Pregnancy is the most beautiful and essential time of a woman’s life. When carrying a new life inside, you must be very attentive to what you eat, drink, and especially what medicine you take.

During your pregnancy or breastfeeding, you will undoubtedly face the problem that many pills are contradicted. So, is it safe to take Duromine in these circumstances?

Can you take Duromine while pregnant?

During your pregnancy, you should take care of your health and, especially, your weight. Obese weight can lead to many health problems not only for a woman but also for a fetus.
But according to the information leaflet you receive with Duromine, Duromine should not be used in pregnant women. Studies in animals have shown evidence of an increased occurrence of fetal damage.

Thus taking Duromine while you are pregnant is not recommended

At the same time, you should be very careful about your pregnancy weight gain. Eat only healthy food which includes all the nutrients for your baby.

Can you take Duromine while trying to get pregnant?

If you plan to get pregnant, it would be better to go off Duromine. During your pregnancy, you will experience many different changes in your body. That’s why it should be healthy and ready for it.

Judging by different stories, women fell pregnant while on Duromine. So if it happens to you, don’t panic. There is no 100% guarantee that something happens to your baby inside. However, you should stop taking Duromine as well as other medication and contact your doctor.

Can you take Duromine while breastfeeding?

All young mothers want to gain their former toned body. But there is no data available on the safety of Duromine during breastfeeding, and as such, it is better to avoid taking Duromine while breastfeeding.

All you eat and drink appears in your breastmilk. You need to eat well during the lactation period and forget about a strict or specific diet to feed your baby healthily. It would be best if you also asked your doctor before taking any medication.

At the same time, you should also take care of your nervous system. As you know, Duromine is a stimulant, and it works on the central nervous system to suppress your appetite. Thus Duromine and breastfeeding are incompatible.

Does Duromine affect the contraceptive pill?

According to studies, Duromine doesn’t affect birth control pills. However, some women experience changes in their bodies and claim that Duromine affects their period. Some women even fell pregnant. But we should warn you that it may happen even if you are not taking Duromine. Pharmaceutical manufacturers don’t give a 100% guarantee of contraceptives effectiveness.

Concluding the above, first and foremost, you should think about your future baby’s health. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, go off Duromine, and ask your doctor before taking any medication.
