Hi,

Duromine 15 contains phentermine that is an amphetamine type central nervous system or CNS stimulant is used to treat weight loss. On the other hand, Concerta contains methylphenidate that is also a CNS stimulant is used in the treatment of ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Although there is no known interactions between Duromine and Concerta but it is unsafe to combine these two medications.

Both these drugs have side effects of their own and can amplify each other's side effects, leading to more life threatening complications if used in combination or every alternative day. The risk of heart attack, sudden death or stroke rises with one medication and multiplies with two, as both drugs are CNS stimulants. You can only take them if your doctor advises to do so.

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

Regards,
