Justin G (2 years ago):

I am 28 years old I have been on phentermine for the last month and and 2 or 3 weeks. In the last month i started noticing blood in my stool but it was very painful so i wrote it off as Hemerroids and or a fisher. This pain and blood has now been going on for over a month. The pain is begining to subside as i think the hemerroid and or fisher is healing. But the blood has gotten worse. I still have a week or 2 left of my perscription. I am Just going to stop taking it and hope that the bleeding stops. I am extremely scared cause i have never had this much blood before. I only say that because i have had hemerroids or a fisher before but they never lasted this long either. I am extremely worried. And i cannot afford to go to the dr right now.

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • started taking this drug in Dec 2011 for weight loss for 24 days and during that time developed pulsatile tinnitus which has continued 24/7 for the last 27 months - have seen ENTs, neurologists, gp, chiropractor, acupuncturist to try to cure the condition. I've had MRIs and MRAs of the head and brain, carotid artery as well as a lumbar puncture to see if it might be a build up on spinal fluid - all tests came back with good results. Is phentermine hydrochloride the cause of my pulsatile tinnitus? is there a medication that can reverse the symtoms?

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • after taking phentermine hydrochloride 37.5 mg tablets for less than one month, pulsatile tinnitus started and has continued for 26 months - would this drug have caused this as I have done every test including a lumbar puncture and have seen ENTs, dentists and neurologists. I am desperate to find if this drug started the pulsatile tinnitus and if there is any drug to reverse it?
