Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.

Do you take any other prescription medications?

I take Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl tablets
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

Because those hormones inhibit your liver enzyme pathways then it's incredibly likely that the phentermine will have you test positive for amphetamines in the urine.

would sudafed and nyquil pose a problem ?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

Sudafed and nyquil both will also increase the chance of you testing positive.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
