I was wondering if you can drink alcohol while on Phen? Has anyone tried and what are the side effects if you do?
I have drank beer on phen and not noticed any major side affects. But it is not recommended to mix uppers with downers.
I actually drink about twice a week (usually on the weekends) I take my phentermine in the mornings. If I'm hanging out later in the evening I will drink a few vodkas shots, or maybe just some wine. I havent had any problem doing this and sometimes it helps to bring me down off of the jittery feeling I sometimes get with phentermine.
I was apprehensive at first about drinking and taking phen. I now have no problems! HAHA! I have drank beer with it and also rum. I take my phen in the am...and I had not did any drinking until the even hours....
yeah I've had a few drinks w/ the phen to and haven't noticed anything really. It does help relax me somedays when I can't sleep cause of the phen. I hope it's not dangerous but I don't feel anything out of the usual when I do.
i was wondering about alcohol and the phentermine as well. my mother is a pharmacist and told me defiantely no alcohol. but i know alot of people who have taken it and had a couple drinks. i am going to be going to vegas soon and would like to have at leat 1 or 2 every now and then. just wanting to make sure no one had any loopy side effects. if not i will give it a try.
My experience with it is that since I have such a decreased appitite (sp?) I am a cheaper drunk than before I drank a whole bunch last weekend, and while it seems that I got drunk when I would normally just buzz, it probably had alot to do with the fact that I hardly ate anything at all that day. So I can now deduct about 1/2 of my drinking budget and add that $$ to my Phen fund...
well dang, i know it's been a few years since anyone posted on this, but i was concerned as well.
i am not a drinker, really. i have only had a few on occasion, but i have only had one experience with phen just this past week... i've been taking phen for a couple months now, but i began getting jittery after only half a bottle of smirnoff ice light... i'm kind of concerned about this. it's not a jittery "buzz" feeling. it's sort of how i feel after i drink one or two red bulls out of boredom and have "spaz" mode.
i took phen in the afternoon though, around 2 or so. i had my drink in the early hours the following morning at around 3.
i would think that the phen would have worn off by then.
does anyone have any sort of advice?
The reason I joined this site is to see what everyones experience with the Phen and Liquor. I do drink a lot, I must say, but I dont eat much, obviously. I've been on it now for several months and I am stuck at this one weight. Besides that, I have experiences when I drink, I finally am in touch with my body....and the liquor tends to counteract with the Phen. I generally get really hot. I also have issues with feeling "dumb" if you will like I can't complete a sentance or conversation. Anyone else??
I just started Phen four days ago. I stopped drinking a week ago because I was a heavy drinker and I know that's one of the main reasons for my weight gain. We are going on a cruise in May so that's why I looked this up. I'm hoping that the calories I'm saving, by not drinking, and the Phen will kick start my weight loss. I hope I didn't stop drinking for nothing. Haha!
The only difference I have noticed when I take Phen and drink alcohol is I get really emotional and edgy and usually I'm not like that when I drink. I've gone off on my hubby a few times now.
If I know I am going to drink more that a beer or 2, I don't take my pill that day. I've not had any issues..
On Phen for 4 days. First night I had about 5 beers and didn't notice anything. 3rd night I had a glass of wine, felt the same. Didn't drink during day 2 or day 4 (today). I don't think it "alters" you. Will update next time I get hammered.
