The first that I took the medication my head/chest tightened up. I did not exactly feel my heart racing, but I felt a rush. It definitely decreased my appetite.

I did great for the first 2 weeks and then I started waking up vomiting I thought it was a virus. Had to skip several days then started taking every other day. Lost a total of 15lbs on a 30 day supply of the 15mg(which lasted more like a month and a half)because of the sickness.

This is my first day on Phentermine. I have been jittery today and very dry mouth. And I feel very warm and I haven't been moving around today so I don't know if that's because I'm taking the pills or what. I weigh 174 right now so we'll see how I weigh when I'm done with my 30 day supply.

I have taken the 30mg capsule about 45 minutes ago. I'm feeling a little jittery, like a strong cup of coffee. I have been on the computer since taking it. Need to get up and get going. I need to lose about 15 pounds before hip surgery in March.Hope this will help. Will report as time goes on.
