I took phentermine over six years ago and it worked wonderfully for me.
In the past year and half, I've gained quite a bit of weight. We moved from Hawaii to Indiana and we just don't get the same exercise as we use to. Boy do I hope we can get back to Hawaii when it's time to leave Indiana!
I recently found a weight doctor who prescribed me phentermine again.
I ended up having to quit it due to heart palpitations. They were very scary and even lasted over 7 days after I quit the phentermine. I'm so surprised at my reaction to the med, because when I took them before, I had no problems at all.
I just recently went back to the weight doctor and he put down in my records that I have an "allergy" to the phentermine now and I can never ever take them again.
He ended up telling me to try another med called Tenuate. I'm going to give it a try and really, really hope it helps.
