Sorry didnt mention the medicine's i was taking... It is metformin hydrochloride, i also am taking phentormine, furosomide, potassium and a fat burner.
You didn't mention what pills, however, 6-days? Good sign? What qualifications did the person who told you that without also mentioning the potential for dehydration or that Dr should be made aware?
Also know pills alone will do little for weight loss, you may already know, it's a total lifestyle change, I won't go into details on that, but the body can be made to burn fat (not just calories) with its own metabolism, a lot of great info on this.
I do not like to ever advise stopping or starting medications and again I do not know which one you're taking, but there is noting "good" or normal about diarrhea for 6+ days. Demand (nicely) to speak to the Dr., and if you cannot, and you are 100% certain it's the pills and nothing else, you'll have to stop for now. Hydrate and get well, there are other, healthier options for weigh loss.
