Phentermine is increasing my heart rate too much to use it

Customer Question

Phentermine is increasing my heart rate too much to use it as a weight loss drug. Today I have an appointment with my doctor and I know she told me to research qsemia, belviq and contrave. Seems like qsemia seems like phentermine and belviq seems to have a lot of side effects
Contrave on the contrary has Wellbutrin and naltrexone and I think might help with my food cravings/ addiction to food/ thoughts about food
What is your opinion about these ones and which one do you recommend?

Most of the pills that you mentioned has serious side effects , and I will not recomend any of them for you .

Rather I will recommend you to use FDA approved Tab Orlistat 120 mg three times a day .

This is proven drug to reduce weight with minimum side effects .

Please get it .

Good luck .

Contrave is Wellbutrin though that a lot of people are on no?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 month ago.

Yes , this is used but as its major use is Anti depressant , so it ha its own side effects .

Minimum side effect pill is Orlistat .

but I need a hunger suppressant. I don't think oralistat does that
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 month ago.

Ok , if you need hunger suppressant than among all of the pills , safe one pill is Wellbutrin , as it speeds metabolism and suppress hunger , with rapid loss of weight .

This is good one among all that you mentioned .

Well contrave is Wellbutrin right?
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 1 month ago.

Wellbutrin contains Buproprion .

Contrave is a combination of two older drugs, bupropion and naltrexone. Bupropion, which has been sold under the brand names Zyban and Wellbutrin, has been usedto help people quit smoking and to treat depression. Naltrexone is used to curb cravings to addictive drugs like alcohol and narcotics .So contave not simply contains Wellbutrin.

Regards .
