Thanks for writing to us.
Taking the weight loss supplements like oxyelite pro and phentermine are not safe during the pregnancy. Their safety profile is doubtful and the risk for pregnancy is not known. It is best to avoid these for now.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
