Can oxy elite pro cause any problem to the digestive system?

Can I damage/ ruin my thyroid by using oxy elite pro? I was taking it for a little while, and I ate healthy and worked out, and lost a significant amount of weight over a few months. I felt great! But then my stomach started to feel like it was having a really hard time breaking things down and digesting them. And I started to get extremely lethargic.

Hi,

OxyElite Pro contains multi ingredient nutritional supplements that acts as a thermogenic fat burner to slim down to ideal body weight. Its manufacturing company has claimed that OxyElite Pro can be used to decrease extra fat in the body, burn fat by its thermogenic properties, suppress appetite, manage body weight, keep the body fit and active by reducing body weight etc. But, FDA has found that this product contains Fluoxetine which is an antidepressant medication, used in depression, bulimia etc.

It is advised not to take any hormonal medications like thyroid medications, oral contraceptive pills etc., while taking OxyElite Pro. Because, OxyElite Pro can interact with hormonal products and decrease their full effectiveness. It may cause thyroid dysfunction too. Other side effects of OxyElite Pro are nausea, abdominal pain, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, jaundice, liver toxicity, fatigue, tiredness etc. You should not take any type of medication without consulting your doctor first.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Zubayer Alam, General And Family Physician
