Hi, I'm new here....
I've been on Phentermine since March 24th and have lost 18 lbs. I'm quite happy with that but I'm not so sure that the Phentermine is helping. I'm hungry all the time! I never get the feeling that I don't want to eat. I don't get the jolt of energy either. Actually, I don't feel like I've taken anything. I'm going to the Bariatrics Center so I know I'm getting the real meds. I'm also getting a vitamin B-12 & B-6 shot every day.
They first started me on 30mg (yellow capsule). It did nothing for me. Then they told me to take 2 a day. One in the morning & one late afternoon. Still nothing. In the meantime, I'm starving because I'm only on 1200 calories. Then they switched me from the yellow capsule to Adipex which is Phentermine in pill form 37.5mg. They told me to take 1/2 in the morning & 1/2 in the afternoon. Still nothing's happening. Then They told me to take 1/2 pill 3 times a day. That was a little better but I'm still hungry. Now, I'm taking 1/2 in the morning & a whole pill around 4:00 in the afternoon. I'm still hungry! I'm afraid that I'm going to go on a binge & gain back what I've lost. I just ate a handful of gummy bears...help!
Another thing...I'm freezing all the time! The only way I can get warm is to take a hot shower or go for a ride in the car & turn the heat up full blast. Is this normal or should I be worried? I asked the nurse today if it could be the Phentermine & she said she didn't think so but it could be. Anypne have a similar experience?
