NURISTERATE

Hi doc, I have been trying to lose weight, been on duromine but lost nothing. I would like to know if using nuristerate as a contraceptive can have an effect on your attempts to lose weight?

Dear Nthabi
The use of any female hormones for contraception or replacement therapy has the potential to either cause weight gain or weightloss depending on the individual reaction of the patient. Discuss this with the dr who is prescribing your contraceptive. Have you been using a low-fat, energy-reduced diet together with the Duromine? if not, (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for at least 30 min a day.
Best regards
