Risk factors.: Contrave has Wellbutrin (and Naltrexone). Phentermine is in numerous nootropics and raises concern. Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate) combines Phentermine with Topiramate. There might be some concern as Topamax is also used with mood lability. Your personal and family medical history may contain safety concerns for prescribers. Ask for their reasons.

Obstructive defects block the normal flow of blood through the heart and its associated blood vessels. Septal defects cause "holes" between the heart's chambers. And hypoplastic defects make one side of the heart smaller.
