How horrible! You might consider a switch to Topomax, similar weight control with migraine meds if your neurologist likes the drug for you. I think this is like so many drugs (Botox for migraines, epilepsy medicine, heart meds...) works like magic for some and hurts others. At least you know quickly and the ill effects wear off after a few days so you can try something else until you find the perfect thing. Only took me 30 years of trying...

Ms. MajorMigraine (3 years ago):

That's interesting that your PCP perscribed it for your migraines. I was perscribed Phentermine for weight loss as my BMI is over 30. I have taken it for approx. five months now, and get migraines MORE frequently (I've had diagnosed migraines for about 20 years now). In fact, the only time I DON'T get a migraine is after I have stopped taking it for three days in a row and I can flush the Phentermine completely from my body...

Lifetime Migraine Lady (3 years ago):

There are several forums I have visited where the posters and bloggers have been trumpeting the positive effects of phentermine on migraine. I have suffered from migraine since the early 1980s (I am in my 30 now). When my PCP tried phentermine for me for short term weight loss I was shocked to notice my migraines went from on average every other day to maybe 5 a month. I stayed on for a year and it was the single best migraine year of my life. My neurologist is considering putting me on this drug to control my migraines. When I looked to see if others were doing the same, the web is full of these references. As with every drug that helps some migraine patients, it hurts some others. If you have migraines, don't back from trying phentermine - could have result like we have and isn't it worth the possibility of a few extra headaches to have a shot at reducing frequency by 1/4?
