I went to the doctor because I was at the end of my rope. I felt like I was in prison. I haven't been able to lose weight since the birth of my child 8 yrs. ago.

I have been taking it for 2.5 months now and I have recently began to experience pounding heart, shortness of breath, and I have totally loss my interest in sex. I am going to tell my doc this week because although I have lost 17 lbs, I dont know if the marriage issues are worth it. Maybe he will perscribe me something else.

I have taken phentermine now for 5 weeks and I have lost 25 pounds. I wasn't severely overweight but I needed to lose my baby weight. It makes me generally happy, my energy levels have risen and it makes excercise much more enjoyable. The only side effect that I really experience is cotton mouth.
