14 year old daughter
I have a 14year old daughter that is over weight and i want her to start taking the pill. My only concern is that she still has not gotten her period and was scared the pills will effect her pubrty.
AskDocWeb: According to the manufacturer Phentermine should not be taken by children under 16 years of age. Please check with your family doctor for advice about your daughter's weight.
I have been taking phentermine for about 7 days. I notice that I dont get hungry as much. I eat once or twice a day. I also started to get a vaginal burning when urinating and now it has started to go away a little. Is this a side effect I can ignore for a few more days or couple weeks?
AskDocWeb: Vaginal burning after urinating is not specifically mentioned but it is included in the category of difficulty urinating. This is listed as one of the possible side effects of Phentermine that should be reported to your doctor.
Vaginal burning when urinating is one of the most common symptoms of a yeast infection. Although it is most likely caused by a yeast infection, vaginal burning can also be caused by a urinary track infection, vaginosis, or a sexually transmitted disease. If you haven't been sexually exposed to possible STDs then you may want to consider a popular home remedy such as drinking plenty of fluids and cranberry juice.
Half a Phentermine at a time
I've been taking Phentermine off and on for a few years. Just started back today. Took a half early morning and the other half early afternoon. Is this okay to do? Thanks!
AskDocWeb: Some patients are instructed to take half of a pill twice a day but check with your doctor before making any changes to your treatment. Remember that Phentermine is a stimulant so the closer you take it to bedtime the more likely it is to interfere with sleep.
Are leg pains normal while taking phen? Thanks
AskDocWeb: Leg pains are not a normal side effect of Phentermine so check with your doctor.
Other weight loss supplements?
Is it safe to take phen with other weight loss supplements such as Green Tea tablets, 5-hour energy shots, Relacore, etc? Thanks.
AskDocWeb: Hello again Crystal! Phentermine is a prescription drug and all supplements you are considering using should be discussed with your doctor. What might be safe for one individual might be lethal for someone else, it depends on your medical history and current condition.
Phentermine and fertility
I just got my first bottle of Phentermine and will start tomorrow but I'm a bit concern if taking this meds will affect me in the long run when wanting to have another baby. I plan to possibly get pregnant in another year or so!!! can this affect fertility?
AskDocWeb: Earlier this year the FDA changed the pregnancy category for Phentermine from C to X: animal or human studies show adverse effects on fetus and the risk of using this drug during pregnancy outweigh the benefits. Phentermine has NOT been shown to affect fertility but if you are trying to conceive then discuss this with your doctor.
Serious chest pain
I have been on phentamine for 1 1/2 weeks now. I have lost 3 lbs, but last night I had serious chest pain on my left side (still do this morning) and a couple of times shooting pain on my right side. I am stopping the med and with all of the reports of heart prob, I think we all should. Losing weight the easy way isnt worth death. Just because your doc prescribes it doesnt mean its safe.
AskDocWeb: Sugarbomb, your post about Adipex and urine color was moved to the Adipex forum.
Pregnancy after taking Phentermine
I have been taking phentermine 37.5 on and off for two years and would like to get pregnant. How long is it advisable to wait for the drug to leave my body before we start trying? Thank you!
AskDocWeb: In order to minimize any possible health risks for pregnancy, we believe it would be a good idea to be completely off the drug for one month before conception.
I have taken phentermine 37.5 in the past it work great I stopd n recently had ababy now I jus got this product again but it is regular strength 160mg I was wondering if taken two regular strength would equal up to one extra strength?
AskDocWeb: If you buy Phentermine from a legitimate source it will come with directions for use. Please follow those directions because you only get one body - take care of it. Taking Phentermine as prescribed will avoid the trouble caused by drug abuse.
I am 16 years old just 5"0 and my mom gave me phetermine to take once a day in the morning, i am 104 pounds so not extremely overweight but i feel and look to chunky for how short i am. is it safe to be taking this medication? and when i want to stop how do i do it without withdraws?
AskDocWeb: According to the weight chart we use from the American Child Health Association, you are not overweight. If your name is not on the prescription then it is not safe to take and taking it is also likely to be illegal.
