I am a 50 year old female.My weight is 58kg and I am 1,69m tall. I knoe I do not need to diet but I am a diet freak.I am currently taking Duromine and eltroxin as well as adcoretic and I exercise 4x a week...running and doing weights.I feel terrible when I muscle strength out of breath,in short...I suffer! I am worried about my heart as I get chest pains as soon as I push to hard.Can I just stop taking all these tablets at once.

Levothyroxine and phentermine. Combining these medications may increase the risk of cardiovascular side effects such as high blood pressure, palpitation, chest pain, and irregular heartbeat.

If you have preexisting heart disease, your condition may worsen. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications.

Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

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

Take care

Hi, I was just prescribed Duromine to suppress my appetite and lose a bit of weight. I have also gotten a prescription for Champix to cease smoking. I wanted to know whether it would be okay to take both these medications at the same time? Im also on the birth control pill Diane 35. Thank you

Hey there, my doctor prescribed me Diabex (metformin) a few weeks ago, after having a initial adverse reaction (itchy rash) he told me to stop taking it. However I had experienced this type of reaction when I started on acne medication in the past. So I kept taking it, luckily with no other reactions. He has recently prescribed me with Duromine, I have not taken it yet as I am still reading up on it. I really just wanted to know if it is okay to take Duromine & Metformin together?
