Hcg Diet On Adderall
Yes, but: The diet has been tested and even dr. Oz withdrew his support for it.. The diet is extreme and unhealthy and may cause nutritional deficiencies that can even cause depression. I do not endorse this diet and the fda, webmd, and the british medical system do not support it either. ...Read more

I am on t3, (liothyronine) testosterone, progesterone, metformin, and phentermine... 1200 cal diet, cannot lose weight- tried everything-why not?
Your opinion on HCG diet injections? is it HCG that makes you lose weight or the 500 calorie a day intake? Is it safe to take with wellbutrin (bupropion) & Zoloft
Will I gain weight if I (slowly) go off 100mg topamax (topiramate)?I'm on wellbutrin&I eat a strict healthy vegan diet.
How about exercise?: I was waiting to hear "and get on a GREAT REGIMEN of EXERCISE. Weight control is contingent upon eating well, eating only for the body's needs not the brain's, & giving the body plenty of opportunity to burn excess calories thereby improving conditioning and general wellness.

Are tyrosine supp. Helpful to replenish dopamine after Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) use on days i don't eat enough protein (dietary sources of tyrosine/phenylalanine)?
Good luck!: I show the generic (phentermine) still as a prescription-only medication. So, whatever is in the over-the-counter version is not likely its true namesake, or potentially in a very reduced strength--either of these may not give you the results you are hoping for, and toxicity risk. Phentermine can show in urine drug screen for 10-14 days per internet resources. ...Read more

Possibly: Triadalean contains multiple stimulants including various phenylethylamines, theobromine, caffeine, and guarana.

Triadalean has strong potential to cause jitteriness and anxiety, with little support for effectiveness in weight loss. ...Read more
Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms
Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more

The combination of diuretic is generally considered safe, but as I said, get your potassium level checked. ...Read more

Also you may have some food sensitivities or exposure to toxins that causes difficulty with Insulin resistance. A functional medicine or holistic/integrative medicine doctor may help you with elimination diet to check on this. Also, "burst" interval training may help. ...Read more
Serum Creatinine level 2.56 to 1.59 in 2 weeks after starting on prednisone and discontinuing benicar (olmesartan). Is this artificial due to 10% weight gain?
No: Creatinine is muscle breakdown product that is excreted through kidneys. It is affected by muscle mass or renal function decline but weight gain does not affect it.

Sibutramine effects: Despite being advertised as a "natural supplement", the effective ingredient in Jadera is sibutramine. This is a weight loss drug that was taken of the market in the U.S. in 2010 because of side effects: it raises blood pressure, increases heart rate, and is hazardous to anyone with risk of heart disease or stroke. It also cannot be used with certain psychiatric drugs. Metformin is not an issue ...Read more

Of course, it is good to avoid carbs (especially those with rapid absorption like white bread, white pasta, and sugars). Some people believe that too many fats are allowed on the atkins diet. I have also found that people have a hard time staying on this diet for long. We focus on veggies, fruit, and protein. ...Read more
