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.
