Has anyone tried phentermine?

Has anyone used phentermine, and if so, what were the results? I'm 5 ft 1, and my normal weight used to be 120. Now, I'm at 130, but it fluctuates from 125-130. I gain most of my weight in my hips and thighs. Exercise helps, but I need help with my cravings! I love junk food and sweets. I've tried Hydroxycut and Xenedrine and din't have much luck. Any suggestions? Thanks. Beth Ann <IMG SRC="">

Re: Has anyone tried phentermine?

My BF used it and he did lose a good bit of weight. I tried it and after 5 days my stomach went nuts. About 15 minutes after I ate I had SEVERE stomach pains and went to the bathroom about 10 times. That was the last day I took it. My BF would go as soon as he ate but he didn't get pains like I did. I do think that using a prescription drug for 10 pounds is a little drastic. I have found that if I get a craving and I brush my teeth the craving goes away. I don't want to eat with my minty fresh mouth! <IMG SRC="">

Re: Has anyone tried phentermine?

YES! It worked for me, but it does NOT work for everyone. I took it for one month and lost 10 lbs.

The "dangers" are...for some it elevates blood pressure and increases heart rate. If that happens - you gotta get off IMMEDIATELY.

Also, I noticed that it seemed to "stop" having it's effect on me (i.e. energy, etc.) after several consecutive days, so I had to take a break every 3-4 days and restart on it after a 2 day break. Then it seemed to kick back in for me.

It DOES affect everyone differently though. For me, it gives me a HUGE does of energy (almost a "high") the first day, but doesn't do that for everyone. It is strictly an appetite suppressant.

HTH! <p>[This message has been edited by moderator2 (edited 06-13-2002).]

Re: Has anyone tried phentermine?

Phentermine, for me, worked about 3 days, then I became irritable. Dr. D'Adamo of Eat Right 4 Your Type, says Type O's shouldn't use stimulants, he gave the symptoms, etc. and he was describing me! I use a certain blend of amino acids that cut sugar and bread cravings, and reduce the appetite. I lost 120 lbs. on a lot of amino acid supplements. An acquaintance, also overweight, noticed and wanted to do the same thing. She hated it. No loss. Hungry. I breezed through my regimen, but it isn't for everyone. We are all different.
My friend is a Type A.<p>[This message has been edited by all things (edited 06-25-2002).]
