Wow it’s been a while since I’ve been on here! I kind of took a break from “life” for a bit, but I’m back. I wanted to share with you my experience with phentermine. A few weeks ago I blogged about my weight loss trouble, I told you about my prescription but never mentioned the name because I knew its a pretty controversial drug.
The first week of phentermine was amazing! The only word I can use to describe the feeling is euphoria. I had so much energy! I was so happy, seriously nothing could upset me! I was beginning to think this drug was the cure all to every problem I was having. The only side effect I was experiencing was dry mouth, which was OK with me.
It was all wonderful until about half way through week 2. All of a sudden, out of the blue came this massive depression. I’ve never in my life dealt with depression so it took a while for me to figure out what this was. This was a can’t get out of bed, crying all day, hysterical, wanting to just die, kind of depression. I would never wish that kind of feeling on anyone! I stopped the phen immediately. It takes about a month for it all to leave your system so I’m feeling much better but it took a while. The weird thing is, I was working out, eating right, and drinking soooo much water and I didn’t even lose a pound! Most people lose weight their first week on phen. I’m thinking I have some other issues that are preventing weight loss because I was doing everything right with no results. Another reason why I think there are other issues with me is because I could sleep while on phen! If I can sleep while on an amphetamine there is an issue!
I have a new approach to phentermine. I take half a pill every now and then and don’t take it for more than 3 days in a row. I wouldn’t tell anyone not to take it, but I would say use extreme caution and listen to your body carefully.
