How long do phentermine side effects last

Common Questions and Answers about How long do phentermine side effects last


Avatar n tn strange thoughts, intestinal trouble, numbness in the face, mood swings. How long do these side effects last? I'm not feeling as though I normally should, and I'm trying to find the cause...normally, I'm very healthy & happy.
Avatar n tn I haven’t had any side effects since my second day. I’m not sure how much weight I have lost since I do not own a scale. I spoke to someone a couple days ago and she told me she lost 40 lbs. in one month, but she was 350 lbs. when she started taking it. Thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn My dr. put me on Phentermine last Thursday, and i have already lost 5.5 lbs!! Before i tried everything to lose the weight, and nothing even budged it. With a new diet, and no more pop, along with ALOT of water, i think i'm off to a pretty good start!!
Avatar n tn Would a doctor say such? What are some of the long-term effects that could come from long term usage? Over the last 4-5 years(used ephedrine for over a year, previously), I've had some serious side-effects, totally life altering side-effects.
Avatar n tn What are the possible side effects of HCG?
Avatar n tn Maybe shes taking something else with the injections to cause these side effects, as far as I know b12 alone shouldn't have any side effects. PS You can't even "overdoes" on B12, your system just gets rid of the excess b12 vitamin when you urinate... but you never know, people react differently to these things. Do you think she looks unhealthy because she's getting too skinny? Maybe shes not eating right and thats causing her to look unhealthy?
Avatar n tn When i was taking the HCG injection. I had side effects on it mood swing really bad. I also had bad break out on face,neck,back, and I wasn't losing that much weight as I hoped for. So just on saturday I went to another Dr. to see if they have something that will work better, faster,less side effects. So now I'am getting B-12 shots once a week along with Phentermine, Serotrim,Kromplex, Tee Leaf, Lasix. I have 60 LB"S to loss.
Avatar n tn I became pregnant with my fifth child while taking injections and took about 3 days worth before I realized I was late for my period. I was nervous about side effects and how they would effect my baby based on the warning of birth defects, but my now 6 month old is perfect with no signs of any birth defects. Don't freak out if you got pregnant while taking injections but definetly stop taking them if you think you may be. You do not want to risk your babies health just to lose weight.
Avatar n tn I have stopped cold turkey and have not taken a pill since last Monday. How long do you have to go thru the cotton filter feeling in your head and the "do not want to do anything" feeling?
Avatar f tn They do not produce the same negative side effects any longer but they also do not do much to curb my appetite, they just help me from falling to sleep while driving to visit my kids every weekend and help me work at night without falling asleep in my chair.
Avatar n tn ill never understand takeing DRUG that trys to tell your brain your not long you think you can do that...
Avatar f tn How long can someone taking that many phentermine pills continue taking that many before their heart goes out? I'm aware that depends on the person and other factors, but I'm wondering a ball park estimate. What about with the marijuana and alcohol figured in? Has anyone ever seen someone take this many for long? I ask because I do want to help. I've had the "You're going to die" talks with him. He cries and it gets to him but obviously not enough.
Avatar n tn I would like others that are doing it to post any known side effects. I also heard alot of people saying that It has nothing to do with the injections. its the diet pill coupled with a very low call diet and excerciseing every day for 2 hours. either way I will continue because I have never felt better. ohh and it has also slowed down my PCOS as well as made my Cycle regular.
Avatar n tn I asked if I might return the pills to the clinic and be sent more pills just to see if the problem is with those particular pills. So what do you think? I have taken phentermine before and lost 6 lbs the 1st week and my appetite was really suppressed! (which was a great feeling!) Thanks for your input. I am baffled! I thought I might 1/2 the pill and take 1/2 at 9:00 a.m. and 1/2 at around 1:00. Thanks for responding!
579324 tn?1276057874 how long have you been taking methimazole? what is your dosage and how often do you take it? how long have you had the hyperactive thyroid? DO NOT worry about gaining a few pounds, everyone is different, every case is different. the importance of lowering the hyperactivity of your thyroid is more important right now. my hyper is in remission, gone tho i still have an elevated percentage of graves antibody in my system. the methimazole worked for my hyperactive thyroid, completely.
Avatar n tn Side effects include diarrhea, dry mouth, constipation, an unpleasant taste, hives, impotence, palpitations, high blood pressure, and fast heart rates. Central nervous system side effects include overstimulation, insomnia, restlessness, tremor, and dizziness.
Avatar n tn I use the treadmill and do sit ups. How long do you suggest I exercise my arms to loose a few inches or can I?
Avatar n tn I am fine on that dose, have much fewer side effects than I did on 150mg and am happy to continue long term. Everyone is different but I definitely found the gradual reduction approach MUCH better than just stopping all at once. Hope that helps.
Avatar n tn It took about 2 months being off of it before I could feel the effects of it again. How long can you safely take phentermine 37.5? I lost 26 pounds, most of which were during the first two months, but I'd like to lose another 15.
Avatar n tn I really feel like the Phentermine has been the biggest help for me. I have had little to no side effects. I took it many years ago when the whole Phen-Phen thing was big and was successful. It has really made be recognize how much I ate before and gets rid of my cravings. I think you will have success without Phentermine, but you would have more benefit if you used it. Think about it. Maybe take it for a week or so. The affects are immediate. Whatever you decide..stick with it.
Avatar f tn Which is the real thing? Probably none of them. See the thread "How do I order phentermine online..." on this site. Don't get ripped off.
Avatar n tn Do you have to get phentermine from a dr? and get b12 shots? how often do you do both? is this a good way to lose weight?
Avatar n tn Well if you really want your metabolism to be faster those AMP/B12 shots will do the trick. "PLEASE remember it is not just B12!". And as for the supressants they do work and you do not realize how much food we really do eat. We are suppose to eat portions equal to the palm of our hands. "Unless of course WE,you,us have HUGE GORILLA HANDS! hahaha! But seriously take the whole program. The doctor's information is on my first comment under my name.
Avatar f tn any drug at any time has a potential to have side effects and I knew going into the treatment what side effects may happen. I thought I was safe because the dr did EKG's, said they were fine and signed off on them even though they showed problems on them (they're in my profile under pictures).
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have only had 1 shot so far not much difference,I thought the b12 was for energy,if no better by monday I should call doc,just to stay on the safe side,better safe than sorry,do not give up,remember how bad you want it.I will keep posting,my 1st weigh in is Tuesday....
