I know I'm a guy, but wow.. What are the fat burners? Like clueoetnrbl? I'm not a doctor however I've taken my fair share of pills including this one. I'm really jus surprised he would put u on phen and two fat burners. Even one extra fat burner is strange. Look at it like this. He's giving you pills to lose weight to improve your health. If your way overweight then your body will already be under stress jus from that. Adding phen could raise someone's blood pressure even higher in someone extremely obese, but when the fat starts coming off then their health will improve. Call it a necessary evil like an x-ray(bad radiation, but could save your life). If you add 2 more fat burners to that, then wow. Your body could be under extreme duress. If your jus a little overweight then again.. Wow.. I think the phen would be plenty. Somebody thin and in shape with no other health risks would probably feel a little crappy with all that. Fat burners and phen both do one common thing to your body. They dehydrate the heck out of you. Phen makes u eat a ton less. Now u have less nutrients and vitamins. Throw your period in there and you probably are lacking some vitamins like maybe iron. Common side effects for phen include headache, insomnia at first, elevated heart rate, chest tightness/pain(most likely not your heart like some people trip about. Pills like these can make your body tense up, and your jaws clench). Fat burners can have similar side effects. Again, I'm not a doctor. I have personal experience with these pills. I obviously also don't have periods. You should always listen to your doc, but remember that they are human too, and most have them have never taken the pill they are prescribing. A lot of them will say that ultram is non-addictive, and feel more comfortable throwing vicodin to everyone like confetti while claiming marijuana is more harmful. You kno your body better than anybody else. If for some reason you can't get a hold of your doc or can't get in then I would drop the two fat burners till uncan get in. Your not gonna withdrawal or have a bad reaction to dropping the fat burners. You always hear people say to never stop taking your medication and for the most part that's 100% right, but if your body is falling apart and you are stacking a bunch of weight loss pills then I would say here's your exception to that rule. Remember this is what I would do. I'm not telling you to do this. Good luck
