Phentermine prozac weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Phentermine prozac weight loss


Avatar n tn I went to a weight loss doctor who actual prescribed both to me so that it (phentermine)could have a long term affect not short term. Phentermine is really only good for 3 months at the most, for fast weight loss. Just make sure you are still eating while on these types of meds. It can cause alot of weight loss but also weight gain if you cant stay on a good diet you just gain it back. But good luck and congrats.
Avatar n tn I take topamax to control seizures and I must say that I am surprised doctors prescribe it for weight loss alone, and that you are willing to put up with the side effects of it just for weight loss when there are other weight loss drugs out there. The "goofiness and loss of words" bothers me tremendously. I have been taking it since April and that hasn't abated any. Unfortunately I did not experience any weight loss or loss of appetite from it like everyone says. I take 200 mg a day.
597390 tn?1219428950 I started going to a Dr. for weight loss. I get B12 shot, B6 shot and a Lipo shot every week. I also take adipex. I have been doing this for 3 weeks and have lost 2 pounds. I have been really watching what i eat. I take Prozac and Wellbutrin also. Im wondering if that may have some reason thats keeping my weight on. Any suggestons. I have noticed im aliitle on the edgey.
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn Hi! Thanks for responding! I got the perscription for phentermine from a Dr. at a Weight Loss Clinic. The medication was shipped to me from a pharmacy. The numbers on the pills are A 159 split by an indented line. I spoke with the clinic this a.m. and they couldn't figure out why the pills would not be supressing my appetite. 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?
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar n tn I've been taking phentermine for about 6 months now (I've lost a total of 22 pounds) and I recently heard that prozac could help with your diet loss. I was wondering if that was true because I've also heard that prozac w/ pentermine could cause added anxiety problems and could slow your weight loss down... any one know which is true?
Avatar n tn Last February (2006) I started taking phentermine for weight loss. I went from 175lbs to 150 lbs in a few short months. Unfortunately, I have always had some struggles with depression but had never been on medication for it before. Summer of 2006, I was having some major job stressors, family stressors, etc. and was still trying to lose weight and taking pehntermine off & on.
Avatar n tn I dont know how often I should take the shot and does that acctually support the weight loss? Please help! Also the 1st week I started with Phentermine well I felt thirsty and I was not hungry. After the 1st week I dont get as thirsty and I do get cravings.. Has this happened to everyone. Thanks your replys will be very appreciated.
Avatar m tn She has tried dexatrim max, zantrax, metabolife and none of them seem to help stop her hunger, and she cant seem to loose any weight. does anyone have any advice? what would be the best weight loss pill/dietary supplement?
Avatar n tn I found a great place where you can find the medication you need to loss wieght. I used to be over wieght 190 pounds. I took Phentermine and is really great. Well here is my secret website: www.bestonlineforeignpharmacies.
Avatar n tn I have been on Welbutrin for almost 4 months now and have noticed weight gain of about 8-10 pounds and I'm not eating anymore than I use to. I'm wondering if the 'weight-gain'/'weight-loss' issue is affected by whether or not people 'need' to lose weight before they start taking it. I consider myself to have a fairly high metabolism and I can maintain my weight quite easily. I know what causes me to gain weight and what I need to do to lose it.
Avatar n tn I had also added exercise during this time frame and really believe building muscle was the reason for no additional weight loss. I recently took a break off of the phentermine for about 10 days and took a 30 mg dose today. I'll keep you posted as to the effectiveness of this.

Avatar n tn My docotr wants to put me on zoloft for posr partum depression but i'm affraid it will cause weight gain, what about phentermine does it help with weight loss or is it terribly bad for you?
Avatar n tn I realize that I can always find another weight loss program that will prescribe the phentermine, but I wondered what my alternatives would be and if the current medical research does indeed support this combination of drugs.
Avatar n tn I have been on Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa and am currently on Effexor/Lithium w/Trazadone for sleep. ALL of these drugs made me gain SIGNIFICANT amounts of weight. Prozac and Serzone were weight neutral, but lost effectiveness or didn't work at all. I started antidepressants, at 27, 5'7" and 125 lbs. I am now 33 and weigh 178. When I have gone off my meds in the past (I used to have a fantasy that I wouldn't need them forever.
Avatar n tn I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the weight loss is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound weight loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
Avatar n tn my doctor put me on prozac for depression and another doctor put me on phentermine for weight loss. i was wondering if mixing the 2 drugs was o.k. to do or is this dangerous. what are the side effects if any to the drugs? should i be concerned and stop taking the drugs or proceed as usual. when my doctor put me on prozac i didn't tell them i was on phentermine because i don't want to stop taking it. so i haven't taken the prozac yet.
Avatar f tn Nowadays you will see a great deal of talk online about 'phen-pro', a combination of phentermine and prozac that is used for weight loss.
Avatar f tn I know metformin is helpful in other ways (I'm on it too), but I'm talking about the ones designed for weight loss. Those weight loss drugs are dangerous and it seems like every couple of years once they've been on the market long enough, they get banned because they have horrible long term side effects. It seems very risky. The healthiest thing you can do to lose weight is exercise! The other thing you can do is eat a healthy, balanced diet.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm sorry to post this question to you but I posted it on the Weight Loss/Dietary Forum but didn't get a response from anyone. Could you please help? I'm wondering if Phentermine (Ionamine) Diet Pills can be taken with Prozac? I've heard mixed reports of it being a lethal or perfect combination and don't want to try it without consulting a doc.

Avatar n tn Anyway, I was going to a weight loss clinic for my phentermine and injectables. The injectables were seriously marked up at the weight loss clinic, so I asked my regular doctor to write me a script and now I get a 100 dose vial for a $15 co pay. I'll have to get back to you on whether the B12 without the "M.I.C." packs the same punch.
465121 tn?1207838426 Today was the start of the phentermine and weight loss program prescribed by the GBMC weight loss program which for now includes reading information, setting goals, keeping a food journal, taking the phentermine 1 x per day, trying to increase my activity, and will follow up in 1 month to see if weight loss will help me breath better. I really am optimistic and I am willing to try anything to get back to my normal daily routine.
Avatar f tn First of all I am not a nurse ot doctor but I wanted to comment on the hair loss. I have also been prescribed topamax for pain, mood stabilizer and weight loss so I have been looking a lot on the net. I have seen a few things about hair loss. I wanted to comment on that. I have been a hairstylist for 24 years and one thing that I have noticed without doubt is that when one of my customers loses a significant amount of weight (25 lbs or more) they always have a loss of hair.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Topomax for one month. My doc prescribed it for me for weight loss.( 50 mg/day) I have not lost a pound...nor have I lost my appetite. Irritability? Yes. Weight Loss--no. I am on Zoloft 50mg/day for depression for 11 years now. Does anyone know if Zoloft can deter the weight loss? I have been struggling with my weigbt for so long and have heard of people having such positive reults from Topomax. Any advice from anyone?
Avatar n tn The headaches have improved and I can't wait until the FDA officially approves it for weight loss. So what if the soda tastes bad. Who needs it.
Avatar f tn It just seems like a vicious cycle. Not to mention that all of my friends are doing the medical weight loss with the phentermine and the B-12 shots and they look amazing. I said to myself "I can do this!" So I went and paid almost $300.00 to start the program. I told the doctor about my heart issues and once again he looked at me like I was crazy and told me that if I was that worried to only take a half of a pill.
