I took Phentermine from 1/2015 til just this last month. My dr started me on the low dose, 15mg I th

ink and was on that til Nov 2015 and then changed to the 30mg. I believe 37.5 is the "normal dosage". I did not have any side effects, it worked great, I was able to lose 60lbs before WLS. I just had surgery 2 days ago.

I didn't have any of the side effects. Not jittery or heart fluttering, just the benefits of the appetite suppressant. You need to eat a healthy diet for it to work, it's not a magical pill.

Oh man I loved phentermine!!!! I had so much energy I could clean, clean for days... Shoot I would have cleaned the neighbors houses if they didn't think I was so bat shit crazy with my excessive chatter. That was one of the problems I had with it- I could not shut up. I'm a pretty happy person anyway but phentermine turned me into a full on Disney character- my family was not at all happy with this. I also couldn't sleep and that started getting old.

The worst part is your body does get used to it and when it does, the party is over. Your appetite resumes and for me, it did with a vengeance. Ate that little Disney character right into something evil. Again, my family was not happy. :(

I had weight loss surgery for a permanent solution to eating issues and I feel great. My house isn't as clean but my family is VERY happy. La la la!

Good luck!!!! :)

I lost 140 pounds with my surgery and then became severely anemic needing hospitalization. During this time I was not able to exercise and was too lethargic to really care about much, so I regained about 20 pounds. I went to see my weight management clinic physician and she prescribed me phentermine to "kick start" my weight loss. I've only been on it a month and I started with the very lowest dosage (15mg). I haven't had any negative side effects at all and have lost 7 pounds. I actually have my monthly check in with her and will likely increase dosage to 30mg since I've tolerated the lower dosage well.
