I started phen 30 mg this morning at 7 am. Tonight I took my BP and pulse at the drugstore. BP high for me (129/80) but what really upset me was my pulse of 109. I took it 3 times and same pulse rate! I just had my hubby take it the old fashioned way and it was 96. He said he also hears it periodically palping. When I tried the phen mid September for 5 days this is why I quit! The only other time I got palps was if I drank WAY too much coffee. I also feel "reved" up at times.....even tonight.
Anyway, do you think I should ask to move down to the 15 mg tablet or just give up on the whole darn thing? I dont want to screw up my heart, but isn't this sort of common for all on a stimulant like this? Who can relate?
p.s. does the fact that my heart is palping indicate that I already have a weaker heart? It seems like some of you have NO heart/pulse/anxiety like symptoms.
