Hello youngprine94. It might be that your body has built up an immunity to the Phentermine. This drug really works differently grom one person to the other. Its meant to be taken short term, not for long term use. It also carries its share of side effects, that it seems more often than not, the longer a person stays on the drug, the greater the chance of the side effects increasing and lingering. Best wishes along with good health to you,pledge
