Side effects are dry mouth, restlessness, anxiety, all in all not to bad considering the weight loss and increased energy - but watch for mood swings

I just started taking Phentermine yesterday and I have been notified of the possible side effects and am watchful. The funny thing is I am just the opposite...I am tired and no energy. Does it take a while to build in your system. I felt more energetic before I started taking it. Diana

u have to take it on an empty stomach that is key. If you are hyper naturally it may make you tired. I really like it. I no longer crave foods. That in itself has allowed me to make healthier choices such as fruits and veggies when I am hungry. I no longer think of food as a way to fill a mood. I look at food as my body needs it.

Yes I too got a sore throat. I also took it on an empty stomache and still was so fatigued I couldn't function. 3 days after quitting it I feel great again. It definitely took away my appetite. I didn't care if I ate at all. I have never considered myself hyper with the extra weight I almost saw myself as the perfect stereotype - fat adn lazy. But as I started to lose weight through food control and exercise - water walking which I recommend to EVERYONE - I started to gain energy and was feeling great until I started taking phentermine. I just wanted to make sure others were aware of this side effect as I was told it would suppress my appetite and give me more energy. Nope. Great for all of you who can use it. PLEASE try water walking if you get the chance. A friend of mine who goes every day with me is 6'7 and around 500# and was not even able to walk a block was able to start out walking 1 mile in the water. It works!!

I have been using phentermine for about a month. The only side effect that I seem to have is regularly waking up about 2 hours after I go to sleep, then finding it difficult to get back to sleep...and waking up again 2 or three more times. I have been taking it (30 mg)on empty stomach around noon each day, but I plan to take it before breakfast to see if it helps the sleep thing. With moderate excercise, reducing quantities of food, increasing water intake, I have lost 20lbs in a month. Start weight was 256lbs 5'9' 59 yo male.
I'd say it definitely helps me take focus away from food. Good luck.

Axcion is a pretty strong pill, it does suppress your appetite, but becareful, cause it makes you fell real wired,the only way to deal with it is working it off so that you wont have a real bad aftercrash.

I started taking phenermine a week ago and so did my brother, he lost 10 lbs and is not hungry and has more energy. Me I am still always hungry, no extra energy and have not lost any weight. How long does it take to start working? I have been waking up at least a dozen times at night even though I take it early in the morning, that is the only effect I have.

I order Lida diet pills and they ship it from china, on the web site it said that it conteines some aciant chineese herb that makes u loose weight, but now from reading about phentermine and all of it's side effect i fugured out that this is what it is. I have same side effects, always dry mouth,i have to drink every 2 sec, first day i didn't sleep the whole night, i've been on it for week and a half and lost 6,5 pounds. I don't feel hungry i don't look at food as it is food, it's more like an obeject to me . I have problems sleeping, i have to make myself, time goes by so fast i it seems like in one day i lived the whole week. Thanks got at least i know what it is now, because my husband kept telling me that it's chrystal meth, (chineese invented it) and one othe side effect brobably most common here, LONg NIGHT ON THE INTERNET SEARCHING FOR THIS DRUGS FACTS!!

Phenteramine is a synthetic amphetamine and should be removed from the market. I am a physician in practice for over 20 years and have never ever written for phenteramine. Call your phy and request another drug

My husband has been on phentermine 3x in the last 2 yrs. This drug has made him act crazy and he is terribly moody. I cannot believe that our Doctor has prescribed this for him. He loses 50 lbs. and then gains it all back after he quits the phentermine. We are almost in divorce court because of his moods and craziness that this drug has caused. I also took it once & noticed how moody I got. I advise no-one to take this drug! You need to take care of your emotional eating habits by going to a counselor so you can keep the weight off after you lose it with diet & exercise. This pill has done nothing but cause grief in our marriage after 33 yrs. I plan on calling our doctor & ask why he keeps putting my husband on this mind altering drug!

I have recently started taking phen. again. I am also experiencing sores on my tongue and a swollen tongue, expecially hurts when I eat fruits or brush my teeth. I have looked at other boards, and sorry to see that this happens to lots of other people, even the toothpaste part. Seems like most people with these symptoms are experiencing a very dry mouth, not enough water.

Louise Says:

Carla, is your tongue still swollen? I haven't read all the side effects of phen but it sounds like you're having a reaction to it. Have you ever had this happen w/ this med? is there someone there w/you? and for the fruit, I would not eat the more acidic ones as they are obviously not being very nice to your dehydrated & swollen tongue. Right Now, try & drink large glass of water & continue drinking lots everyday. please let us know ure alright...swollen tongues are scary!

I have been on Phen off and on for many years. I do get a swollen tongue as well, but not every time. I didn't realize that it could be due to dehydration. I'm going off of it for the weekend and start back up on Monday. We will see what happens with me drinking lots of water all weekend.
