Common Questions and Answers about Phentermine and diethylpropion


Avatar n tn I have been taking Phentermine for almost a month now. Not a tremondous amount of weight loss but I do not have much to loose so it will come off slower. I actually stopped this last week because if a terrible sinus infection and all the meds I had to take for that. Yuck. So I am way off with my eating, taste buds not interested in healthy foods when I am sick. The Dr gave me a RX for Diethylpropion because he saw I was low on Phen. I was wondering about anyones experiences with this drug.
Avatar n tn I'm in the process of switching to a new dentist and the new patient form I had to fill out asked "Have you ever taken any combination of the drug known as 'fen-phen'. This includes phentermine (Adipex, Fastin, etc) and/or fenfluramine (Pondimin)." What does it matter if I have taken this? I haven't taken fen-phen, but I have and do occasionally take phentermine?
Avatar n tn Abrupt stoppage of the drug can cause withdrawal with fatigue and depression. Phentermine is potentially addicting. Phentermine is not recommended for patients with symptomatic heart disease including rhythm problems. SIDE EFFECTS: 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 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.
Avatar n tn Where my friends who are heavier than me are dropping about 6-8 pnds a week. I am 5'3 and started at 129 and am now 120 after 6 weeks on phentermine. The last 2 weeks I stayed the same. I don't know if the size you start at has something to do with how fast you drop. My doc say yes, but I'm not sure. I only eat a small lunch and healthy dinner. I don't know if the pill stops working as well if you don't eat enough and put your body into starvation mode. Does anyone have these similar issues?
Avatar n tn i too was on phentermine and kinda hit a wall - stopped working and couldn't sleep well.. i requested meridia (big $) to replace/in addition to the phen and it gave me terrible gastric pains. doc then had me try the phen in the morning and diethylpropion (tenuate) in evening (where i was having sleep issues). worked wonderfully. i had considered asking for phendimetrizine but i read it was a schedule 3 drug and i had read a bariatric magazine article that casually linked it to pph.
Avatar n tn This is the same mechanism of action as other stimulant appetite suppressants such as diethylpropion and phendimetrazine. The neurotransmitters signal a fight-or-flight response in the body which, in turn, puts a halt to the hunger signal. As a result, it causes a loss in appetite because the brain does not receive the hunger message.
674088 tn?1231865321 I was given Phentermine HCL to take in the mid morning and Diethylpropion to take in the mid afternoon. I haven't heard much of the Diethylpropion. I also was given a B12/Lipo Shot and an HCG shot. I was told to drink a gallon of water a day. I haven't been hungry much. However my vision seems funny. OH WELL. I filled up a Hawaiian Punch Jug (1 gallon) and have been trying to tackle it. It's around 4:30PM and I have half the jug left. The doctor stressed eatting a high protein breakfast.
674088 tn?1231865321 Phentermine for the morning and phendimetrazine in the afternoon. The first time I went to the Doc they prescribe diethylpropion for the afternoon. When I went this time I saw another Doc and they switched it to phendimetrazine. These medications help to curb my appetitite. Like today I ate a protein bar and that's all I want. I tried to eat a small turkey sub but I took 1 bite and felt full/sick. Was the 500 calorie diet hard? And how long did you stay on it for?
Avatar n tn You got the shot a couple times for a starter and where able to stop getting the shot switching to just the pill (phentermine). and then from just the pill to nothing? I feel like i need a starter and then I’ll be ok. I just had my 1st baby 2 months ago and am 13 pounds over weight. I'm looking for a little boost in hopes for just a couple treatments and then hold off the weight on my own. COMMENTS PLEASE - - ANYONE?
