I take phentermine 37.5 once a day. Is it safe to use phentermine with HCG drops, or with Lipozene?

The most concentrated forms of HCG must be prescribed by a doctor. Anything that you can buy online or over the counter will contain very little of the hormone. Phentermine also must be prescribed by a physician. Therefore, your question is best answered by your physician who can prescribe these drugs and knows your health condition, other drugs you are taking, and if there are any contraindications between the phentermine and HCG or the other drugs you may be taking. Drug to drug interactions are responsible for many serious side effects, and even death, in patients every year. This is not an area where you want to experiment. Please discuss this with your physician. Thank you and good luck to you! MBL
