Probably side effects of Duromine, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to side effects of Duromine.

This medication is used to speed metabolism and help you lose weight.

This medicine may also increase the blood pressure .

This can be the cause of your blood discharge.

It can also cause cramps similar to period pain.

In my opinion you should stop the medication and consult your doctor about these side effects.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
