Phentermine metabolism

Common Questions and Answers about Phentermine metabolism


Avatar n tn After taking phentermine for almost 2 months I still have not lost much weight. I heard an ad for banital on the radio and am wondering if I should switch to it or stay on the phentermine for another couple of months to see if will work better. I know that you shouldn't take the banital if you have diabetes, are allergic to shellfish, or are pregnant or nursing; I am none of these. Also I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol. So should I try the banital or not?
660151 tn?1224856335 I have been taking Phentermine for 1 month today along with a B12 pill... I have been working out a lot and I eat less. But I have lost NOTHING! I do not drink caffinated drinks as they say the phentermine will release from your body faster, just TONS of water. What can I be doing wrong! I figure I must have a crazy metabolism. It is extremely discouraging to see all the weightloss from others and I stay the same. I see statements where people have to remind themselves to eat...
Avatar n tn Hey everyone! Went to the dr. on Tuesday and they upped my dose of phentermine--15 mg. in the am and 30 mg in the afternoon for a total of 45 mg altogether. Does this dosage seem too high? I know the 37.5 mg is the highest dose and taken only once a day. Also, I was given 30 mg. a few years back and only took it once a day. Thanks for any advice!
579324 tn?1276057874 i would like to know if there is any reason why i should not take methimazole and phentermine at the same time and/or if the phentermine could possibly cause my hyperactive thyroidism to return.
Avatar n tn hello, I'm new to this sight. i wanted to ask about phentermine 37.5mg. I started taking this and it made me feel crazy and have a headache. Is this one of the side affects or will your boby just have to get use to it. and how long does it usually take, also it makes my heart race and in the afternoon I'm so tried i can't hardy move. I also HAVE Micro prolapse will this affect that any?
Avatar f tn B12 can't do anything bad to you really, since its just a vitamin booster. It helps increase your metabolism and up your energy slightly. The phentermine is basically a low grade amphetamine, so you have to be clear of heart/ organ problems. I found it really decreased my appetite at first and then did very little. After about 4 weeks, I also found it really made it hard for me to sleep through the night.
Avatar n tn It is speculated that this action, along with as yet undetermined effects on the metabolism are responsible for the loss of appetite seen with this class of drugs. Phentermine can be appropriate for individuals whose eating habits or behavior alone is responsible for excessive weight gain. Research into the effectiveness of Phentermine diet pills shows an average weight loss of 2-8 kg more than placebo for the same duration of treatment.
Avatar n tn Does anybody know any Doctors in the Wichita Kansas area who will give me a script for Phentermine? Drs in my town will not script it but I heard a DR in Wichita will.
1630756 tn?1299829663 Adipex thats a Phentermine alternative. Thank you for answering my question, I was really worried...I have 2 babies and i'm not ready for a 3rd baby any time soon lol.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed Duromine (slow-release resin of phentermine) 30mg (so not the fast acting 37.5mg Adipex-P a lot are familiar with). I don't know this doctor very well as mine has retired, and he is aware of my medical history obviously, and my struggle with weight loss as well as my attempt to keep my diet as healthy as I can (despite occasionally messing up from time to time due to lethargy, stress from work and genuine hunger...) Can I trust that my blood pressure won't skyrocket???
Avatar n tn I began to take the B12 injections w/ the Phentermine on 07/03/06 and started at 214 lbs and now weigh in at 200 lbs. I lost 14 pounds in 24 days! My question to others that are doing similar diet program, Are you on a specialized diet? I have been instructed to cut the carbs and eat high protien lean meats with lots of greens... Please advise, is this necessary? Because I have talked to others that seem to say they aren't doing a specialized diet like that. Thanks!
Avatar n tn she lost approx. 40 pnds while doing the combination of phentermine 37.5 mg, b12 injections, and triamterene (water pills. I live in kentucky and can not find a place to get the B12 injection. I called the clinic to see if I could get a RX and they dont do that you have to get them at their clinic. If anyone has any suggestions about this program or the injections please let me know. The clinic gives you 2 monthes of pills and your supposed to go in and get weekly injections.
1401296 tn?1280803133 I am trying to find information on the medications given to me at a local weight loss clinic I went to last Friday, They did lab work and my prescriptions were Phentermine 30mg combined in the same capsule with 5 HTP and also Lipo B injections that are being mailed to my home. Is this safe? I paid quite a bit to feel so afraid of the whole thing. I'm just very desperate to lose weight.
Avatar n tn For the record, I took my 1st phentermine yesterday but not the thyroid. Felt fine all day - was worried about the phentermine making me crazy or jittery or forget about food but it didn't. I think it worked great. I'd been warned that I'd have to force myself to eat but I got light headed and felt hunger enough to eat regularly throughout the day to keep my metabolism up. This was a positive experience.
Avatar n tn Is anyone taking phendimetrazine along with phentermine for appetitie control/weight loss? I build up a tolerance pretty quickly to 37.5 mg of phentermine and I remember my Dr. said if that happened she would prescribe something for me to take in the p.m. to curb my appetite. Was wondering how it worked for anyone who has tried it.
Avatar m tn I decided to go to a local Weight Loss Clinic because I had already exhausted my options, and they prescribed 30mg of Phentermine as an appetite suppressant. I didn't really realize the risk of dependency or how powerful this drug could be. I went from 150 lbs to 140 lbs in about a month and have stayed there, although that isn't my ideal weight. However, I didn't want to become addicited or reliant on a Rx. I stopped taking phentermine yesterday, and I am terrified of gaining weight.
Avatar n tn First of all I am really enjoying all the info I am getting her as I do research on the HCG, B12, and KT's book (which I do have) Now, I found a doc that will give me up to 2 B12 shots (1cc each, I think) per week. He also prescribed phentermine for me. First day I felt awesome an hour after the shot and taking my first pill. Tons of energy, happy , bright, alert, with it. I didnt think the B12 should work like that so fast so I assumed it was a side effect of the phen.
Avatar n tn I have started Phentermine and B12 shots once a week. I went today for my first week weight check and my second weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
Avatar n tn It sounds kinda dangerous to mix Phen with something else that increases your metabolism (clen). To increase your metabolism I assume it also is increasing your heartrate as I don't know how you'd increase metabolism without doing so. So two drugs at once that are increasing the work of your heart sounds dangerous. I would definitely get a professional opinion which this of course IS NOT!
Avatar m tn A doctor prescribed me a combo of Redotex in the morning and 30mg Phentermine HCl at lunch (for weight loss). Is it dangerous? These are the active ingredients of Redotex: o Tri iodothyronine (Triyodotironina) 75 mcg. A hormone used to increase the metabolic rate of tissues. o Norpseudoephedrine (Clorhidrato de D Norseudoefedrina) 50 mg. An amphetamine like drug. o Atropine sulfate (Sulfato de Atropina) 0.36 mg. Used as a respiratory and circulatory stimulant. o Aloin (Aloina) 16.2 mg.
Avatar n tn I am with 3 shots a week and 1 37.5 phentermine the pill I forget to eat, but that cotton mouth is good at reminding me to drink! My husband is excited too because he knows when I find something and commit to it, the results are undoubtedly guaranteed. So as of 9/21 my weight was 251 and here is where I'd like to chart the progress as well as hear from y'all with your war stories! So glad I stumbled across here by googling the use of the hormone for weight loss! Good luck to us all!
Avatar n tn I started to take phentermine and I did not like the side effects. I was really sleepy and felt sick to my stomach all the time. Does anyone know of a really good Appetite suppressant that does not have any side effects...and works!?
Avatar n tn They can and it is normal. That is why some "weight loss centers" use phentermine along withthe injections. again, this type of treatment does not keepthe weight off or allow for an improved metabolism.
Avatar n tn They started me on Phentermine and B12 shots and a fat burner shot. The staff is wonderful and the place is adorable. They also do laser hair removal, cellulite reduction and skin/facial type things. Does anyone else use Oasis in Brandon? Also should I ask about getting HCG shots? They did not mention those but after reading the forum(s) I am interested.
Avatar m tn Try the hcg instead of phentermine. Phentermine basically tricks your brain into thinking you are not hungry all the while your brain is starving for glucose. HCG does not trick your body, but allows you to metabolize stored fat, thereby allowing you to lose weight with little hunger. Most people can lose 1/4 to 1 pound a day unless they have a pre-existing health issue that complicates things. Lipo/B-12 shots are an excellent adjunct for the hcg program, as they help your liver function.
Avatar n tn Depending on what diet pills your taking. Most Rx speed up your metabolism and in a result they will eat threw your pill faster. I’m on phentermine to help lose some baby weight. I notice some spotting brown and red for about a week and a half in the middle of the month but I did get my period on time. I would call your pharmacist and ask, it doesn’t madder if its over the counter or not. Hope this helped!
Avatar n tn Hi I take a B12 shot every other week in conjunction with a daily phentermine pill. Basically the function of the Vitamin B shot is to increase your metabolism and boost your energy level. Like most diet plans, carbs (at least the useless ones with white flour or sugar) are generally not recommended. I still eat them, but with less frequency and I noticed that when I stick with whole grains and avoid the sugar, I drop more weight. Good Luck to You!
Avatar n tn I using Phentermine. Choose any shop at and try this ... Great Results !!!
Avatar f tn Pill are usually the last resort. Just cut off juck food and stay active. to keep yourself motivated have a cheat day ones a month; if not is going to get really boring. Btw the pill that "increase your metabolism" is marketing ********. The metabolism you are born with it will chance during puperty, after that you will stay with it for the rest of your life, it does not increase if you take pills. You can help you metabolism, yes. but not increase the rate.
927140 tn?1244213651 I just went to an endocronologist and he has put me on Cytomel and then I'm already on Synthroid and Celexa. In two weeks he is wanting me to start on Phentermine. I have had lots of weight gain. I'm a little concerned about these BIG changes, but I do want help. Has anybody heard of this combination in meds?
