Bad reaction to Phentermine
I have been on phentermine 37.5mg 1 a day for less than 2 weeks. Just 1 week after starting I was not making any SENCE and so my children called 911 I was severly dehydrated put on IV fluids taken by ambulance. The scary thing is I don't remember anything that happened, not the EMTs coming in my room, the ride to the hospital or even being at the Hospital at all, or going home the next day. I had a total memory loss for 2 days and I didn't make any sence, it scared my kids pretty bad.
I told my Dr. And he took me off them, he said it was a mental psychosis from the phentermine and that it could happen again and be much more serious next time. Has anyone else experienced total memory loss like that? I did loss 15 lbs but the total memory loss and acting crazy is not worth the risk.....After my 2 say trip to the hospital I have now not been able to sleep at all for the last 3 nights but I'm just not tired ????? The only other symptom was very dry mouth and it felt as if I had hair stuck in the back of my throat. I have also noticed my vision is blury up close now and I have always had 20/20.
Short term memory loss
I have also been experiencing short term memory loss and lack of concentration. Could it be the Celexa I am taking that causes this instead?
AskDocWeb: Both memory loss and lack of concentration are possibilities. The product data sheet for Celexa (citalopram) lists memory problems and trouble concentrating under the heading of serious side effects that should be reported to your doctor.
Elevated heart rate
Is there anything to offset the elevated heart rate related to phenetermine...I'm 90-100 without it and around 125 with it.
AskDocWeb: While it is true that Phentermine causes some patient's blood pressure and heart rate to rise that may or may not be a major concern. With the help of an EKG and other diagnostic tests your doctor can determine whether or not the stress that Phentermine puts on your heart would pose an acceptable risk. If your increased heart rate poses a danger to your health then you may have to go with an alternative to Phentermine rather than treating this side effect with another drug.
Pain in left side of chest and tingling
I have been taking Phentermine for a little over a week this time around and lost a pretty good amount of weight and I noticed last night that the left side of my chest is hurting and the left side of my body is tingling including my lips. immediately I was frightened but I don't remember this drug having that type of affect on me the time I took it last year. is this serious? do I stop taking it?
AskDocWeb: Those are symptoms of a possible heart attack. We would call for emergency medical attention.
