Yes: there should not be a problem with the two but the phenteramine is contraindicated in pregnancy. If you as trying to conceive I would stop the phenteramine unless you are on birth control.

I had unprotected sex and am on lo loestrin fe. I also take wellbutrin, (bupropion) topimarate, phentermine.Can the meds lower effect of bcp & could i be pregnant?
Not impossible: Not likely unless everything was just 'so'. The time of ovulation, if in your case the Topiramate did lower the effectiveness enough, etc. The other meds don't present a problem. So, if you miss a period - do a test and find out if the happened. Learn your fertile time and use protection then - consider alt to either the seizure drug or the pill. Discuss choices w/ our Dr. Best! ...Read more
Before I found out Im pregnant I was taking phentermine. could I harm baby? I was 8 weeks pregn. when I found out. I was taking it for month probably
Maybe: Phentermne is a derivative of methamphetamine also known as "speed" which is used as a "diet pill" to "speed up your metabolism". The problem is that the du]rug also speeds up the fetus' heart rate and can cause cardiac issues in mid to late pregnancy. Since this was taken in early pregnancy it is unlikely to produce problems, but your OB MD will need to be told of your use. ...Read more
Hello. Does a blood test detect sooner than a urine test? Since PMS & pregnancy share same symptoms I can't tell. I'm 47 & on hormone supplementation, phentermine, bupropion & other meds. Period due in 9 days. Have had ectopic pregnancy & miscarriages &
A serum HCG might: detect pregnancy a few days sooner than a urine HCG, but, by the time you get to a doctor to have it drawn and then wait for the results, you might as well do a home urine pregnancy test. If you do the test right after you wake up (when the urine is most concentrated) it's quite accurate. You can do the test as soon as 7 days from today. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Serious risk!!!: If sertra means sertraline (zoloft), then sertra taken with Phentermine potentially increases the toxicity of the oher significantly, thus possible life-threatening reaction (serotonin syndrome) can occur.

Phentermine not safe: Phentermine is not safe to take. It does not lead to true or permanent weight loss. It is a trick and will only delay you adopting the only true lifestyle that leads to healthy weight loss. Besides bariatric surgery, the only other scientific and safe medical way to lose weight is to limit the calories and change the composition of the diet to mainly protein sources and to do regular exercise. ...Read more
No: Phentermine is a raw stimulant which does not burn energy or increase metabolism. It increases heart rate, causes vasoconstriction, increases blood pressure, increases the possibility of cardiac arrhythmia, and causes loss of appetite. It would be dangerous even without a heart-related health problem, so you definitely shouldn't take it if you're on procardia (nifedipine). ...Read more
I'm taking zererid, and zantac (ranitidine)....Is it safe to take phentermine also? I need something to help me loose weight along with diet .
Diet Pills: Please, please do not start on phentermine. This will in no way lead to long term weight loss. It is dangerous for your heart. It is like lying to your brain and you will not face the reality that weight loss with exercise, limiting calories and possible approaching bariatric surgery are the only options that can lead to good and long term weight loss. ...Read more
I wanted to know is it safe to take phentermine with birth control and does it decrease the effectiveness of the birth control when using phentermine?
Why triamterene?: Phentermine is a weight management med. Triamterene is a diuretic used for hypertension or too much fluid in the body. It is not a weight loss med. A patient may lose wt--just water + some electrolytes--it is supposed to be potassium-sparing. This med could be used for another med condition but not routinely used as a weight-loss combination, there could be alterations in your blood chemistries. ...Read more
No interaction: There are no clear contraindications to the combination. ...Read more
Is it safe to take sertra 100mg and phentermine 375 together. Have had conflicting answers and not sure if it is safe or not?
Safety of both meds: The reason you have heard differing opinions is mixing sertra and Phentermine creates a theoretical risk of a severe & possibly life threatening reaction called seretonin syndrome. I don't believe Phentermine plus an ssri would cause a problem since Phentermine is a noradrenergic agonist. The reason for concern is that fen-phen (no longer on market) rarely caused this due to the Fenfluramine part. ...Read more
