Began Phentermine 37.5mg 3/09 - after 2 wks began experiencing weakness in legs. Now 3rd mo. on meds, been exp. daily debilitating pain, legs, hips, feet, burning, weakness, aching, twitching muscles. Is it possible Phentermine could be causing these symptoms? Anyone ever experience this kind of side effect?
Certainly phentermine can cause an assortment of side effects. The following link explains ALL KINDS of side effects. It addresses things for the consumer as well as the professional. Check out this link. It's from drugs.com. Hope it helps.
I dont know if this drug is related, but I too have suffered pains in the feet, twitchy restless legs. I have noticed it when I Take Citalopram , not so bad when I half the dose, but gets worse as the dose goes up.
I thought I just had tired aching legs , but now you have mentioned this side effect I do think it is linked to the drugs.
I began taking Phentermine 37.5mg on 12/04/09 - after 7-8 days I noticed that my ankles and feet hurt - nothing bad just a slight pain once in a while.
I have not been back to the doctor for a recheck yet. But did contact them about pains. But med is curbing my weight. Energy levels up! I can deal with slight side effects.
I took phentermine for 3 month.. the weight fell off but I had severe twitches of the feet and 6 mos later still have them. My feet hurt so bad. I would never risk it again. Plus soon after coming off the appetite suppressant, I gained the weight back. Now I have the weight and twitchy achy burning feet. :-(
I just started taking phentermine and within three days I have experienced a great deal of muscle aches in my lower back but mostly in my legs, restless leg at night... I went off of the med for 3 days pain pretty much went away... started taking it again and the after 24 the pain is back, I am pretty sure the med has caused the restless legs. Trying to decide whether or not to cont. on the medication... I haven't been back to my DR. yet to discuss with him... open for suggestions.
I am now experiencing severe leg pain. I have been on phenteramine for about 2 months...
I have bad mood swings... a short temper...
My leg pain is worsening and im having trouble walking. This is a very debating problem for me because im 80 lbs overweight and have been losing 5 lbs a week.
The controversy is... do i just continue the medicine and bear the excruciating pain.
