Coffee substitute: Chicory root appears to have no known adverse interactions with any drugs. It may cause skin, respiratory, or intestinal allergies and it may induce uterine contractions...therefore it is not recommended in pregnancy. So if you are not pregnant or allergic to it, taking it with Prozac (fluoxetine) may be OK. ...Read more

I bought green coffee premium 1 yr ago, is it expired now? And what is the side effects of using such drug?
You should be able to find an expiration date somewhere on the bottle but I expect it is still good and safe to use even if a bit past the "expiration date" (which is generally not that accurate). The only side effect might be getting a bit hyper from the caffeine but it only has as much caffeine as 1/5 cup of coffee. See

Overall very limited data is available in this regards. Best of luck. ...Read more

Are there any known risks or side effects to taking green coffee bean supplements for weight loss?
If you swallow anything that provides a stimulatory effect (caffeine products) or that induces mild nausea (coffee grounds), then you can expect to lose your appetite and therefore lose weight. These are not "fat burners" or "metabolism speeders" (there is no such thing), nor are they healthy.
See your doctor for a healthy diet that is right for you, and stay away from snake oil. ...Read more
I've had 32 fluid ounces of coffee, now I have cramping, and gas. Could the symptoms be side effects from the coffee?
Maybe: You may be sensitive to caffeine and that was quite a bit of caffeine. If you are needing a stimulant you may not be getting enough sleep or eating in a healthy way. This can all contribute to your bowels being irritable. Beans and emotional upset can also contribute to this. If this does not resolve there are many over the counter products to help with that problem. ...Read more
Hi Dr., I have been on phentermine for 2 months now. I love coffee and have stayed away b/c ive read up on of the side effects. Can I drink decaf?
Phentermine for: Weight loss is a stimulant and metabolism burner that by itself will cause more stimulant type symptoms than any coffee you can drink. I honestly don't think decaf will help any with potential symptoms, but I suppose it can't hurt either. You really should not be on phentermine that long; it would be naive to think that it is not causing any long term effects.. ...Read more
I want to know if there are any side effects in using pre-workout, green coffee extract and fat burner supplements?
Yes: It depends on the make up of the fat burner supplement. Many over the counter weight loss supplements have stimulants in them. If taken in excess, they can cause palpitations, trouble sleeping, nervousness, etc... I generally do not recommend supplements to lose weight as most are unproven and the best way to lose weight and stay healthy is just plain diet and exercise in moderation. ...Read more

Deep colored foods: Any deeply colored food or drink can stain the teeth and darken them. It's critical that you refrain from deep colored foods and drinks while whitening and for at least 24 hours afterward as well. To keep the white longer and yet not give up your favorite things, use a whitening toothpaste as long as it doesn't make you sensitive. ...Read more
