous and is not approved in most countries. Xenical, however, is approved and sold over the counter in many countries, now. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness and fecal incontinence. Is there anything else I can help with?

However, it must be used with a low-calorie, low-fat diet to work properly and to avoid stool leakage. You can learn more Xenical details here. Are there any questions or comments?
