I took Phentermine for one week and lost 9 pounds. But I was soo scared ,I stopped taking it. Do any of you have any thoughts on the safety factor? I know it doesnt contain ephedra but it still is a stimulant right? What does work ? I have every video from sweatin to the oldies to Denise Austin, plus my 200.00 treadmill (good towel rack)in the livingroom.I feel I will only be able to stay on a diet if I see quick results at first, even 5 pounds to start.Any ideas? thanks
Once I was within a "healthy" weight range, my doctor told me not to take it any longer... he said it can be more dangerous if you are below the "obese" range. I never really had any trouble with it, although I was not very healthy since it made my hunger non existent. Your doctor will continue to monitor your BP and HR, and as long as those are healthy and not increasing, you should be okay... just stay under his/her care, that is the important thing... good luck!
