I took phentermine for almost 2 months. I just got out of the hospital this past weekend after being admitted for binocular diplopia, right sided facial droop and dizziness. They thought I was having a stroke or that I had MS. I have no prior health issues and 20/20 vision. I'm 34 years old and have follow up with a neurologist because I still am experiencing the same symptoms and they believe I may have Myasthenia Gravis. Phentermine can do more than raise blood pressure or cause tachycardia. Read about women getting MS diagnoses after taking it. I believe it can cause neurological damage and unfortunately I'm living proof. Please beware. Read less

I told my docotor I needed help losing weight and he prescribed Phentermine 37.5 once a day. I started in 1/1/17 but I still get hungry, and my stomach growls. I have noticed my energy up. Once I take the pill in the morning I don't get sleepy like I used to. I still have cravings but I try to fight it. Has anyone else had this experience? I thought this pill was suppose to suppress my hunger. Help! Read less

Generic phentermine (capsules) - 15mg - No energy boost

I've been on the 15mg for 2 weeks and can't say I notice the energy boost people talk about. I am eating better and drinking 100oz of water a day but just 2lbs lost in total. My doctor doesn't want me to increase the dosage because of high blood pressure but maybe if nothing changes she will up it to 30mg. No side effects at all so this is a good sign I guess. Read less

I'm taking the blue and white capsules phentermine 37.5. They worked well as the start and I lost nearly 7lbs, but after the first two weeks I only lost 0.5lbs in the last week. My doctor said it's normal and I will start to lose again but I am doing everything right so I don't know why it's so slow. Really need this to work! Read less

Generic phentermine (capsules) - Worked but not great

I was on the 30mg capsules for 3 months and lost about 35lbs, going from 270 to 235 so I still need to lose some. I expected to lose more, maybe not all of it but 50lbs at least. I started walking and doing some lifting, cut my portions in half, I didn't feel hungry at first but then the hunger came back but I tried hard to keep with the plan. My doctor says I can try them again in a couple months so I'd like to go for it. Since I came off I feel hungry like I did before and less energy, so I guess it was working but I'm not feeling very motivated to carry on now Read less

I took phentermine before and the weight came off easy even though I didn't exercise, but then I gradually started putting it on again as soon as I came off. This time I'm doing it right - the smart way. Exercise, which is something I now love, especially zumba and I even started running too - never thought I'd be the one on the treadmill at the gym never ever. I'm losing 1-2lbs a week and I lost body fat too, all of my old clothes are huge on me, and I feel great. I have about 10lbs left to go but I am in no hurry. I eat sensible, still have treats, still eat carbs - they are essential, low carb makes you weak, miserable and forgetful, I know because I did it. I still weigh my food and plan ahead. I get dry mouth at the start, some headaches, insomnia a lot - phentermine isn't a solution, it's an aid but if you use it right it can help so much. Read less
