Mental health issues

I need help to know if my Severe Depression, Anxiety, & Stress of which I've had and which has only worsen over the last 5+ years. Please get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you,
AskDocWeb: The effects of long-term use of Tenuate have not and probably will not be studied because it is approved only for short-term use. That is generally a few weeks. Even with short-term use both anxiety and depression are listed as possible side effects of Tenuate. The prescribing information for this drug clearly states that it should not be stopped suddenly after long-term use, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Have you considered changing doctors or asking a Lawyer about this?
Hi, I am using varfarine and my doctor give me Tenuate for losing weight. Do you think is not interaction using both medicine?
AskDocWeb: Varfarine does not appear in our database of drugs made in the U.S. A.. It appears to be a coagulant medication used to treat hypocoagulation, which means that the blood doesn't clot properly to stop bleeding. You would need to check with a source in your country to find out about any possible drug interactions.

How long does it take?
I've been on tenuate retard for about 3 month now. I'm planning to get pregnant. How long this drug stays in your system once you stop taking it. Thanks.
AskDocWeb: The half-life of Tenuate is estimated to be between 4 to 6 hours so it may take up to 30 hours to completely clear your system.
