I am gaining weight and can not seem to drop it.

Hello, I am a 19 year old female I m 5 9 and I currently weigh 150, but I usually weigh in at 125-130. I have been on Bupropion sr 150 mg for a little over a month now but it doesn t seem to give me much energy at all, I take it before bed it actually helps me sleep better. Any how I also suffer from crohns disease which I am currently not taking any medication for. However I am gaining weight and can not seem to drop it. I was considering taking oxyelite pro. I have taken it before with no problems but this was before the bupropion. Would it be safe to take it now ?

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Bupropion is for nicotine addiction and you have a crohns disease .But as far as oxyelitepro is concerned it is a fat burner some of the content are herbal but not all;also the interaction with other medicines is not known so it will be advisable to consult your treating doctor before starting oxyelite pro along with your other medicines to avoid any unwanted side effects.
Thanks

Hello Doctor. My son is 1 year and two months old, and weighs just near 8 kgs (birth weight was3 kgs). He is not gaining weight, but seems to be quite active, like other kids. Motions are also fine (at times he does not pass motions for a day or two, but would be fine once he eats something properly. He is too much into playing and running around. Should this be a cause to worry? His paed. has asked to put him on Cypon drops, but I somehow am not very convinced. Please help ... Thanks, Archana

I ve had this pain in the lower right side of my ribs for 4 days now. it s worse than it was the 1st day but about the same as yesterday. I can t exactly tell if it s my ribs or directly underneath. It hurts when i sneeze,cough,stretch,laugh. Hurts to touch it. I don t know if It s serious enough to see a Dr. or to just wait it out and let it go away on its own. Also, I had bronchitis last month. The coughing has almost ceased as of 2 weeks ago. But I still have a cough every now and again daily, but it s not bronchitis. It comes from my throat. I just recently quit smoking about a month ago. So the continued cough could be from that.

I have discovered yesterday that I am allergic to the generic wellbutrin....hives all over and taking benedryl. That I can deal with, however, I ve had chest pain pretty much nonstop. I have taken antiacids, but they don t help. I am not sure if a heart attack on a female (43) would go on so long. Had nausea as well. I had blood clots in my right lung in 07 that almost killed me. This happened a week after having jaw surgery. I ve was on blood thinners for a little over a year afterwards. How can a female tell the difference between bad indigestion and a heart attack?

I have had plantar fascitis for 4 or more years and have had surgery on my right foot. I started taking bupropion because I had to force myself to go to work and I ask the Dr. to for an antidepressant the would not make me gain weight. I am now retired and my feet have gotten worse not better. What major withdrawal symptoms can I expect if i decide to quit taking buproprion?
