Anyone Weight Gain After Stopping Phentermine

A friend was put on Phentermine before her wedding and did drop some weight. About 20lb. or so. Then the Dr. took her off of it due to the fact that she was trying to get pregnant. Since stopping the medication she has gained all her weight & then some back...rapidly. Moderate activity level and eating well.
Has anyone else experienced this after stopping this med?
All other health issues seem to be in check (no thyroid trouble, etc...)
Thanks for your help.

Re: Anyone Weight Gain After Stopping Phentermine

coco,

In my opinion, it's very predictable because diet pills don't teach anything: They don't teach self-control and they don't teach how to make good food choices. So when you stop taking them you're no better off; you're right back where you started. Why would anyone expect any other result?
