I'm new to this site, I was wondering if anyone taking phentermine has problems with their teeth hurting, gums bleeding, and inside of mouth getting sore? I brush and floss regularly.

Yes! I think it's because your mouth gets so dry. My tongue stays sore. I drink and chew gum, but it does not help.

OMG mine too... and I have just completed my first week. Does anyone have any ideas on how to better hydrate your mouth? I'm drinking liquids, water, diet soda, chewing gum, licking my lips to death... help! It's so uncomfortable and my gums are almost blood red.

I've had canker sores inside my mouth develop after 2 weeks. Don't know if it might be related

This is my second round on Phen. The first time, I developed bad sores in my mouth and hurting teeth and gums. After a lot of research on mouth problems, I discovered that a lack of B vitamins causes this--at least for me.
So this go round on Phen I took a Super B complex every morning. It helped but I still had one sore so now I take one in the morning and one at night and I have no more mouth problems!!! (your body excretes the extra B you don't need)
Don't know why but our B vitamin stores are depleted while on Phen.

When I first started taking Phen, my mouth was so sore and it was so dry that my lips would stick to my teeth!! I have found that only drinking water helps. If I try to drink a soda, my mouth is dry immediately. Hope this helps.
