Customer Question

Hello. I was given a prescription for Phentermine 30 mg/capsule. I take one in the morning around 7:30 am. This afternoon I purchased SlimQuick Pure (I just had a baby two months ago and have a wedding in 4 months so am trying to get back in shape!). I took 3 capsules around 2 pm this afternoon (as per the bottles instructions) and hadn't considered any drug interactions at the time. Now I am concerned that I have taken both in one day. Should I be worried?
JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Doctor will figure it out.
Customer: Okay. How do I go about getting the answer to my question?
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I take sertraline, 2 - 100 mg pills once a day, a daily vitamin, buproprion hcl 150 mg, and phentermine 30 mg. I am allergic to erythromycin.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have had several episodes of high blood pressure in the past and experienced pre eclampsia during my 1st pregnancy in 2014, but all blood pressures during my most recent pregnancy and since I delivered have been normal.

no, you shouldn't be worried.

but you should be on either the phentermine or use the slim quick, not both.

you need to cut your carbohydrates in your diet and exercise to help you loose weight.

Okay, that is a relief, thank you very much!
