Phentermine with antibiotics

Common Questions and Answers about Phentermine with antibiotics


Avatar_n_tn I'm in the process of switching to a new dentist and the new patient form I had to fill out asked "Have you ever taken any combination of the drug known as 'fen-phen'. This includes phentermine (Adipex, Fastin, etc) and/or fenfluramine (Pondimin)." What does it matter if I have taken this? I haven't taken fen-phen, but I have and do occasionally take phentermine?
Avatar_n_tn Phentermine, as many other prescription drugs, works with neurotransmitters in the brain. It is a centrally-acting stimulant chemically related to the amphetamines. It stimulates neuron bundles to release a particular group of neurotransmitters known as catecholamines; these include dopamine, epinephrine (also known as adrenalin), and norepinephrine (noradrenaline).
Avatar_f_tn Food wise, we really eat healthy. Morning we have oatmeal with raisin and cinnamon with milk we do not add sugar or honey. We share a apple and a bannana and we have a tad of cottage cheese on a half tomatoe. Lunch we usually have a sandwich mostly peanut butter n jelly sometimes tuna etc. At night we mostly have a nice fresh salad and our meat dish. Meat us usually baked in the oven on racks or bar-b-que.
Avatar_n_tn The nodule in your lung may have nothing to do with the gastric bypass and may or may not have anything to do with an infection that presently exists. Depending on what the surgeon sees, he/she may order other tests or simply ask you to repeat a CT of the lungs in the future. The surgeon is a good next step.
Avatar_f_tn As I got older I educated my self, I found out that the industry pumps the poultry and cows with antibiotics and hormones; As a result the product change texture, flavor and most importanly it tranfers all those hormones and junk to us. Same with vegetables and fruit. My extended family back home eats well and the maintain good figures. On the other hand, I batle with 50lbs overweight. I know to eat organic but is expensive and I will keep trying. I hope, I answer your remarks!!

2040468_tn?1330993569 I’ve had incredibly oily skin on my face and scalp since puberty as well as terribly heavy periods, though generally not that painful. At 21, I went on the pill to help with the horrible periods, which had gotten even heavier over time. I went from losing weight (trying to get into better shape) to immediately gaining, had my face breakout in acne, started growing facial hair, and completely lost interest in sex (and before hubby and I were like bunnies). Ok, so that pill was not for me.

921323_tn?1268679412 In the past few weeks, we have seen sibutramine (Meridia) pulled from the shelves due to an increased risk of heart attacks, and now lorcaserin (Lorqess) has failed to pass muster with the FDA because of concerns about cancer.
4873770_tn?1360342828 Just as you are about your trip, I'm frustrated about what plans to make with work - the unknown with this disease is doing my head in. I plan for the worst but hope for the easy - it will go away with no treatment option. I'm also going to start looking at the natural/alternative therapies seeing as conventional medicine seems to be unclear - happy to share experiences/successes/failures. Regards, Sam (also Missy Higgins fan!
465121_tn?1207838426 In the mean time for this month, I have a stress test and a consultation with the Thoracic surgeon, Dr. Neri Cohen. I also have a follow up with the dietician, and Dr. Moe. The diet is going good so far. I am down about 10 - 12 lbs which is really good. Unfortuately, I have not noticed any change in the shortness of breath as a result of the weight loss . Until next time........good night!!! Thursday, May 8, 2008 These last 3 days has been dealing with my husband's issues.
2016728_tn?1328362441 It is a good idea to essentially keep a running diary in your head of what you have taken (did you just finish a course of antibiotics or take some cold medication, etc? -if so when?), along with anything that you think may be relevant to the test or that you are concerned may cause an inaccurate result. It is better to be safe than sorry. As things get more regulated and harder on patients and clinics, it is best to be safe than sorry. I apologize if my post seems insensitive.
Avatar_n_tn or confusion, severe dizziness, or severe headache (which may indicate a blood clot in the head). A small percentage of female patients treated with HCG have developed the ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first cycle of therapy. Symptoms of OHSS include severe pelvic pain, swelling of the hands or legs, abdominal pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, low urine output, diarrhea, and nausea or vomiting. OHSS can be fatal.
Avatar_f_tn I feel light-headed and off balance at time, tremors in my hands and muscle twicthes when seated, when standing I feel like there is some tingling in my arms and legs. I am have trouble with my short term memory and difficulty with concentration. I get random headaches and nosebleeds that can last up to a couple hours. my whole body aches and is sore. The fatigue is progressively getting worse.
4873770_tn?1360342828 D and spent a total of 8 weeks on different antibiotics. When I got diagnosed the antibiotics were stopped (they weren't helping and every time that the pus that was draining was cultured it didn't grow an bacteria). When I got the diagnosis I actually was starting to do a little better, no more abscesses were developing so my treatment at the time was do nothing and wait.
Avatar_n_tn I took ephedra for years before they yanked it, now on limited amount of Phentermine. So my question is, for 7 months I used the LA party drug cocaine. I got a new job and moved away. On top of all the other **** using does, did it effect my CBC?
Avatar_n_tn I would also obtain testing for H Pylori, a bacteria associated with ulcers and gastritis. Treatment is with antibiotics. Another test to consider would be a 24-hr pH study to evaluate for GERD. If this is positive and medication is not helping, then surgical options may be considered.

405614_tn?1329147714 She was on IV antibiotics for quite a while, then they wanted to send her to a nursing home rather than send her home with a prescription of EXTREMELY expensive oral antibiotics. She had a discussion with the hospital about them GIVING her the staff infection (long story, but true), and before long, she went home with her oral antibiotics. I think the hospital paid for them, not the insurance, but I'm not sure.
Avatar_n_tn I took Phentermine and B-12 injections with my doctor. I would go once every three weeks. The week I got the injection I would lose more weight (about 4 pounds) and 1 pound the other two weeks. Keeping consistent with my diet and exercise. So while I did not experience extra energy as I believe a lot of folks are looking for with the B-12 shots, it did increase my metabolism and increased my weight loss. So while the experts feel you should only take for deficiencies, I've seen results.
Avatar_n_tn I also have a problem with my weight. I am 160 cm tall and weigh 320 pounds. I cant deal with the diets anymore because Im not losing enough weight. I will have surgery to remove most of the excess pounds and then begin a diet to change my eating habits. I have thought about it too just like you, I cant face the people staring at me anymore. I developped Agoraphobia complex with time. I am going to jd healthcare clinic to undergo a liposuction.
Avatar_f_tn I have been at 100mcg of the rx for years now. I got sick in Feb of this year with bronchitis. Bad reactions to antibiotics, yada yada. Could not seem to recover over the months that passed. I'm angry, shaky, lost 60# and can't stop! I know, shut up, right? Dropped in at my doc's office and they immediately ran a blood test. Doc has backed me off the rx because I am now hyperthyroid! All symptoms are Classic of hyper.
Avatar_n_tn Dexatrim,Cortaslim, NV, Zantrex 3 , Metabolife, Phentermine (15 mil) B4 taking SlimQuick I only lost weight on Phentermine with a dr's help, getting B12 shots weekly I lost 60 lbs. this way. However Dr's don't give Phentermine anymore, you have to get it online and pay a fortune for it. I have a 30 lb. goal by Oct.1st so I will keep going on this and see if I lose anymore. I feel good, no headaches as of yet (I am prone to migraines) P.S. I have not exercised but 1 day so far.......
Avatar_n_tn I too have just been diagnosed with H-Pylori. I just started a course of 2 antibiotics and a acid reducing tablet to clear it up. I was falling over to sleep an hour ago and suddenly felt light headed in my sleep and woke up. I have indigestion and was quite anxious for an hour or so after waking up. I even had dull pains in the chest area. This has happened a few times over the past few months, Iwent to A&E in the middle of the night twice.
Avatar_n_tn I was diagnosed in Oct., 2008 with caratidinia and given steroids and antibitics. It helped. BUT my concern is that 2 months later, i went to my doctor with a cough that I just cannot control and now pain on the opposite side exactly like the right side and he tells me I have it again, on the other side. I THOUGHT THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RARE??????? so how did it come back so soon and now on the opposite side? I refuse to go back to reg. dr., he can refer me to another doctor.
Avatar_n_tn very very good post..and well said.. "It will release the nutrients and water from fat cells (adipose), a natural occurrence in pregnant women, but in doing so, it reduces the size of those fat cells. In conjunction with a vlcd," well a VLCD with out HCG does the same thing..FACT.. its energy in..vs out..when you eat to lil for the body..the body will release fat from fat cells to mkae up for the defficit ..and to think your going to trick the body so simple..
Avatar_n_tn Instead, I'm finding this muscle relaxant Soma and minor-league amphetamine Phentermine, together with the good tunes, to be quite a hoot. I think of all the posts I've read from so many of you describing the agony of withdrawal, something I know well, and yet here I am "cheating" with these substitute drugs.
Avatar_n_tn Does anyone know if Zoloft can deter the weight loss? I have been struggling with my weigbt for so long and have heard of people having such positive reults from Topomax. Any advice from anyone?
Avatar_n_tn but meds affect people in all different ways I just started taking it for pcos and insulin resistance has only been a couple days so far so Ill let you all know,but pcos cause weight gain and the insulin resistance causes the pcos so the insulin resistance is treated first with metformin which should help with the weight loss because you need to loose weight in order for the pcos to get better and the resistance problem goes away......................
Avatar_n_tn I am also AMAZED that a DOCTOR would actually say that this isn't dangerous, or that it isn't the PAXIL!?!? Are you kidding? How much were you paid to say that? Paxil DID help with my panic attacks. Did not cure or stop them, but helped. Then getting off of it, or trying to was ABSOLUTE HELL! I can't walk because I'm so dizzy I can't keep my balance. My head feels foggy and cloudy. My head also hurts and it feels like someone keeps hammering a nail into my eyes.
