    My bf has started taking it, as have a few of my friends, to jump start a diet. Anyone ever taken it before? Thoughts?

    # trouble sleeping
    # your heart seems to beat faster and harder
    # your blood pressure may be raised
    # irregular heart beats
    # chest pain
    # feeling restless
    # feelings of extreme happiness followed by depression and tiredness
    # nervousness
    # tremor (shaking)

    Phentermine will causes weight loss by suppressing appetite. The amount of weight loss varies widely between users. Average weight loss ranges from 2 to 13 lbs. Phentermine needs to be combined with diet and exercise to maximize weight loss.

    Since Phentermine is an amphetamine derivative, it has similar side effects. Heyden pointed out a few of the side effects. Like all amphetamines, Phentermine can be habit forming and should not be used for more than a few weeks.

    Phentermine should only be taken under the supervision of a physician.
