    I was wondering if it was just me too! I noticed that I itch on my legs and arms, feel like something is crawling on me. I will take a shower which usually fixes the problem, however it usually comes back. I am so happy to know that I am not the only one who has the itching problem. I was begining to think that i was going crazy. Figured I would lay off of the Phen for a couple of days to see what happens. Also my sleep pattern is also off track, I am definetly not getting my proper sleep!

    It probably could make you more sensitive to the sun.It hasn't affected me and I have been going tanning at least 4 times a week since April.

    Some of us have noticed an increased sensitivity to sun, I personally think it should be added as a possible side effect, as some fair skinned people could suffer a painful burn they could avoid otherwise. I am usually tan also, but I have gotten tan faster and burnt a little bit already this summer! Usually I am not this tan until late July! I haven't spent too much time outside, but enough!

    I was wondering the same thing!! I always tube the Salt River in the summer and NEVER burn and I went yesterday and I'm so burned I can not wear a bra or be outside! I live in AZ so it's hard to stay out of the sun but I've never had this before. I was born and raised here and Wow!

    I think it makes me more sensitive to sun...but my doc pretty much acted like I was crazy. I hardly ever burn...and burned pretty bad at the beginning of may.

    Just my experience...

    A couple of years ago on phen I broke out in hives... they itched so bad and I kept taking benadryl and putting different things to reduce the itching on my skin. I was clueless as to why I kept getting hives day after day. Then I found out it could be a side effect of phen and stopped taking it for awhile. The hives went away. A few months later I tried phen again and haven't experienced the hives again... thank goodness!

    Maybe try to skip the phen a day or so and see if they go away. If so, wait until they're completely gone before starting it up again. Just an idea.

    Good luck!

    Skin rash and itching is a side effect,I didnt see sun sensitivity on the list,guess it's possible.
