phentermine

I am taking citalopram, wellbutrin and phentermine My weight is going up and I am sweating all the time. is it because of this combo of meds? What can I take for weight loss?.
I want to get off the wellbutrin sr.I have been on it since 2010..and i dont think i need it anymore.Next month i see my female dr and will ask her how i can get off the wellbutrin..she perscribes all my meds,except the vicodin,heart dr gave me that for severe low back pain..and i have been on it in the past for after tooth work.and now he gave me the phentermine..can anyone give me any insight...I was on it before but was not on all the other meds.
When I was on phentermine and b12 shots, I lost about 13 lbs in 2 weeks, then basically stopped losing altogether. In my opinion it was a lot of water weight : [ Eventually, I couldn't sleep and got very bi*chy, so I chose to stop taking it. After I stopped, my appetite came back in full force and I put it all right back on. Now I'm on Tenuate and like it alot better. It curbs my appetite (though not so drastically) but doesn't geek me out, so I can still sleep and function normally.
Even if you had to get a capsule size similar to what you have been taking (or had been taking) you can open the capsules and pour out half of the contents....and take that and then take the remainding amount the next day and carry on like that for maybe a week and then go lower still for another week, perhaps taking 1/4 of the capsule. I am not a doctor, but this makes sense to me.
site all you have to do is type in the word phentermine and it will show a pictures and descriptions of what phentermine should look like. Hope this was helpful to you guys. Take care and good luck in your weight loss journey!!!
Hi people, i'm new but it's nice to be here! I was prescribed Wellbutrin today and wanted to know if anyone has had any significant side-effects related to weight. I have heard it can help you lose weight but I was wondering if anyone thinks that even people who are underweight can see these effects. My BMI is about 18 and I hope to lose another 5lbs. I know it isnt exactly healthy to want to lose weight but, other than the weight, I am in perfect health.
I had a gastric bypass in 2001 and lost 250 pounds, then my husband and I started fertility treatments and it made me gain 85 pounds back that I could not get rid of even only eating 4 oz of food at a time. On Valentine's day I started the Phentermine and B12 shots and after 1 week I had lost 9 pounds and my energy was outrageous.
The 2nd time I was home and after hospitalization and exhaustive tests there was no doubt it was the Wellbutrin. In their TV ads for Wellbutrin the manufacture now mentions seisures as one of the main side effects. I did lose some weight and at 55 my libido went through the roof. Thoses side effects were great :-) But the seisures caused me untold grief with the Motor Vehicle Department.
I am currently on topomax to prevent migraines, was on it in the past, but my Doctor also prescribed to help shed the baby weight I have gained, I was seeing a diet Doctor, receiving phentermine, b-12,b-6 and lipo injections, ( I stopped because the $105.00 a week, was killi g my budget) I have b-12 injections at home, what I was wondering is it safe to take both Topomax and phentermine as a super combo or do the react differently and dangerously combined in the brain?
I prescribed60 mg of adderall but one week I had to take left over phentermine and 10mg adderall and my focusing was great and energy and I still do take 1/3 of phentermine a day.
...and I was utterly miserable. I had been on Wellbutrin back in 2005 for about 3 years. Then the anxiety started to get to me. But I have gained weight due to spending a whole two years on Lexapro...2007-2009. I am miserable when overweight. So, I remembered that during my time with Effexor XR, I did not gain. However, I still have the appetite of a horse on it, I am menopausal, and it is harder, even with calorie counting and exercise to take off the last 15 lbs.
I am on wellbutrin and lexapro. Recently I went to a weight loss clinic where they gave me phentermine, hydrochlorthiazide, and a fiber plus calcium tablet. I was wondering how dangerous this is and if I should/could ween myself or abruptly stop my antidepressant and anxiety meds?
Caution is advised combining Wellbutrin and Phentermine as this combo may increase your risk of seizures. If weight gain is a side effect of your psych meds, talk to your prescribing doctor about your concerns.
Do you know of a good doctor that I could go to that would prescribe good medication to help me loose weight. I have tried everything and failed. I am on Wellbutrin and Effexor for depression. Please help. I am extremely overweight.

Lost over 80 lbs on combination of Adderall and Wellbutrin, with the help of running and eating half portions, and kept off for 2 years until this past year.....have gained 20-30 back, don't have as much energy and control of my OCD as before. I am now on Topamax for my severe migraines....while still taking Adderall and Wellbutrin, hoping to cease taking those soon. Also hoping will help my compulsive binge eating and make me feel normal again! Just on the 3rd day of Topamax.
Namaste, Phentermine and Wellbutrin XL can cause a serious interaction problem, although I find no exidence of Xanax causing a problem. Before changing or stopping any medication, you should first consult with your healthcare providerm so that he/she know exactly what medications, to include supplements, you are taking, and for what reason(s). Only then, will they be able to prescribe proper medication to control your symptoms without any concerns over drug interactions.
I was already on Wellbutrin 150 mg twice a day and a diet, by the way,and struggling with depression over my weight. Two years later, I am at 200 mg per day of Topomax, headache free with no change in the flavor that I can apprciate. I am also wearing a size 6 working to a size 4. One caution. If you have anorexic tendencies, as I do, be very careful. I forget to eat, don't want to eat, strive for that smaller size, although everyone tells me that that is enough weight loss.
I have not approached my current psychiatrist about the combination of the prozac and phentermine, but I have an appointment tomorrow and will ask his opinion. I realize that I can always find another weight loss program that will prescribe the phentermine, but I wondered what my alternatives would be and if the current medical research does indeed support this combination of drugs.
he is truly an inspiration to us all...hang in there and Thomas and Wizard can give you their testomonials and help you out with their suggestions......
I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Hi, I have been on Effexor XR for 3 years and I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exercise. I have always been underweight and I could eat whatever I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.
I forgot to get a copy of my results from my last couple of visits and will try to do that tomorrow and post the results. As for weight loss, I'm on Phentermine 37.5MG. Not sure it really has helped.....weight loss is extremely difficult for me, regardless of what I do. Since starting Phentermine in Feb 2010 I have lost 20 lbs, which I am glad about, but it's been almost a year and a ton of work!
I HAVE BEEN ON ZOLOFT FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS NOW AND I WENT TO SEE A PSYCHITRIST THE OTHER DAY A TOLD HIM MY PROBLEMS AND THAT ZOLOFT WASN'T HELPING ME AND HE SAID STOP TAKING THE ZOLOFT AND START TAKING WELLBUTRIN SR, SO THAT DAY I STOPPED THE ZOLOFT AND STARTED THE WELLBUTRIN. I CAN'[T EXPLAIN TO YOU HOW I FEEL, I HAVE ZAPPING ELECTRIC SHOCK FEELINGS THROUGHOUT MY WHOLE BODY, I AM VERY DEPRESSED AND START CRYING A THE DROP OF A HAT, I FEEL HORRIBLE. HOW CAN I FEEL BETTER? WHAT SHOULD I DO?
I just started the B12 w/ Adenosine and phentermine to curb my appatite. and a 975 calorie diet. I think this might help you not only with weight loss but b12 and b6 is a natural stress reducer. I feel great on this. I cut out all caffine and alcohol and i don't smoke. I get up in the morning and by the time i get out of the shower i have a ton of energy. i feel like i have had my morning coffee but i haven't had any caffine. Not sure where you live but you can always ask your DR.
I was taking wellbutrin for a month and I had missed my period... or so i thought. I got it almost a week late. During this time I switched from wellbutrin to phentermine. I have now had my period for over 3 weeks. It has been very light, and occasionally its seems more just like spotting. I seem to not have it for a few hours then its back. I don't know if it has anything to do with my medications and I don't know if I should be worried or see a doctor.
I am taking phentermine and will get a b-12 shot here soon. I take half a pill in the morning and the second half in the afternoon. I have high blood pressure that is controlled and my doctor said that this is the best way for me to take the phen so that my blood pressure would not go up and so far it is working out great. With the phen I am not hungry but I force myself to eat, high protein meals. You may want to look into taking phentermine.
About this same time I had decided to start weaning myself off of Effexor for several different reasons. I was taking both Wellbutrin XL and Effexor XR and was just tired of taking so many medications ( I am also on hormone replacement therapy). The side effects I had from Effexor were not that totally bad; sweating and being hot when nobody else was, decreased sexual feelings, not as intense orgasms. I had quit about a year ago but don't remember feeling like this at all.
Phentermine will not help you lose weight, the old Phentermine did but is was a very nasty and dangerous drug. The FDA withdrew Phentermine and removed the dangerous ingredient which is what made you lose weight...and the new Phentermine does nothing. There are doctors who prescribe it but they also insist that you be on a low carbohydrate diet with it. So you will lose weight but not because of the Phentermine but because of the low carb diet! The Phentermine is a big waste of your money.
