    Hello

    although I do not drink coffee my DR. said not to drink it while on Phentermine because the medication raises your blood pressure and since caffeine does the same its not a good idea to combine them..

    I drink a coffee every work morning. I think it varies from person to person, a lot like alcohol. Some can handle it while on the phen and some can't, so it's probably best to play it safe until you know how your body reacts to the phen.

    Hope that helps!

    Large mug of coffee every morning here! Of course I use fat free, sugar free (cough cough) creamer in it. I would never make it through my day if I didn't. Sometimes I even have a diet pepsi can, but not always.

    Add me to the coffee drinking club. Now, when I was on phen the first time, I could not drink coffee and take phen. Not because of BP (I have super low BP even on phen), but because I could not sleep. They are both stimulants. Now, I sleep just fine. I have one large cup of coffee in the AM, then water the rest of the day. Guess it helps flush it out. Oh, and I will occasionally have a coke zero in the evening and have no problem sleeping.

    Both phen and caffeine are CNS stimulants: they make your heart rate and BP go up. Depending on a persons sensitivity, you may not be able to take other CNS Stimulants while taking phen such as caffeine, tobacco, cold medications, tea etc. Most docs will warn you against drinking coffee while on phen. If you find your heart racing I would definitely cut out the coffee. For myself the first couple weeks I was on phen coffee would make my heart rate skyrocket. Now that I have been on it for awhile, I can tolerate both phen and coffee.

    My Dr. told me today that she was fine with me drinking a cup of coffee in the morning since it's my regular routine, but only one cup she said, no more. I dont have any pulse or high BP problems though.

    The caffiene in coffee does raise heart rate and blood pressure which I guess we don't need when we are taking Phentermine. However, I do find if I drink a small (6 oz) cup of coffee in the morning and no additional caffiene in any way the rest of the day, I do ok. Check with your doctor.
