    Cruisegirl- Why do you have to go to a cardiologist?
    I have been to one before but I wasnt on Phen at the time.
    Your supposed to tell them all of the medinces that your on.

    I just wanted you to know that I'll keep my fingers crossed and send a prayer up for you that you will get the OK from them.
    Wish you all the best.

    I had a 3d echo done just last week on my heart and oh to my Husband disappointment I am fine and my heart is normal...

    If I think I am going to get blood work done. I dont take the phen for a couple of days, also so my blood pressure wont be to high when they check it.

    Hope this helps.
    Thank you... I'm glad to hear your echo was good!! That is wonderful. I thought about the blood pressure thing... my BP pills aren't really keeping it down the last few days, but I don't think it's in a real danger zone. I figured the Cardiologist would be against it... it makes sense. Thank you for your reply!!

    Mapgirl, thank you for your thoughts... I guess I'll know better in a couple of hours!!! LOL!

Perhaps I'm just worrying for nothing... I'm really hoping for a clean bill of health I guess, and then there should be no reason to stop taking it right? Just trying to get an idea of how Cardiologists might be viewing Phen... anyone?

    Thanks so much!!!!!
