Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss pills while breastfeeding


Avatar m tn What diet pills can you take while breastfeeding? Before I was pregnant i was taking SlimQuick i lost 60lbs in 3 months. but now i gained 70lbs now that ive delivered.
Avatar n tn Suggest not trying to loss any weight while breast feeding a child even if it is a limited time. Your weight is only about 10lbs over for your height which you will lose after breast feeding and taking care of your son. Walking him in a stroller, daily, will help you lose the weight (after you wean him off your breast), instead of using fat burners that could be medically harmful to you.
Avatar n tn I'm a diabetic, and I've been on metformin for years and have never heard of it being used for weight loss. I have not lost any weight while I was on it, unless I was doing something else, as I am now. In fact, metformin usually can make one gain weight. If you're on metformin for DIABETES, no, it's not forever. But don't come off it without your doctor's guidance. If you lose weight, as I have, your dose can be lowered.
10314571 tn?1428119818 Have a calm atmosphere and don't be afraid to tell people to wait to visit the first week. You have to have that time together to bond and figure feeding out. I asked for space and only grandparents could visit at the hospital. Give it a week.
Avatar n tn I'm a 27 year old female, I was on effexor for approximately 10 months. It did help a little for a while, but eventually stopped working. My dosage was 75mgs. My doctor would have had me increase my dosage, but I can see where this is going, so instead I decided to stop taking it. All my life I've been slender - I'm 5'6" and before Effexor my weight was 124-128 lbs (summer/winter). While on Effexor, my weight went to 138-140 lbs.
208164 tn?1189759432 I do plan to breastfeed, however, I'd like to take dietary supplements to help me lose weight. Has anyone taken any while breastfeeding, if so, what have you taken? Thank you.
Avatar n tn There is a clinic near Orlando in Winter Park called Transformations Weight Loss Clinic. The staff there is great. I took the shots for a little while but didn't notice any significant weight loss, so I stopped going. Maybe you'll have more luck. They also have an office in Metro West. They can be found online. Hope this helps!

1402796 tn?1282213884 My breast before just had loss of tissue from my previous pregnancy's and weight loss....I was a 34B now a 34 DD (400 cc)....I paid R 15000.00 . Other than that i am excited to be having my 3rd baby even though it is one hell of a age gap as my daughter is 16 and my son is 8 going on 9 in December, and i turn 36 on the 28th of this month...so yes was not planned ............
Avatar f tn Hi, yes, I am gaining while breastfeeding. I am afraid it is due to my not controlling my eating like I should. However, if you are following reasonable diet and unexplained weight gain you need to see your doctor to get your thryoid checked. It is quite common to have thyroid problems after giving birth. I also have hypothyroid, but I can't blame that for my weight gain, only my own self. hope this helps.
659957 tn?1224857787 With the first pregnancy, I was told to wean off of the Sub- bad idea. I ended up going back on pain pills (yes, while pregnant), but THANK GOD I soon found an awesome doctor who agreed to put me back on the Sub. for the remainder of the pregnancy. I was able to get by on only 1 mg. of Sub. a day during that pregnancy. I gave birth to a full-term, VERY healthy baby! He was not "addicted", had no withdrawals, and is extremely intelligent and advanced for his age.
Avatar f tn If you eat more than you burn you won't lose weight but if you eat a healthy diet and utilize reasonable portion control then the calories burned by breastfeeding will help with weight loss.
443968 tn?1288616289 I am stuck at 155 and can't get it out. Need to lose another 30 pounds to go back to my original body weight. Any weight loss ideas, pills, diet, etc....
Avatar n tn Has anyone had any trouble with weight gain following a miscarriage and D&C? I have actually gained more weight since the D&C than I did while I was pregnant. I'm wondering if it's a hormonal issue. It has been about 3 weeks since the procedure and I haven't started a new cycle yet. Any advice?
Avatar f tn I'm super stressed I don't want to gain too much weight and diet is almost not an answer.... I wonder is there's any weight loss pills I can take that are safe while pregnant.
Avatar n tn i also am thinking of getting off welbutrin. i know that it is every other day to get off the med but how long to you go every other an also when do you start every 3rd day. how long does it actually take to eventually dose down to nothing.
Avatar n tn I definitely wouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. You can start being more aware of what your eating and try to do some exercises approved by your doctor. I wouldn't start a strenuous workout routine right now if you're not used to it but walking is always good. I'm happy to say I lost all my baby weight pretty easily after my daughter was born and am pregnant with my 2nd. This pregnancy I knew what to expect and have had a much slower and healthier weight gain.
Avatar f tn been on a strict diet - thinking that I would start to lose weight or atleast my weight would stabilize. I continued to gain weight at a rate of 1.5 - 2kgs every few months. To make matters worse, I injured my back in Oct 07 - so it's been like a double whammy as far as trying to lose weight! I too had a constant period (since about 2003) while I was hyper (undiagnosed & unaware).
Avatar n tn Anyway, I almost throw up on my first drink. But I am okay. I just hope that I loss the weight. I'm currently 183-19something (not quite sure). I want to be at least 140-145. So I'll keep everyone posted. Also I need you guys help with all this. Till next time.
Avatar n tn I am thinking about doing the hcg thing. I couldnt take diet pills or anything while breastfeeding but now I am looking for help. I cant eat any less that I do and get out of bed and take care of the house, the baby and work out. I just dont have the energy as it is.
Avatar n tn They also encourage resistance training to develop muscle mass although it will not provide any clinically significant weight loss. Weight training helps develop muscle mass which expends energy more efficiently. Lifting weights on a daily basis is not advantages unless you develop a routine that uses different muscle groups, such as bicep, triceps, shoulders one day, then abs, quads, etc on a different day.
Avatar n tn I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the weight loss is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound weight loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
Avatar f tn dispite watching my diet and excercise I gained over 30kg during the pregnancy, and then a few more while breastfeeding (despite having NO time to eat much at all).I bought an expnsive "assisted diet program" nothing. I stopped breastfeding, and went to a weight loss clinic. the prescribed phentermine and took some blood tests, suspecting hypothyroid. I took the medication,and it was like a fog had lifted. I felt "normal" for the first time in years.
Avatar f tn of Tapazol and my levels are either too high or low, never where they should be. I may have to do radioactive iodine. Can weight loss be achieved with this treatment? I hope you can answer this for me. I hope this site isn't too old. I just found it. Thank you in advance.
1580318 tn?1550258081 So I've been researching Green Coffee pills. It's shown to have great results in weight loss. If you're unsure of what green coffee is, it's coffee beans before they're roasted. So I'm just wondering if anyone has used it? If so, what kind of results did you see?
Avatar f tn Keep in mind that I am a woman, 59 yrs. old, so weight loss is always harder for a woman and especially for an older woman like me! But at least my clothes fit again and I like myself a lot better now. Best of luck you you!
2011481 tn?1374266267 Honestly speaking no diet supplements/pills can actually help you lose weight in a healthy way. Most fail to cause weight loss. Even if they are helpful in losing weight, they make you lose weight by suppressing appetite, causing indigestion, preventing absorption of nutrients, and other such drastic routes. Though you lose weight, the weight loss is not healthy. Also, if you have PCOD or hypothyroidism or adrenal gland problems or diabetes, then also, you may find losing weight difficult.
Avatar n tn ) You have to watch what is in some of these vitamins, pills that aide in weight loss they can increase your heart rate.. My dh swears thats what gave his mom a heart attack she was taking different pills to loose weight...
720228 tn?1530914879 I was on Micronor (mini pill) when I was breastfeeding. I know that you have to be quite accurate with those pills, about when you take them (exact same time each day) because they are not nearly as effective as the combination pills, seeing as they contain progesterone only and no estrogen. I've switched to a combination pill and, although you should be aiming to take these at roughly the same time each day, it's not as important that you do so.
