I'm using metformin to lose weight, when in the day should I use this pill and what abt the dosage, is it ok if I use orlistat with metformin together?

Not indicated: Metformin is a drug used to manage hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus. There are some unlabelled uses of metformin, such as prevention of type 2 dm and management of polycystic ovary syndrome. Although it can help you lose weight, the amount lost is usually modest. Diabetics usually take it with a meal to decrease GI upset. I don't know of any contraindication to use with orlistat. ...Read more

I am currently taking nordette and i will like to know if this pills wont have effects to my reproductive by the time i want to have kids and also after taking this pills i become sleepy and tired, is this one of the effects of nordette?

No to sleepy.: Most of the reversible methods of contraception available today offer a prompt return of fertility after discontinuation. After stopping the pill, a woman may expect an average delay in return to fertility of 3 to 6 months. If you are taking OCPs and feel tired, non-motivated and less interested in sex than you used to be, you might be experiencing low testosterone. It does not cause sleepiness. ...Read more

If I agree to start taking 1mg Fluanxol again which I know made me pack on weight before... is there anything I can do to prevent the weight gain :( ?

Not specifically.: You can only gain weight if you eat. The medication can make you feel better so that you feel more like eating but it does not specifically make you gain weight. If you take the medication and watch your diet and do some regular exercise you should counteract the effect of any weight gain. ...Read more

Do diet pills affect the effectiveness of birth control pills? I am contemplating taking hydroxycut max for women to help jumpstart my metabolism along with exercise and eating right but i wanted to make sure that it would not negatively affect my birth c

As : As far as I am aware diet pills do not interact with birth control pills, however you may wish to ask your gynecologist for another opinion. It sounds like you are on the right track with exercise and eating right. You may want to try this first before starting a diet pill. By eating five to six small meals a day you can jump start your metabolism. Also consider seeing a nutritionist for a dietary consultation. Best of luck. ...Read more

I am taking the diet pill  slim quick. It is not helping with my apitite I want to eat all the time what diet pill is the best over the counter?

None: There are no diet pills either over the counter or by prescription that are effective. This is especially true if the goal is sustained and permanent weight-loss. This fact doesn't sell products or books and you won't see it on a late night infomercial. Unfortunately, at this point in time watching what goes in (calories) and increasing output (exercise to burn calories) is all there is. ...Read more

Both : Both the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud and the ius are the same type of device; a long-acting hormone device placed in the uterus. The effectiveness is for 5 years. Having initial pain and bleeding is normal. The first weeks are painful and the patient usually needs initially a stronger pain medication and then milder medication such as ibuprofen. Irregular bleeding usually occurs for 2-2 months and then the patient usually has little to no bleeding for 5 years. Risks of the device include expulsion (the device coming out, which is rare), or infection. Most women do not have weight gain. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy and i'm currently taking estradiol. I gained an extremely amount of weight. What can I do to lose weight. Is the estradiol the ca?

Wt gain: Some people develop a stronger appetite when they take hormones. Also, there are other hormones such as thyroid, testosterone and Progesterone that if out of balance can make wt loss difficult. Nutrition however is number one. Check hormone balance, stop Phentermine as it doesnt work once you stop it. Plus when you skip meals because of the phentermine, you lose muscle more than body fat. ...Read more
