    I know this sounds very strange, but does anyone ever have a hard time breathing when using Phen? It is almost like my lungs fill up with junk. I have a hard time breathing and then I get a hacking cough. I tried playing with phen to see if that is the problem and after a day or so of not taking it the cough goes away. Strange huh???? Does any one else have this problem?

    Try cutting it in half for a few days.
    Take only half and make sure you are drinking your water and eating.Your body has to get use to it!

    Kara,

    I may have done the same thing my first few days. I just thought I had a little virus and took decongestants and cough syrup til it stopped. It could have been the Phen with me too, but then again, it could have been a virus, like I thought.

    Hopefully you'll get it figured out pretty soon so you can get a good start on it.
    Have a great day!

    Yep I get the same thing. Sometimes I'm gasping for air. It's like somethings blocking the air flow. I also cough alot and hack nasty stuff up especially in the mornings. This usually happens when I first start taking it. Goes away if I continue to take it. To get air, I make myself yawn, which is wierd, but it opens the passage way for me to get a breath in. Its strange

    BTW, I tried taking it every other day to see if it would stop but it seemed to make it worse. Your body just has to get used to it I think.

    that happens to me. i dont know what happened to me, but i sort of grew into my breathing problems. i get that too. sometimes it is so bad at night that i have to have a breathing treatment. its not bad like i have pneumonia or something, but it is uncomfortable to me.
    just wait and it will stop.

    Hey!!
    Go to the doctor! I had 'walking pneumonia' for two weeks before I knew it, and you're symptoms sound just like it! I wound up taking 3 rounds of antibiotics because my lungs were so infected/inflamed. The s ucky part is, you don't really feel sick other than a really horrible cough. It may not be the phen. The blood vessels in your lungs may just be getting aggrevated enough on the phen to show the symptoms more clearly. Hope you are okay and can catch your breath soon!

    hey guys thanks. I now know I am not dreaming these things up. I have been off Phen for a week now and the symptoms are gone. Now that I know it will go away as my body adjusts I can go back on. Thanksgiving did a number on my toosh!!!! Thanks again.
