Why Do Phentermine Diet Pills Give Me Mood Swings
It is safe:
Under your physician supervision. Like many other drugs Fastin (phentermine) has many side effects: dry mouth, insomnia, irritability, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, just to name a few. The excessive weight has also certain health risks.
Your doctor recommended this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
Hope it helps. ...Read more
Anorectic agents generally known as diet pills are medications which decrease or inhibit appetite and aid in the reduction of food intake, therefore aiding weightmloss. Most currently FDA-approved appetite medications are dispensed by prescription due to potential side effects and contraindications. Diet pills alone are seldom successful in deriving long-term weight reduction. They should only be taken under the direct supervision of a physician specifically trained in their use as a part of a multi-modal treatment program including diet, exercise, ...Read more
Both bad: All over-the-counter diet pills can be dangerous and have not been proven to be very helpful.

No: I would strongly avoid any and all dietary supplements as they will not provide long term weight loss and could possibly even be harmful.

I'm wondering if Fastin (phentermine) (dietary supplement) would be safe for me. I already had my problems with diet pills so I'm a little worried.
Not effective: Dietary fastin contains phenylethylamine, a plant derived chemical that has mild stimulant properties. It is usually not very effective for weight loss.

Diet pills are not the best way to control your weight. Losing weight rapidly is not ideal. I would recommend:
# Go on-line and look up "NuVal" that will help with your eating habits.
# Exercise as readily as you can.
# Possibly see a dietitian for more advice and help.
Don't lose weight in a hurry. ...Read more
Good luck!: I show the generic (phentermine) still as a prescription-only medication. So, whatever is in the over-the-counter version is not likely its true namesake, or potentially in a very reduced strength--either of these may not give you the results you are hoping for, and toxicity risk. Phentermine can show in urine drug screen for 10-14 days per internet resources. ...Read more

? Question: Your question is incomplete but I am assuming you want to know if 5HTP causes weight loss. It, s action is indirect. Your first statement is correct as people develop tolerance to phentermine over time. 5HTP is a tryptophan derivative which is converted to serotonin in the brain. Serotonin works to prevent you from getting hungry. Avoid if on certain medications and consult your doctor before use. ...Read more

Not recommended: Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that has a 99 percent failure rate---long term. Yes it works when you take it but weeks later the weight starts returning. Vicious cycle. Pcos is a pre-diabetic state so a good diabetic diet and exercise is your best choice. Metformin is a medication used for to improve Insulin receptors and can help. Talk to your doc. ...Read more
Yes, but...: ...there is a price--talk to your doctor about risks & side effects! Also, it is important to have realistic expectations when starting a weight loss medicine--e.g. about 5-10% of the starting weight is the average weight loss most patients on these drugs will achieve. Finally, once the drug is stopped, gradual weight gain is statistically likely. ...Read more
As a doctor what's your opinion of the new weight loss drug qsymia (phentermine and topiramate)? Would you/have you used it yet? Results?

The key is maintaining that lifestyle change once med stopped. ...Read more
