On a more technical note, the actual chemical and biological interaction of the phentermine compound with the central nervous system is explained as follows. Clinically depressed I turned to food to help me feel better. I haven't had "racing" heart or any "headaches" either. Cant wait to see what this medication and life style changes do for me!!!!!! I can handle that!!
I was put on Phentermine to help me get my weight down so I didn't wind up a full diabetic with hypertension and a bad heart. Diabetes and heart issues run in my family so I am at high risk and in my 40's, so needed to make a change. I had my 4 month check-up last week - I have lost almost 35 lbs, and my cholesterol and LDL numbers had each dropped 50 points, and my A1C dropped. My Endocrinologist was very happy with my numbers and I am continuing on with the Phentermine.
I would recommend Phentermine to anyone who is frustrated with dieting that doesn't work. This drug helped me stick to a healthier way of eating - no diet! I eat more fruits, veggies, lean protein, good carbs, and have cut-out the junk food, candy, sugary drinks, and fast food. The Phentermine curbs my cravings and appetite so that I can make healthier choices. I am confident that I can stick to this way of healthier eating so that once I am off the Phentermine, I can stick to my healthier lifestyle.
Seems there are mixed reviews about this pill. But what seems to be consist is that of what I went through only after a 4 day use. My weight loss goal was only 12 pounds away from that hotlink cocktail dress winking at you on a hanger in a closet. Although this could have been achieved with exercise and proper eating, exercising seemed to be least of my worries as I would work out at least 3 days a week with a min.
However it was the proper eating part is where I fell short. My appetite had more in mind than losing weight. I could not put the food down no matter how hard I tried and I got no better with age. Phentermine was considered during a visit to a weight loss clinic as a stronger dose from the others. I went with it in hopes to shed some quick pounds in conjunction with my 3 day workouts.
To my surprise unexpected negative side effects starting taking effect immediately. Day 1 to day 4, fourth day I quit. List of side effects 1. Insomnia of the worse kind. I was always one to hit the z's early enough to feel refreshed the next day so sleep was never an issue before. Talking sleep days, I had no idea that it was from Phentermine until I went and did the research on day 4 writing this review.
I thought my lack of sleep had to do with my already stress in my personal life that. Right after a meal or water I would have to throw up to calm it. Depression came quickly from the already stress that was there. Increased heart rate's when you move suddenly almost feeling like its beating out of your chest like a few seconds away from a heart attack. I may have left some side effects out but for the most part this sums up my experience.
It is not for me and I do believe for the better half of these reviewer here we can all contest to the same issues while taking it. Yes you may see a pounds lost from taking it. But think about it - would you just rather work harder in your meal and workout plan? Is a health scare worth those few pounds. Hope this review helps. I say think about it and do your research before and not taking it like I did.
The first week on our new medication and diet, we went on vacation and got married. Much to our surprise, we came back weighing less. During the next four months my husband has lost a total of 50 lbs while I struggle at 12 lbs. I thought the hardest part would be having to eat more. I was lucky if I ate 2 meals before. But, I now eat 3 meals and 2 snacks throughout the day, containing at least 20 mg of protein each meal.
Have cut out breads, grains, and sweets. And have increased veggies and added salad to nearly every meal. I drink at least 60 oz of water daily. I can definitely see the changes in my body since starting exercising. My body is firmer and toning nicely. However, the scale teeters on. I know I need to add at least 30 mins of cardio to my daily activity as well. As a matter of fact, I am sluggish and unmotivated, not even wanting to work in my workshop.
And my sex drive has decreased dramatically. I've suffered from insomnia for 15 yrs. Have tried countless meds, visualization, and essential oils to name a few. I think stopping my ADHD med has negatively impacted many aspects of my daily life. I do feel better having changed what I eat, but overall, I'm not happy and will be talking with doctor on next appointment.
My doctor placed me on this medication to aid me in my weight loss journey to join the United States Army. I have been on this drug for about 3 months now and I don't have any bad things to say about it. In the beginning you will get that super boost of energy and then it will fade away a bit. If you stop taking the drug because you feel like you suddenly stopped losing weight, you need to look at your own life and ask yourself "am I doing all the work or am I relying on this pill.
You have to put in the work. I was when I started this pill in May It's now August and I lost 30 pounds on this drug. I go to crunch fitness everyday and I do min of cardio and light weights. If you start to feel crazy or have hallucinations ask yourself "how much did I eat today? Only reduce your calories by a small amount and truly feed your body! The drug is not the issue. It's your lifestyle that is. I have lost 4 lbs but it has not curbed my hunger at all.
I exercise 4 days a week. Only experienced dry mouth a few days which I guess is good. I have not had the energy boost that others mention. I will finish my 30 day rx but will not waste my money on a refill. It may work for others but not for me and I cannot recommend it. I started taking this at 7mg in I was averaging lb weight loss every month. After 6 months I was down 51lbs and excited. Then I hurt my knee and had 2 knee surgeries in 4 months Started gaining weight like crazy.
Last year, I had a hysterectomy and the weight kept coming. I've gained back the 51lbs plus This time to keep it off!!! A friend introduced me to this drug through a link he sent to me. I tried it out and within 3 weeks of using it I lost a lot of weight which is what I wanted. Now I am so happy with my new shape. I also want you to share in my blessing by reading up more about this wonderful weight loss drug here; http: I wish you all the best.
I absolutely loved Phentermine. The first week I took it in half doses. I had energy to the moon. I cleaned like I was going to have a health inspection. I lost weight for 5 months. I also lost my own sanity I was so easy to anger, could not be pleased, everyone made me angry, nagging, hurtful, rude, nights of no sleep or sleep maybe a few hours.
I lost over 50 pounds on the scale but looking at it in clear eyes I lost water weight and muscle. My body was starving. I was not told how to take it or how to take care of myself on it. Hair loss, bad skin, dry mouth, chapped lips. The list could go on forever. I took myself off this medication. I was not seeing results and the doctor thought I should continue even though I had already been on it too long without even a break.
I gained all my weight back as I got my first period since starting the medication. I do not recommend this at all. My life has changed and not for the better. I was unable to lose weight no matter how hard I tried. I thought I was eating smart and small enough portions. I walked every day. When I was 58 yrs old I said I need to lose 50 lbs before I turn I began making better choices and eating smaller portions. I lost the 50 lbs I wanted to lose during that first year.
I still take the two drugs faithfully and have never went off of them. It will be 3 yrs in May and my total weight loss is 54 lbs. I purposely hold my own and eat a little larger portions than when I began the program. I have never had any side effects from either drug. I plan on staying on these two drugs forever. They don't have any long term side effects.
I also take a blood pressure pill and thyroid pill with several vitamins. I have been taking Phentermine for a couple of years now. I have actually gained weight on this pill Up to 7 pounds in less than 1 month. I used to weigh around before my hysterectomy. Afterwards I jumped up to and I am now around Still taking pills and no big losses. I did lose 5 lbs in 1 month.
I just can't seem to get the weight off. I do not overeat I am on the move all day at work and was walking every day until weather got bad. I don't know what to do. He wrote it for 5 pills 3 times a day. That would have killed a horse I'm sure The office just said "Oh well I started taking 30mg Phentermine on October 25th, I felt great, didn't have any negative side effects, nothing that would make me decide to stop taking the pills.
I lost about 10 pounds in a little over a month. Last night I had shaky hands and boy, is the dry mouth bad! I drink a lot of diet juice and water so I'm not dehydrated. I'm not feeling any of the other bad side effects like anxiety. I am down 15 pounds though, after completely changing my diet and eating between calories per day. I try to exercise when I can but with college, a social life and a boyfriend, it's hard. I was prescribed phentermine by my GP who was aware of my low dose BP and depression meds to help in weight reduction.
I feel I'm 80 lbs overweight. This was around January and upon completing 1st bottle I had lost a bit. GP would not prescribe again until I was off it for a while. Started my 2nd round in March Needless to say, I stopped the phentermine and got myself straight to the doctor's office. SIX months later I am still taking quadruple my original dosage for high BP which is keeping it in check.
I'm due a checkup next week and plan to discuss with him whether or not this medicine has somehow affected my heart negatively. I'm really concerned with the fact that I have not been able to return to my original 80mg dose and worry that it's caused some sort of permanent damage to my heart. As a result, I have not seen any marked increase in depression, irritation or insomnia. I have noticed an increase in dry mouth, so I have increased my water intake, which is a great aid in weight loss, anyway.
Many weight loss supplements include chromium to produce the same affect and induce increased water intake. And, I would definitely recommend using a dry-mouth toothpaste, such as Biotene. As an additional precaution, I plan to skip Phentermine on weekends. I decided to try Phentermine after my dad reported to good results my niece and her husband have had using it. Becoming about 70 lbs overweight, despite portion control and not eating very much - at all, I became extremely frustrated.
And, working out just wasn't helping. Frankly, I got mad and disgusted with myself. I have been using Phentermine Though my pants seem to be fitting a bit looser. I also suffer from bipolar disorder. I feel like I'm losing my mind. I can't stand loud noises. It aggravates me bad, but as far as weight loss it helps. Mentally I'm exhausted more than I am physically. Can anyone give me a explanation for this or any advice of what I should do, go off them medicine or cut the dosage in half? Like many others, my doctor prescribed Phentermine wanting me to lose a few pounds.
The first couple of weeks the only thing I had a problem with was dry mouth. After about the third week, I started to have anxiety attacks, crying all the time, depression and heart palpitations. It got so bad I almost ruined my relationship. I told my fiance about it and he insisted I stop taking the drug and couldn't believe my doctor would even prescribe something like Phentermine knowing the side effects. In less than 30 days this drug almost destroyed my entire life.
I'm normally a happy and joking person, but the last month has been the most emotionally painful time in my life all because of this little pill. Losing weight on this medication is not worth my sanity. No doubt this pill helps you lose weight. I have been taking it almost 2 weeks and lost 10lbs, which I know I'm going to gain it all back. This pill might help some but for me the side effects are horrible. I'm obsessed with losing weight but not with this pill.
The first 3 days were amazing. I had lots energy. I did have cotton mouth and sweated like nobody's business. I drink a lot of water anyways but had to triple the intake because I was so thirsty. I am a very happy go lucky person. Yes I have the normal every day stresses, like everyone else. But by no means am I a suicidal person. I don't take any kinds of meds and I'm a very healthy person with no medical issues. The 4th day on this pill, I started having self-doubt. I didn't think anything about it.
I kept taking the pills, everyday became a struggle. I started hating myself and felt that everyone hated me. I cried all the time for no reason. I was mad at myself for feeling this way. I talked with my friends, I even talked with my husband. Everything they told me became twisted in my head. I had convinced myself everyone hated me and I didn't need to exist.
I've only been off the pill today and have had some withdrawal issues. I hope these feelings will go away quickly and I can be back to myself soon. Just be careful taking these pills and follow the doctor instructions to a T. And if you feel anything out of the way call your doctor immediately. I started taking prescribed phentermine for weight loss. I weighed lbs and 6 weeks later I am at and still losing weight.
However, I had some issues, depression, panic attacks that would happen every few min without medication. I had a thyroid issue and ADD and a low libido. I had these things for years started in my 30's I am now Phentermine has given me back my life. I have no real depression any more on this medication. I feel energized without feeling jittery.
I can think clearer and it controls my ADD. I no longer get panic attacks. I have done some research on this drug and society has been SO misinformed by the media. I think the first week I took it I had some heart acceleration and headaches but it disappeared. The only thing I don't like is that it causes constipation. I have high blood pressure and am on medication for it. However since I lost weight I take less thyroid and blood pressure meds now.
So this drug may not be a "fits all" type drug, but for me it works. I still losing weight, feel great, have energy and libido and can think more clearly. I don't know about everyone else but this ADD girl with her thyroid, lagging energy, foggy brain thinks this is a miracle and I hope that I can continue with this although maybe on a milder dose. Do your homework look on government sites, look at real medical sites like top medical school. Don't just go to blog type sites. There is real information and tests on this drug and it has been on the market since No one has died or overdosed strictly from taking this drug.
Also, you can stay on this drug long term. You just need to monitor your blood pressure and heart rate. I do my heart rate daily on my phone it has a sensor and I have a portable machine for my blood pressure. I have been normal on all fronts. With any medication you need to find out if it has adverse reactions with any other drugs you take. Only take this drug under a doctor's prescription and care. This is for people who need to lose 50 or more pounds.
Basically obese and morbidly obese. Talk to your doctor or several until you get all the answers you need. Good luck in your weight loss. My physician prescribed the medication in February and I've taken it on and off up until July I have transitioned off the medication and proud to say that I have changed my eating, drinking and physical exercise habits. My blood pressure is much better and my sleep apnea has not been an issue.
I don't breathe as heavy or feel so short of breath or tired on short walks. My stamina has greatly increased, which is good since I have three toddlers and work full time. In addition, I work out almost every day and balance my meal portions. Typically, water is all that I drink and at times I will sneak in lemonade. Clinical studies showed that when Phentermine HCL was prescribed along with diet and exercise, patients lost more weight than those who were given a placebo sugar pill.
It is difficult to give an exact amount of weight that you can expect to lose with Phentermine HCL 15mg, because weight loss is complex and involves many factors. Often times, people gain weight over the course of many years, while studies can only see how much weight is lost in a short period of time. Phentermine 15mg works similarly to a widely-used class of drugs called amphetamines. These drugs stimulate the central nervous system, which gives people more energy.
This has two effects. First, it causes your metabolism to work extra hard, so that you burn more calories through exercise and movement. Second, it can make you feel full for longer periods of time between meals. In most cases, people who took Phentermine HCL 15mg lost the most weight in the first few weeks of treatment.
After trying it out, you should speak with your doctor about whether or not to continue taking it for the long term. Your body may become accustomed to your dose of Phentermine HCL after a few weeks, but you should not increase your dose without talking to your doctor. If you take the drug differently from how your doctor prescribes it, you can risk serious Phentermine side effects and dangers. First, it is recommended that you take Phentermine HCL in the morning, either right before or after breakfast.
This helps kickstart your metabolism so that you will burn calories throughout the day. You should not take Phentermine HCL 15mg or any dosage late in the day or in the evening, because it may cause insomnia trouble sleeping. You should also avoid drinking alcohol while taking Phentermine HCL, because the effects of both alcohol and Phentermine HCL can be exaggerated when the two are combined. Some people should not take Phentermine HCL.
If you have very serious hypertension, hypothyroidism, a psychological condition that causes agitated states, or a history of drug abuse, then Phentermine HCL is not right for you. Stimulants work to boost the metabolism and give you more energy so you can burn more calories. But for people with heart or psychological problems, taking stimulants can be dangerous.
This is because there have not been enough studies performed to see if Phentermine HCL has an impact on babies. If you are pregnant or nursing, make sure you discuss this with your doctor. While there are some Phentermine 15 and Talk to your doctor today and see if weight loss drugs like Belviq or Phentermine HCL 15mg is right for you.
