Phentermine & Effexor XR
Anyone here take Effexor & Phen at the same time?
I was prescribed effexor a couple of weeks ago, and I havent taken my phen everyday, but I have done it often. I told the nurse that I was taking phen, and it is in my chart.
Monday night I started having some breathing issues. I can breath fine for a while, but then all of a sudden it is like I feel suffocated, and have to take a DEEEEEP breath to feel better, but I cant always take a deep enough breath. I got concerned and started looking on the net for symptoms and side effects, and found this on the Effexor Website:
"EFFEXOR XR is not recommended for weight loss alone or in combination with phentermine or other products."
Now I am really freaked out.
