  • Weight migain with phentermine
    I took Phentermine in 1990. At the time I only had about 20 pounds to lose. I actually lost 30. When I stopped taking it, it was like someone opened a "fat door". The weight started coming back even though I did everything exactly the same as when I was on the drug. In six months I had gained 120 pounds. To this day, I cannot get it off no matter what I do. I have been called a liar by several doctors, and have tried every diet known to man. In addition I spend three years with a personal trainer. Nothing has worked.
  • Taking phentermine likely caused our baby to have anencephaly.
    I used Phentermine for a few months prior to my wedding in December 2013. I ceased taking the phentermine in December 2013 after my honeymoon. In January 2014 my husband and I conceived a baby boy. This was our first child together and we and our families and friends were elated with excitement. At 9 months I had my first ultrasound where you can clearly see our baby's skull was not closed. The on/gyne who took the ultrasound did not diagnose the anencephaly or alert us, instead he referred us to the maternal fetal department at our local hospital. A month later I had another ultrasound performed at the maternal fetal department and was immediately informed and shown that our baby has anencephaly and an abortion was required. The only medication I took prior to pregnancy was phentermine prescribed by my primary care provider. I believe the phentermine is chemically composed similar to Adderral and should have the same warnings. I also believe phentermine causes a mother to be anemic and unable to provide a baby en utero the necessary nutrition for healthy growth. Had I been informed of the risk, I would never have taken this medication. Our baby died at 14 weeks after we were forced through the anguish and torturous of a late term abortion which is against our beliefs. I am now pregnant again, this time with a healthy baby.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia after use of phentermine (2 responses)
    I am insulin resistant, unable to lose weight w/diet and exercise. Started us of Phentermine for about 6 days and had increasing symptoms of abscess tooth. Went to dentist, was not a tooth, he thought it was a sinus infection. Antibiotics did not work. My PCP gave me more antibiotics. Did not work. Went to ENT- scoped sinus. It was not my sinuses. Told to take different antibiotics if pain came back. IT DID! Took those, went back to dr- Worse still. Dx with TMJ, given muscle relaxers. That did not work. Pain continued intense. Unable to chew, wear glasses, move my hair, sleep on that side of head. Dx w/Trigeminal Neuralgia. This started with the Phentermine. I want to know if anyone else has suffered this?!
  • Effexor xr 150 mg and phentermine 37.5 mg
    phentermine has caused significant weight loss. Effexor XR manages my GAD and depression but causes random physiological anxiety attacks, drastic increase in sweating, vivid and nightly nightmares
  • Dilantin and interactions
    I've taken Dilantin for over 40 years..seizure free for over 30 years..became hypothyroid 10 years ago..B12 deficient approximately 3 years ago and have had a benign arrhythmia for over 30 years. I take magnesium because it seems to hep the arrhythmia and vitamin d because mine is low normal.

  • Nikki on Feb, 5, 2015:

    I am a 36 yr old female. 5'8 109lbs. I've battled anorexia since age 9. Up until I was on gabapentin I had no former heart problems. I was recently put on baclofen 5mg effexor 37.5 abilify 2.5 mg and was already taking gabapentin 300 3× daily. I had been diagnosed with thoracic cervical stenosis at c5 needing decompression surgery. The week before I had been scheduled for a breast biopsy which they cancelled because while taking the gabapentin alone I started having chest pains and the occasional fluttering in my chest. After taking my final dose the evening they started me on the three new meds I started feeling sick to my stomach, my internal temp rose,I was shaking and sweating. My heart started racing by 10:30pm. When I would try to sit up the headache I had was so severe the only relief came from laying my head down. By 2am I started having vision problems. Since that night I have palpitations daily and my bp has dropped from where it has sat for 13 yrs at 120/80 to 90/53. Hardly ever above 106/67. Sometimes when I have a sudden drop my heart will raise to 95-105 at rest. I am now currently on life watch event monitor as of last week. I stopped taking the abilify and the effexor and have been switched to zanaflex 10mg 3× daily and continuing with the gabapentin 300 3× daily but my condition seems to be worsening. Is it possible these medications are making my heart condition worse? And if so how do I approach my drs.(because I have 3 prescribing drs) to listen to my concerns. Im starting to become concerned if I stay on these meds what may happen. Thank you for your time and any input you may have
