I have taken Phentermine 37.5 for 2month now I lost 8.5lbs the 1st month haven't weighed myself since to know if I lost more or Not. But since I have been taking Phentermine I have NEVER had the extreme ENERGY like others have. I do have the extreme Insomnia. I don't feel like I'm addicted cause I do go without it sometimes with NO problem. I often do it just to sleep better. My DOC looked at me like I was crazy when I told him I was SLEEPY when I 1st started it & I told him that I don't have Energy he said at some point he is gonna increase me to a pill & a half. I don't Trust that at all. There is only 2 Docs in my state I Know of that prescribes it & he is the Cheaper one that's why I have stayed with him..
I was taking Phentermine 37.5, i recently stopped taking them 2-3 weeks and i had a EKG for a surgery clearence and my EKG came back abnormal. i would like to know if it is abnormal due to me taking the pills? when can i get another EKG and it come out normal so i can have my surgery.
AskDocWeb: An abnormal EKG indicates a possible problem but it is up to your doctor to explain those results. A lot depends on the presence of other symptoms. Phentermine causes your blood vessels to tighten and narrow (Called vasoconstriction), which increases blood pressure. Cardiovascular side effects have included Up to 2.1% of Phentermine users report chest discomfort and up to 2.4% report having heart palpitations.
Really high blood pressure
I just stared taking this medication on 2/11/13. I have always been skinny but, I had a baby a year ago 12/12/11. I have had surgeries and the past on my stomach from my c section cut. So the medication I have been on have made me gain such as muscle relaxer lower-tabs and etc. I have been on 13 different pills for the last year and just had surgery 3 weeks ago.
My Doctor put me on these pills because how my weight jumped up from this last year. I went from 160 to 245. Since I started taking Phentermine Hy 37.5 mg I have had really hide blood pressure. For the first three day my blood pressure been 160-115 or higher. These pills are helping me with my weight and I don't wont to stop taking them.
During my pregnancy I had to have my baby 27 weeks early because I had Preeclampsia. After I had my baby it was still in my body in I was taking blood pressure medication and now I was taking off. But I still been having problem with my pressure off and on so my question is.... If I take blood pressure medication do you think it will help with migraines and the weak feeling? I just want to know what I can do still take this medication to lose weight but not feel sick. I really need this medication I never been this size and I cant do it by myself. Please help,
AskDocWeb: Phentermine can raise anyone's blood pressure, even those who are controlled with blood pressure medication so that probably wouldn't work. If you put too much emphasis on sticking with Phentermine your doctor may suspect a developing dependence. Please note that there are alternative ways to lose weight. Be sure to tell your doctor about the side effects.
