Lipo B injection and Phentermine combined with 5htp

I am trying to find information on the medications given to me at a local weight loss clinic I went to last Friday, They did lab work and my prescriptions were Phentermine 30mg combined in the same capsule with 5 HTP and also Lipo B injections that are being mailed to my home.  Is this safe?  I paid quite a bit to feel so afraid of the whole thing.  I'm just very desperate to lose weight.  I did take the appetite suppressant today and it obviously has worked since I haven't eaten even close to half of what I normally would.  Please let me know if this is something new or if it's been around for a while or what?

Thank you! I didn't start gaining till my son turned two...don't know why, but may have something to do with what I feed him and eating his leftover's. He's three now.  I started the phentermine Monday, just got the lipo B in the mail yesterday.  Kind of unsure how to inject myself...

Hi, I am also on Phentermine 30 (from UK), which is working very well. But I don't like the sound of those injections! Why are these necessary? of course in the UK appetite suppressants etc are frowned upon, and you can only obtain them from private clinics, but as for injections, no I would never do this.

So far I have lost 26 lbs since start of May, I am also a single parent and put on so much weight over the last few years, so this has helped me so much - whatever the critics say. I am monitored for blood pressure which is fine every time.

Good luck in your weight loss challenge!

Thank you for your input on the injections...I'm seriously a chicken when it comes stuff like that, but the weight loss clinic was raving about them and I thought what the he**....So here I sit $200 later with a full bottle of the lipo b stuff...At least the phentermine works well:D

Here is what I have found on the LIPO B injections.  I have a friend who is taking them and she LOVES them.  Said that they are wonderful!!!!




Lipotropics are weight loss combinations that must be administered by a licensed and registered MD, physician, or weight loss clinic professional. The Lipo B12 injections or Lipotropic injections cannot be purchased over the Internet for self injections and weight loss treatment.

The Lipo-B vitamin cocktail included in the Lipotropic and B12 shots (Lipo-B) are compounds that enhance liver function and increase the flow of fats and bile from the liver and gallbladder. Lipo-B decreases fat deposits and speeds up the metabolism and the natural removal of fat from the human body. By definition, a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver (lipo = fat, tropic = stimulate). There are three key amino acids used to make these lipotropic shots are Vitamin B12, Choline, Methione, and Inositol. Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.

Choline supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical wast products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.

Methione is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release.

Inositol, a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

The different ingredients of the Lipotropic B12 mixtures are known to provide the following attributes:
Co-enzymes that are required for proper metabolism of fats, and have the ability to remove fat from the liver
energy boost
speed up thought process and improve mood
building blocks for cell walls
essential components for normal cell and brain function
help control cholesterol levels and gallstones
helps emulsify cholesterol and detoxify amines
helps keep healthy skin tone and strong nails
promote healthy hair growth, and controlling estrogen levels
help with transforming carbohydrates into energy

hellooo!!

the information is perfect!! thanks a lot!!

Because I am living in Europe, and we do not have "shots" like that, I found the pills with methione, inositol and choline combined with vitamin B. And I guess it helps!! I am now taking them for a week, but I certainly feel better now..

Can you also please tell me, how much of each (vit B, and MIC) inside these shots are, and how long should a person taking it, and short to say: the dossage of it..

in addition to that pills, I am also taking milk thistle; that is also very helpful for the liver..

thanks a lot!!!!!!!
