481269 tn?1208280771 I have taken Phentermine several times in the past and I was told by my DR. to AVOID drinking alcohol while taking phentermine. Phentermine is a stimulant that is similar to an amphetamine. It is an appetite suppressant that affects the central nervous system. 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.
Avatar f tn Definitely check with your doctor and have him/her run some tests. It could be something completely unrelated to drinking and alcohol is just exacerbating it.

Avatar f tn According to the Zoloft® (sertraline hydrochloride) prescribing information, drinking alcohol while taking Zoloft is not recommended. The medication and alcohol both act upon similar chemicals in the brain. So the concern is that Zoloft will increase the effects of alcohol -- whether this is increasing depression symptoms or affecting motor skills. So I would say NO. Thats just me. You are very young and it could cause your anxiety to go threw the roof.Good luck to you !

Avatar m tn Due to a genetic condition, I can not drink anymore. However, I understand what you are talking about. When I have a severe panic attack, I feel a "prickly heat" all over. While I understand and in no way judge drinking alcohol in general, it may be something you can't do until you have the anxiety under control. One gets impaired from drinking (and I am not saying drunk, even just buzzed) and those with anxiety can have issues with the feeling of losing control.
Avatar n tn I have recently lost a lot of weight and I have struggled with my weight for a long time but there is no quick fix, you need to follow a plan of healthy eating and exercise and I know that is not what you want to hear but losing weight is a life choice and you will need to think about what you eat for the rest of your life as your body has got to be with you for the rest of your life.
