    I went to a bariatric clinic after yo-yo dieting and fluctuating weight as a result. The doctor started me off on Phenteramine, but eventually got off of that as it had a variety of adverse side-effects (ultimately progressing to severe headaches which is why I was taken off of it).

I've also been eating a lot more ... Show Full Comment

    I took Tenuate since the age of 21. My Dr. prescribed 100 mg. a day and since the onset I had never felt nervous and my blood pressure was always normal, if not below. There were no side effects for me, ever. In fact, what it did for me was help me to lose weight and by staying on it, I was able to maintain the weight I wanted to be. The additional benefit was I was able to stay focused with m ... Show Full Comment

    I am a 39 year old female. I started taking this medication and I must say at first I thought maybe it takes a few days to get into your system. I was so wrong, I was still hungry. So I will be going to my doctor and try to see if I can get another appetite suppressant pill
