I don't use it as a weight loss..it is like speed to me. So I only take it if I have to stay up all night doing homework.

Look up Phentermine and psychosis. It made my mother crazy and gave her eye disease. I am NOT joking. Please Google it and stay away from that stuff.

It's not always bad, IF you are taking it right and your DR has checked your EKG, blood work, and medical history to prevent many of the issues associated with it.  Like any drug, there are always side effects and some can be pretty bad, even with all of the tests done and history checked.  You just never know how something is going to affect you until you take it. 

It is the one thing I told them at the weight loss clinic- that I did not even want to try, BUT my body over reacts to cough syrup, so I am pretty sure, it would not like it- at all.

I have been a pharmacy tech for 26 years, every one I have ever dispensed that med to, myself included has always gained back every pound and more after they stopped taking it

My mother was on it for awhile and lost around 40 lbs with it. She gained it back quickly, when she moved and could no longer see the dr that prescribed it.
