Back pain and feeling anxious
Date: 6/10/2006
Hello, I took phentermine for 2 wks I stopped taking fri night I had a dull pain in my back n started to get very anxious is this withdrawl symptom will it go away?
Maria

AskDocWeb: Back pain and feeling anxious are not withdrawal symptoms from stopping Phentermine. Since Phentermine is a stimulant, you are more likely to feel anxious while taking it than after discontinuing use. Persistent symptoms should always be discussed with your doctor.


Cramps are unbearable
Date: 6/21/2006
I started Phentermine over a week ago and i also am having toe cramps, severe stomach spasms, severe leg cramps and my back muscles will seize up and spasm. I was wondering since it is not listed as a side effect why do some of us have the same symptoms and what can i do to help with these they wake me up all times of the nite. I really like what it has done for me so far but the cramps are unbearable. Thanks.
April

AskDocWeb: You might have your doctor review your medications to determine if any of the drugs might be contributing to the cramps. This problem is commonly reported by those taking cholesterol-lowering medicines (Lipitor, etc.) and certain asthma drugs.

We often encourage people to get plenty of potassium and magnesium. One surprising remedy for muscle cramps is a spoonful of yellow mustard. It may sound odd but many readers find it helpful.


Phentermine and fertility
Date: 6/27/2013
I have lost about 17 pounds on 30 mg Phentermine over 3 months, the only thing that I have is a little insomnia. I have increased my exercise to 4 days a week and have been testing to have IVF procedure. Can the Phentermine cause my FSH testing to be abnormally high?
Eva

AskDocWeb: First let's define those acronyms; IVF stands for in vitro fertilization, which involves combining eggs and sperm outside the body in a laboratory. FSH testing measures the level of follicle stimulating hormone found in human serum. This hormone regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the human body. In women FSH is often used as a gauge of ovarian reserve. In general, under 6 is excellent, 6-9 is good, 9-10 fair, 10-13 diminished reserve, 13+ very hard to stimulate. Phentermine is not known to raise FSH levels.


Dry mouth
Date: 6/28/2013
i took the diet pill phentermine for 3 months. I've got dry mouth and throth. How do i get reed of this?
Kathy

AskDocWeb: Dry mouth is a common temporary occurrence and in many cases it signifies the need to drink more water. The most common ways to relieve your dry mouth include:
  • Chew sugar-free gum or suck on sugar-free hard candies to stimulate the flow of saliva. Please note that xylitol is often found in sugar-free gum or sugar-free candies and may cause diarrhea or cramps if consumed in large amounts.
  • Limit your caffeine intake because caffeine can make your mouth drier.
  • Don't use mouthwashes that contain alcohol because they can be drying.
  • Stop all tobacco use if you smoke or chew tobacco.
  • Sip water regularly.
  • Try over-the-counter saliva substitutes such as Mouth Kote, Oasis Moisturizing Mouth Spray, or Biotene Oral Balance.
  • Try a mouthwash designed for dry mouth such as Biotene Dry Mouth Oral Rinse or ACT Total Care Dry Mouth Rinse.
  • Avoid using over-the-counter antihistamines and decongestants because they can make your symptoms worse.
  • Breathe through your nose, not your mouth.
  • Add moisture to the air at night with a room humidifier.
Note that if dry mouth becomes chronic, it may be time to check with your doctor.
