  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • I haven't taken Phentermine today, but I have experienced heart pain on and off about 3 times I have noticed while at work from 8:00AM - 10:30AM (8/19/14). Is this another side affect or should I be worried? Do I need to take an aspirin? The only symptoms I am experiencing is an occasional heart-roll / heart-gurgle (is the way I can explain it best)and it is a little bit painful, and lazy breathing (like I forget to breathe in deep sometimes). Not experiencing arm pain etc. I have been taking 1/2 pill one day, maybe 1/2 and 1/2 pill next day, maybe not taking anything next day, and trying to slowly wean myself off. (These pills are 30mg). I have lost 30 lbs and weight is 163. I am 5' 6" tall female, age 33.
