How safe is it to take the oral homeopathic hCG drops to lose weight.  Everyone seems to be losing a lot on it. My friend joined "shape reclaimed".

Not recommended: Homeopathic HCG was taken off the market in december 2011. The fda and ftc issued warning letters to multiple companies selling these products for making unsubstantiated claims. http://tinyurl.com/mqklddh homeopathic HCG differs from products given by injection, which are still on the market. Besides the daily injections, a 500 calorie diet is also required. The HCG supposedly prevents hunger. ...Read more

Should i test homeopathic hCG drops using a OTC pregancy test?

Should i test homeopathic hCG drops using a OTC pregancy test?

No: Homeopathic remedies are prepared in very minute quantities. Otc pregnancy tests are likely to give unreliable results detecting so-called "homeopathic hcg." also, this form of HCG is not an approved homeopathic remedy and the fda withdrew it from the market in late 2011. http://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm282334.htm. ...Read more

Can homeopathic hCG drops cause DVT or bloodclots?

Can homeopathic hCG drops cause DVT or bloodclots?

Accordingly, there can be no actual effect of any sort. ...Read more

Can homeopathic hCG drops cause DVT and pulmonary embolism?

Can homeopathic hCG drops cause DVT and pulmonary embolism?

No: No, it can't. The homeopathic diet aid you're referring to isn't the full strength hormone, it's much less than 1/1, 000 of the normal dose. The only way there would be a concern about DVT or pe would be a rather rare occurrence of clotting and that typically only happens when you get larger doses that react adversely with your hormones as reported at http://www.Drugs.Com/hcg.Html. ...Read more

I'm currently on lamictal (25mg, titrating over 2 months to 100). Would it be safe to take homeopathic hCG with this? Am also on dextroamphetamine and methylphenidate and just can't lose weight!

Homeopathic HCG: Homeopathic HCG won't interact with Lamictal or your other medicines, but it's questionable whether it will help you any. In fact, in 2011 the fda & ftc removed these products from the market because of making deceptive claims in their ads. They are now illegal. http://tinyurl.com/85ap9ym this is not the case with traditional homeopathic remedies which have been in use for 200+ years. ...Read more
