Does Duramine cause protein in urine?

Hello Dr.. I just wanted to find out, I m on Duramine 30mg tablets and this is my 3rd week...with great results Im seeing!! Yesterday night I took a urine dipstick test and it indicated traces of protein.. I m worried, is this caused by the tablets? Is it flushable if I drink water? How dangerous is this and if I should continue taking these pills?

hi hope to guide u in a better way
every drug has some kind of side effects but it does not mean that duramine is responsible for you protein has also side effect but very litter ones like headache,bad taste in mouth etc etc . regarding your situation if you have a problem of raised blood pressure or u are diabetic it can also cause protein it's fine to take it.its not responsible for your condition.
hope u got my point.
