Help.. side effects from Sibutramine still there, Im miserable :(

Hi there..

Here is my story

At around January 2010, a friend introduced me to this slimming pill. She tried to convince to take it but I didnt accept. After a while of convincing me, she eventually did convince me and it helped my decision knowing that not only she was taking it but also her husband,. mother and 2 sisters, so I said what the heck, let me try it.

I was supposed to take 1 pill a day, and thats what I did, I started taking a pill a day. After around 4 days, I started to feel weird things, like dry mouth, burning sensation in my mouth, something stuck in my throat, and I was feeling nauseous, like I wanted to vomit - I also had insomnia and rapid heart palpitations. I then told my friend what was happening and she said it was normal and that later it would feel stable and will fade away. So I ignored those symptoms and went ahead and continued. By the end of the second week, I was done, I was feeling miserable, thats when I looked in the mirror and my tongue was different. It was cracked a LOT!! < edited >
Yes, my tongue was weird looking, it was also sore and it looked swollen, I also was breathing fire, I felt like a dragon! everything was burning my tongue, like if I ate something sour my tongue would hurt! Colgate even burns it! So to conclude, my symptoms by the end of the 2 weeks I took in the pills were:

- Burning tongue
- Sore/ tingling tongue
- Cracked/fissured tongue
- hoarse voice
- burning breath
- dry lips
- white coated tongue
- Dry mouth - absolutely NO SALIVA!

I stopped the pills by the end of week number 2, and the symptoms were still there!!!!!!!! So I was like that for about a month.. they were not as bad as when I was taking it, but I felt not normal, not like before taking them. So out of curiosity, I had to take a pill to see if my symptoms were going to get worse. So I took 1 one morning, and BAM! I was again miserable!!!! my mouth went out of control!!

After few months I decided to check with a doctor, so I went to see a Gastroenterologists and he said I had to do endoscopy. So I did so and he said that everything was normal but maybe I had GERD. I said maybe? he said that tube connected from esophagus to stomach wasnt tight that it was a bit loose, I said what does that mean, if it was bad, he said no, that the measurement was normal, but seemed I had acid more than normal. I told him about the pills, he said that I should forget that that pills dont do that. So he put me on Nexium, and I went to Lebanon July 2010. I went to see an ENT in Beirut and he did an awake endoscopy, inserting in my mouth a metal thing, he said that nothing is wrong, that it can be solved, I should just have Pariet for 6 months and also told me to inhale Nasonex. I did that and I am still miserable. My tongue is still there..... BAD!!

Anyway, that's when I started researching like a maniac. All I was getting was dry mouth is a symptom of Cancer, of AIDS. I was like ***! Then I read about people confusing GERD with low acidity in stomach? that having low acidity may lead to the same symptoms of having high acidity? I also read that one of the symptoms of having low acidity is having cracked weak nails, and my toenails are very bad, they are chopped and weak, and yellowish!!

I am also having issues a lot with swollen tonsils, I get a lot of tonsil stones (disgusting) and tonsillitis, my tonsils develop a lot of white dots is unbelievable. I am always sick! I am now taking Luivac to improve my immunity system, and BION3 which are probiotics to help out with gut flora. I took Diflucan few times as well..

So its been around a year and half and I am miserable.

Now to the question - why has it been long to get to normal? what can I do to be the way I were? Its ruining my life.

Re: Help.. side effects from Sibutramine still there, Im miserable :(

sibutramine is poison... last time i checked it was forbidden in many countries because it caused heart problems... i'm not judging though, i took it too, but had other side effects (depression)...

i'm sorry to hear you have such side effects...

now not to be a jerk, but do you have a healthy diet? don't forget to eat vegetables, fruits or take vitamins... if you are on a crash diet/anorexic and taking sibutramine, you are basically killing yourself
