    I am on week 5 and I have mitral valve prolapse so I was waiting on a lot of side effects. So far all I have experienced is cotton mouth, constipation and WEIGHT LOSS! Yay!!! I understand your worry though, I am the same way, but at the weight I am at and was at, the benefit far out weighed the risks.

    I have been on it for about three months, but I only take a half of the 37.5 mg tablet, I also average about 5 days a week, I think it is good to take a break.

    My side affects are, having trouble sleeping, constipation, dry mouth, more talkative, slight increase in blood pressure, and a bit more jittery. On the up side I seem to feel a bit uplifted and I definately have more energy, I am excersing off the chart. I lay off the phen if i know I am going to be in a situation where I will feel anxious, for example I just went on a job interview, so I layed off it the day before, so I would be able to sleep and the day of the interview. I am prone to being on the hyper side and can't handle coffee even early in the morning, so I pretty much expected the jitters and take the pill by 6 am. There are some other side effects that sound serious like the thread about the lump in the throat, that is is just plain scary but I have not had to deal with this. Also even though I have the dry mouth I don't have much desire for water, I need to pay attention to that. good luck

    As far as being addictive, it can be. It absolutely can become a psychological crutch. How strong the psychological addiction is depends on the person. Physically addictive is another story. You won't need a room at the Betty Ford center but you will need to sleep...A LOT..and you may feel a bit depressed and generally sluggish. In a couple of weeks you'll be your old self.

    their is a such thing as a delayed withdrawl, but most of the time they are psychological rather than physical. Although, their is something called, "protracted withdrawal syndrome" which is generally the same thing as a delayed withdrawl, google it for more info if you want

    Default Delayed Side Effects

    First, I have to say that Phen was the greatest thing I have ever used to loose weight. I lost 40 lbs. since February 5, 2008. Of course, I was eating the prescribed 1000-1200 calories a day. No bread, sweets or french fries. That ****ed. But it worked. I had no side effects during the three months that I took it. I decided to go off it the beginnnig of May and see what would happen to my weight. You know, just to see if I could do it on my own. So far, so good. But my question is, one month after I went off the Phen I get this nasty burning sensation in my lips and tongue. Never had it before. I had no withdrawl symptoms the whole month of May. Nothing. Is there such a thing as delayed withdrawl. Has anyone ever had this happen? Is my body just trying to readjust itself? But why a month after stopping the pill. I would like the option of using Phen again, since it worked so well. I only used half a 37.5 mg a day and lost all that weight.

    If one person lists that as a side effect, they have to inform the public. Chances are, most of that won't happen to you at all. I have been taking it for about 5 days, and I only have constipation.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
