Can You Take Prozac 20Mg & Hydroxycut Hardcore @ The Same Time?
I Am Currently Taking Prozac 20Mg And Also About To Start Hydroxycut Hardcore To Shred Some Kgs And Have More Self Confidence. Do You Think These Two Pills Are Ok To Take Together?
No you shouldn't. The man-made chemicals in prozac along with the ingredients in hydroxycut can make you depressed, jittery and give you a feeling of possibly losing control such as anxiety, and may make you outright sick.
If you like to eat out alot or just plain eat period, try cutting out carbs and you'll lose weight as fast if not faster.
If you want 3 or 4 fried/scrambled eggs with bacon/sausage and some decaf coffee with heavy cream or half and half in it (no regular milk) and splenda (no regular sugar), then you've just eaten a low carb meal. The secret is to cut out all the "bread". For instance ask for a whopper minus the bread and ketchup with extra lettuce/tomatoes, no ketchup on anything. Have a cesar salad with the works (except carrots- too much sugar) and whatever kind dressing you want instead of the fries/potatoes. No rice, peas, beans or starchy foods.
If you want 10 tacos, remove the ingredients on the inside (including sour cream) and toss the shells.
You can have all the diet soda, water, tea, decaf coffee you want, but if you follow the Atkins diet you'll lose so quick you're pants will fall off and you'll get rid of other things like acid reflux, bloating, headaches, high cholestrol/sugar, hypertension, anxiety, and you'll feel great.
If you exercise you'll drop the weight even faster.
Also no fruit or fruit juices for the first couple weeks, then you can have strawberry's with whipped cream mixed with cream cheese, low carb ice cream which is delicious, and the Atkin bars are great for a sweet tooth (especially the chocolate coconut ones!).
Also no chips but you can have all the pork skins you want in place of chips.
Instead of a sandwich, roll deli meat up with cream cheese or mayo up in lettuce to make a wrap.
You can also buy the low carb tortillas which are great if you absolutely need bread but try to buy the small tortillas.
When you go out to eat, substitute the potatoes/rice for another salad or some spinach or green beans.
This is a cinch way to lose and still be able to eat lots and lots of foods and get your weight (amongst other things) down and not starve yourself.
I was at 176 and dropped down to 157 in 2 weeks. Seriously!
Try this instead of wasting your money on diet pills, especially if you're on prozac. I'm on klonopin and have been for 17 years, and as much as I'd love to take one of those over the counter diet pills, it's just not worth it. If you want to know what most of the diet pills feel like when you take them, just try drinking 3 or 4 cups of coffee. They make you jittery, nervous and cranky and sometimes have you pacing with a racy heart. Don't mess with your body that way.
Check out the Atkins New Revolutionary book at your local library or book store. It's informative and funny from the start.
Please be careful. Prozac doesn't get along well with diet pills. On the Atkins eating plan you can eat and eat all you want, whenever you want and still lose all the pounds you want and feel much better.
You can eat out at a restaurant or eat at home with this.
Hamburgers, fish, chicken, turkey, pork chops,salads with bleu cheese or ranch or italian dressings, taco salads without the shell, double cheeseburgers minus the ketchup/bread and a diet soda, just to name a few.
May even be able to get off that prozac too.
I've cut down my klonopin from 2mgs twice a day, to 1/4 to 1/2 now all because of the Atkins. I eat til I'm full, but feel good, and it's a good fullness, not one where you're holding your stomach wishing you wouldn't have eatin' so much.
Good luck and God bless you! Hope this helps you and others.
Does Birth Control Make You Gain Weight?
I have been on the pill for about two years now.During that time I have had a huge increase in appetite,which of course led to more eating,which led to me gaining up to 40 pounds.I do not blame all of it on the pill,but the appetite increase started when I switched pills.I have just started jogging to lose the wait,and I am fighting the appetite issue.I will continue the pills because I need them for a hormone problem,but I plan on stopping them as soon as I can.GOD-bless
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Masturbation For Males?
I Masturbate Like 4 Times Per Month(18 Years Old) And I Want To Know What Are The Disadvantage Of This Thing....Is This Is Abnormal Or Too Much For One Month Or It Is Good....Please Post Trusted Links.Thank You,Your Response Will Be Highly Appreciated.
There is no longer any doubt among doctors and therapists that the supposed negative effects of masturbation are false. It is a perfectly normal and healthy form of sexual expression. Ninety-five percent of men begin to masturbate at puberty, and many continue to do so throughout life without negative consequences.
Masturbation only becomes a problem if it becomes a substitute for other forms of sexual activity.
It is important however to masturbate in a way that will help you learn how to control ejaculation so that when you do have a partner premature ejaculation will not be an issue.
No man is born with the ability to control. Controlling ejaculation is something you have to learn just as you had to learn to control your bladder as a child. We get taught to control our bladders but no one teaches us how to control ejaculation.
The American Academy of Family Physicians confirms that: “Behavioral methods are helpful for more than 95 percent of men who have premature ejaculation.” So, if you have tried “exercises” and they have not helped it is because they have not been explained properly to you. Many of the treatment programs offered online have not been written by professionals.
Do not waste time or money on sprays, vitamins, herbs, dietary supplements or drugs. This is a learning problem and these things will not help you learn to control ejaculation any more than they can help you to learn to speak another language.
There are a lot of high-priced programs advertised online but all you need is the explanation written by a doctor and sex therapist that has been used successfully around the world for more than 32 years.
It is called "Lasting Longer: The Treatment Program for Premature Ejaculation" by Dr. Sy Silverberg M.D.

Metformin And Weight Loss With Pcos?
Back In 2008, I Was About 137 Lbs, 5 Ft 4.
I Started Feeling So Horrible, I Never Had Acne But My Face Was Covered In Acne Some How, I Tried Acne Free, Proactive, Every Face Wash In The Markets. And Worst Of All, I Was Never A Hairy Person But I Started Getting Feet, And Stomach Hair! One Week I Gained 10Lbs, I Was Shocked, I Was Eating No More, 3 Months Laters I Gained Another 30 Lbs And So On! By 2010 I Was Over 180Lbs I Was So Scared, I Was Like If I'M Gaining Weight Like This Monthly, Imagine How I'D Look In A Few Years!
I Went To The Doctors And Had A Blood Test, He Said I Had An Underactive Thyroid, I Took Another One A Month Later, I Had High Testosterone Levels, And 2 Scans, I Finally Knew I Had Pcos.
So Thankfully I Caught My Pcos Quite Quickly Before I Got Any More Symptoms.
He Gave Me Metformin, 1000Mg A Day.I'Ve Been On It For 2 Weeks, My Face Is Clear!!! No Acne, I Feel Amazing, I'Ve Been Told I Look Like I'Ve Lost A Lot Of Weight, I Feel Like My Old Self! I Have Lost 8Lbs In 2 Weeks, And I'Ve Not Been Dieting Actually I'Ve Been Eating So Much Candy... Minus The Symptoms Of Dirreareah (Sp), Sweating, Dizziness... Before The Doctor Gave Me The Pills He Said I Would Have Drastic Rapid Weight Loss... Did Anyone Loose Weight On Them Also With Pcos?
I'M 18 Years Old, Female If That Matters!
Thanks So Much For Answers. Very Appreciated!
Sounds like my story. I am 5ft 4 and was 130. I went up to 180 and wasnt eating terribly, I was so confused till I got Diagnosed with PCOS.
It takes 1500mg-2000mg over a period of 3-6 months to start seeing improvements and to loose weight. Metformin helps with insulin resistance and weight loss BIG time. In about a year your symptoms should be under control. 30% ovulate with weight loss and Metformin alone. You should go on birthcontrol pills. This will lower your male hormones, give your ovaries a break and help make the unwanted hair go away. It is important you have a regular cycle too. Prevents cancer and also the BCP prevents more cysts on your ovaries. When you are ready for kids you will go off the birth control pill and try for them. 70% of PCOS women need clomid. Most ovulate the third cycle BUT have been on Met for about 6 months or more and their BMI is under 25%. Dont worry you can have kids with a Drs help. :-)
I also took a 1 credit weight training course at the college. It showed me how to excercise effectivly. All the stuff I learned was like recieving the holy grail for weight loss. LOL It also didnt cost much.
Heres the food to look for. Lean meats, veggies, fruit, wheat or whole grain bread and pasta products (you need carbs, whole grain is good carbs, they slowly release glucose), skim milk, low fat yogurt and for your sweet tooth, low surgar products, like jelly or surgar free wafers and dried fruit helps. Try also getting low fat not non fat products. (higher sodium in non fat products, ya need a little fat it helps fight cravings) You can get diet frozen meals that have no pasta in them for meals at work or on the go. The whole grain bread products will help fill you up too. Buy a multi vitamin, B complex, calcuim and fish oil. If pills make you sick, I take flintstones, fish gummys for brain health, and oscal for calcium. Folic acid , b complex and Metformin are the only pills I need to take. This will reduce cravings, and might as well, they are good for ya, couldnt hurt. :-)
Try to cut down on white. Like surgar, bleached flour, mayonaise, ranch dressing, cheese sauce white bread and pastas. Parsnips are high on the glysemic index. Also try to cook with olive oil and different blends of spices. I have a blend for each type of meat for example. You can also season with veggies too. I say this so you have variety. :-)
For breakfast I have wheat toast with low surgar jelly, a little bit of butter or a wheat begal with low fat cream cheese (warmed) and or a peice of fruit or yogurt. I make a lot of salads. I love advacados so I put them in my sandwiches and salads or a topping on meat and eggs. I also add tomatoes since I hate dry sandwiches. Dinner is lean seasoned meat cooked with an onion, little olive oil and water, with a veggie and whole grain. I try to make 50% of my portions veggies or fruits. The 50% dairy meat and grain.
The South beach diet and the Glysemic index diet is good for you. I mean that the types of foods in the diet are the ones you should aim for. Foods that dont release a bunch of glucose quickly. More like a slow release.
Do Supplements Mess With Birth Controls Power?
If I Want To Take Supplements For Weight Loss, Does It Affect Birth Control? Or Make It Less Effective? I Wana To Take A Muscle Building Supplement, Acai Berry, And Flax Seed Oil. Do Those Effect It At All?
The birth control pills contain a proven and tested compound monitored by the FDA. Dietary supplements for weight loss do not contain any proven or approved ingredient. They also do not need to be tested for side effects like approved drugs. Always look for clinical trial not clinical study.
The acai berry supplements are a waste of time since they are a simple antioxidant and most of the value is lost in processing.. You can get more benefit from a cup of small red beans daily plus the fiber. They aren't sexy because they aren't "exotic". You get the benefit from the flaxseed fiber and omegas, better than the oil.
Lose Weight With Garlic Pills?
Is It True That Garlic Pills Will Help Lose Weight.
I Have Been Going To A Woman's Gym For About 2 Years. Had A Baby In Dec. I Am About 5 Lbs From My Pre Pregancy Weight. But It Seems I Am Just Stuck At This Point. Any Ideas On How To Boost My Body To Lose That Extra Weight. I Heard Garlic Pills Work As Diet Pills. I'd Appreciate Your Input. Thanks
Three steps that have really helped me are dieting, exercising, and the correct weight loss supplement for losing weight. Focus on those three things and you will lose weight considerably. I exercise 30 mins a day along with taking Proactol, a natural weight loss supplement that I saved money on at theweightlossplace.com
Good luck and stay focused = )
Does Birth Control Make You Gain Weight?
If I Ever Happended To Stop Being On Birth Control Im Worried About Gaining Weight. Im Skinny, And I Dont Usually Gain Weight Lol, Knock On Wood, But I Was Just Wondering , I Heard It Makes Your Boobs Bigger, Which Is Okay With Me !Hahaa.
i asked my doctor this question, and he just laughed. he said when girls hear the words "weight gain" they reach for a piece of cake. if you go on the pill you most likely have entered into a new chapter of your life, and sometimes with that comes stress...so you eat for comfort. and that is what makes you gain the weight. i know on the package that the pill comes in it mentions 'weight gain' as a side effect...but remember most of the warnings are diclaimers to protect the manufacturer's butt. my doctor said that it's all about your attitude when you start on the pill - if you think it will make you gain weight it probably will (because you are more likely to get 'down' about it and eat more and you won't stay as active)...if you start taking the pill thinking that nothing is going to change...your eating patterns stay the same and you remain active - you should just maintain your weight.
Ok, Ritalin And Energy Drinks........If You Take Ritalin And Energy Drinks What Can Happen, Side Efects......?
What Can Happen If You Are On Medication Of Ritalin And You Drink Energy Drinks A Lot.............Is It Bad For You............Pleas Only Answer If You Have A True Answer..........Thanks
Too much energy would be one major thing. Ritalin is a form of Speed, so adding caffeine and sugar to that would probably make most people jittery and make it difficult if not impossible to stay still. Not to mention the fact that Drugs.com says they shouldn't be taken together in the PDR (see below).
As far as taking energy drinks while on other prescriptions, I would ask your pharmacist or doctor to see if it would be safe to take them together. Some prescriptions would be fine with it, some could be dangerous with it. Drugs.com even lists the following.
"When you are taking caffeine, it is especially important that your health care professional know if you are taking any of the following:
* Amantadine (e.g., Symmetrel) or
* Amphetamines (e.g., Desoxyn, Dexedrine) or
* Appetite suppressants (diet pills) or
* Bupropion (e.g., Wellbutrin) or
* Chlophedianol (e.g., Ulone) or
* Cocaine or
* Fluoxetine (e.g., Prozac) or
* Medicine for asthma or other breathing problems or
* Medicine for colds, sinus problems, hay fever or other allergies (including nose drops or sprays) or
* Methylphenidate (e.g., Ritalin) or
* Nabilone (e.g., Cesamet) or
* Other medicines or beverages containing caffeine or
* Paroxetine (e.g., Paxil) or
* Pemoline (e.g., Cylert) or
* Sertraline (e.g., Zoloft)—Using these medicines with caffeine may increase the CNS-stimulant effects, such as nervousness, irritability, or trouble in sleeping, or possibly cause convulsions (seizures) or changes in the rhythm of your heart
* Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors (furazolidone [e.g., Furoxone], isocarboxazid [e.g., Marplan], phenelzine [e.g., Nardil], procarbazine [e.g., Matulane], selegiline [e.g., Eldepryl], tranylcypromine [e.g., Parnate])—Taking large amounts of caffeine while you are taking or within 2 weeks of taking MAO inhibitors may cause extremely high blood pressure or dangerous changes in the rhythm of your heart; taking small amounts of caffeine may cause mild high blood pressure and fast heartbeat"
Does The Weight Loss Supplement Relacore Affect Birth Control Pills?
I Am Taking Bc And Was Just Wondering Because I Really Don'T Want It To Affect It. Any Help Will Be Appriciated!!
Since Relacore is magnolia bark, probably not, but you can call and ask your pharmacist to be certain.
Pcos, Metformin, And Weight Loss?
I Was Recently Diagnosed With Pcos, And Started Taking Metformin Today. I'M 5'4&Quot; And Weigh 145Lbs, Which Is Considered Average, But I Think I Would Be Healthier And Happier If I Could Get Down To 130Ish. Anyway, I Wondered What Anyone Else'S Experience Has Been With Metformin - Did It Help You Lose Weight? I'M Not Insulin Resistant (I'M Also A Type I Diabetic), So I Didn'T Know If That Would Play A Part In The Weight Loss Or Not. My Ob/Gyn Said The Metformin Would Definitely Help Me Lose Weight, But My Endocrinologist Said It Probably Wouldn'T. Thoughts? Experiences?
I have PCOS and have been on Met twice. The first time I dropped weight like crazy, but no so much on the second try. It has some nasty side effects at times. I would be sure to take the pills literally in the middle of a meal to soften the blow. It can be hard on your tummy. I used to think the only reason I was losing weight was because I was constantly running to the bathroom.
Also, you could look into supplementing cinnamon. I am not a doctor or anything, but there are studies I have read that show cinnamon helps with blood sugar (and weight).
If you were just diagnosed with PCOS be sure to do your research on it and maybe join a forum like Soulcysters (they are amazing). My PCOS went untreated for years. I wish I had known more how to treat it and I could have saved myself a lot of heart ache. Good luck!
PS - you will not be any happier at your goal weight. enjoy your awesomeness now.
