Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight fast phentermine


Avatar n tn s, it gained approval from the FDA in 1959 as a short term slimming aid, and has been used by thousands of dieters in the last 45 years. Useful especially for people who have difficulty in losing weight because of a sluggish metabolism, it has revolutionised the experience of dieting, turning a long and often frustrating battle into a fast and reasonably pleasant process.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced weight gain in the second week of phentermine and stopped losing after that? I started taking the phen pill 37.5mg and a B12shot two weeks ago, my doctor only gave me a 30day supply since he said its more for obese people than overweight people. Im 28yrs old, 5'3" and started the pill at 150lbs, the first week I went down to 145.1 by the second week I went back up to 146.3 does anyone know why im gaining?
9845182 tn?1412030383 I think the phentermine is what caused it, actually you not taking anymore. I'm not saying you were starving yourself or anything but phentermine wasn't making you hungry so understandably you didn't eat, so it's like someone who purposely starves and then starts eating normally and gain it all back then some...I'm nearing my 5th month and haven't gained any, I've lost 13lbs, I started working my second month and eat more on schedule.
Avatar m tn Since being diagnosed I have started taking a half tablet of phentermine to control my appetite in an effort to lose weight. I also started taking birth control again. My doctor also prescribed taking metformin(glucophage) in addition to the phentermine and birth control. I have lost about 8 pounds in the last month since taking the phentermine but i dont feel like I am losing enough weight for how little i have been eating.
1460292 tn?1285764089 Hye! Wow, losing 40lbs is a grreat job! Phentermine is something you should not get hooked-to! In these phases of weight loss did you ever get your body composition tests done? You might be losing valuable muscle along with fats from your body. In turn, losing muscle decreases your resting metabolic rate making you gain more weight back again later... This could be dangerous. Please get your body fat % measured and also take into account your skeletal muscle part.
Avatar f tn i had a VERY stressful/anxiety period over the past 5 days which caused me to be an emotional wreck, not sleeping well, heart beating fast at times. i cut my phentermine dose in half and totally went off my diet. i was also taking bactrim DS (antibiotic for possible UTI) which had a negative culture (but my urine showed trace blood and leukocytes) and no burning while urinating. just frequent urination which seems better now. DR is not concerned.
995335 tn?1251479506 I have been reading all these post about losing tons of weight with phentermine and B12 shots but I am wondering are there any negative side effects to phentermine & B12 shots? I have really been thinking about doing this for the last few months but I have been hesitant because I am unsure of the problems it could create/cause. Any of you out there have any personal experiences to tell?
Avatar f tn Once your thyroid hormones are raised, you should have an easier time losing weight and might very possibly not even need the phentermine.
877371 tn?1240237527 Personally, I would be concerned with phentermine alone, let alone in combination with the other medications. Studies show that successful weight loss usually involves a lifestyle change that involves better and more nutritional food choices. Any weight that may be lost while taking phentermine or other "diet pills" has not been approved as a safe way to lose weight and research shows that weight is normally regained and usually in excess from where a person began.
Avatar f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that phentermine should not affect your depo shot. Depo is notoriously bad for causing weight gain. Just something to consider. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I have been taking Phentermine for about 3 weeks. I have been going to the gym daily 30-40. I watch what I eat. I mean I don't eat much and I still can't seem to lose weight. I am not hungry so I don't eat much What do o do to start losing weight. What am o doing wrong.
Avatar f tn In January of 2015 I started taking Phentermine in just 3 months I lost a total of 50 lbs it was amazing than I became pregnant and had my baby in December of 2015 I breast fed her for 2 months than I decided to start back with phentermine to my surprise Phentermine was no longer helping me I was doing exactly what I did in the beginning 1200 calories a day 30 min work out 3 times a week but I would get crazy hungry at night I felt light headed and even though I worked out I still felt so lazy
Avatar n tn But I only intend to be on it for one more month, as the doctor said it is used for three months only, as the body gets used to it and you may stop losing weight. I feel I have kickstarted the weight loss but I do understand that this is a drastic way of losing weight, however I think the dangers of being obese somewhat outway the dangers of taking amphetamines short term to lose weight (as long as you have no other pre-existing conditions).
481269 tn?1208280771 It worked great for me loosing weight. But, I do have 2 friends that mixed alcohol and phentermine and it was NOT a pretty site. It can increase some of the side effects of phentermine. It makes you have the ability to drink a lot more than you are used to, and it actually made both of my friends crazy in behavior.
Avatar n tn my doc. gave me phentermine 37.5 should i take it if i already have heart polputations?
Business woman2 Losing weight that quickly is not safe and phentermine is not a long term solution. Both my daughter and her husband were on the phentermine for a while; they both lost fabulously, but within a month of going off it, they both gained back everything they'd lost, plus some. Both are now obese, where they weren't before; just overweight.
729886 tn?1232662881 You will not be taking diet pills every single day for the rest of your life, so if you become relient on losing weight with the aide of a pill, once you get off it it will making maintaining your new weight very difficult and chances are you'll end up putting the weight back on, possibly more.
Avatar f tn Finally, a few months ago I found this forum and I heard about a prescription weight loss pill, phentermine 37.5 mg. I read so many comments from people that had such great results that I decided to do some research on it myself. After I did my research, I decided to give it a try. Im soooo glad I did! I started taking phentermine 37.5 mg in the first week of February 2008 and I have already lost 20 pounds!!!!
Avatar f tn com/health/pregnancy/phentermine-and-pregnancy#before-pregnancy The big risk is if you were to keep taking it, losing weight and such while trying to nourish your growing baby. So, I am pretty sure all should be fine. DO, please DO talk to your doctor when you start your doctor's visits. They will confirm this. Prenatal care is important! But I think everything from what I've read leans toward not being an issue for your baby that you took phentermine during early pregnancy.
Avatar f tn my SIL continues and IS losing weight. Unfortunately, daughter lost weight on it just long enough to get through her wedding in Sept then quit --- guess what?? She's gained back all + some....... B12 shots should give you energy, but they are not a weight loss drug. I take b12 shot every 2 weeks because I am deficient......I can guarantee that it will not make you lose weight, unless you exercise...and if you aren't deficient, it probably won't help you much at all.
Avatar f tn 22 pounds in seven weeks it now a easy task. gaining weight after some weeks are weight loss medication is quite normal so please follow the same, if you leave this method in half way then it may lead to dangerous effects. however consult with your doctor about this.
Avatar f tn I am currently on Wellbutrin and Lexapro. I was having much difficulty losing weight so I went to a Weight Loss Clinic, where they perscribed phentermine, hydrochlorthiazide and a fiber pill with calcium. I was wondering how dangerous this is and if I could/should stop my antidressant/anxiety medications abruptly or ween myself of them while I am on the weight loss pills.
Avatar n tn Are you having trouble losing weight on the Phentermine alone? I am on this too 15 mg twice a day. It isn't a complete stop appetite pill. I started out taking it once a day in the morning. Then later twice per day. I helps me to control how much I eat. I started in January and now I'm 37 pounds down. But before I started to take this medicine I got away from red meats, sweets, white bread. Basically carbs all around. That got me into a good eating habit.
Avatar m tn i started my weight loss program last month and i have lost 22 pounds so far. the medications i am taking is phentermine 37.5 and triamterene 37.5. i have tried so many expensive programs like jenny craig and weight watchers. don't get me wrong i lost weight but never this fast and easy. my doctor also suggested an injection absorbs fat in your midsection. i am really excited about my weight loss.
