READ ME PLEASE!!!!!!!
Hallo doc. Just a quick question which I hope you can help me with. I took clomid for 4 months... am supposed to do a 6 month course, but was gaining weight. I then Immediately started on reductil 15 and citrilean fat burners. I get headaches often so I use myprodol tabs, or stilpayne or panados... whatever I can get my hands on. Is this mixture of so many different chemicals bad for me? I mean, I think its bad, but what is the worst case scenario? Also, will all these chemicals decrease my chances of ever getting pregnant?...

Continiuosly taking too many tablets together is never good for your body - Best would be to find out what the cause of your headaches is, and start treatment from there. Note that REDUCTIL may be harmful to an unborn baby. You should use a reliable contraceptive method to prevent pregnancy while using this. Before trying to get pregnant you'll have to discontinue the reductil. Reductil may also cause headaches. Speak to the headache expert regarding your headaches and ask Gyneadoc's advice on getting pregnant.
