Hey everyone! I have been here before... I started Phentermine 37.5 mg 1/27/07 at 174 lbs with a goal weight of 135 by 3/23/07 (my 31st b-day) I made that goal and continued to lose weight even after I stopped taking the pills. I took myself off slowly. I would take one pill every other day for 2 weeks, then an 1/2 a pill every other day. For another 2 weeks. This went on for the whole month of April I kept a few "just in case" lol. By August 2007 I was at 127 exercising and eating right helped. September found out I was pregnant!! with our 3rd. I was sure going to miss those size 4's LOL but so worth it!
Now I'm back for round two! I am currently 160 and would like to be down to 130 with no date set in mind just going with the flow. I started today with symptoms right away. Cleaning like crazy while sweating heavily!!! Talking very fast, not hungry, and the worst one that I hated the first time around too - licking the inside of my mouth, constantly moving my jaw, wiggling my tongue, feeling my teeth with my tongue, and licking my lips. So badly that a 11 year old boy at the farmers market pointed it out to me!!!
Does anyone have similar side effects and how long (if gone) did they last while on phentermine?
I look forward to helping each other through this and then some!
I have tried... brushing more often, scraping tongue, gum, candy, drinking more fluids. Anyone have any any other suggestions? PLEASE!!!!
