I just wanted to know because I start on phentramine next wednesday and i dont want to take it and lose the weight but then have to worry about excess skin
Depending on how much weight you have to lose, there may definitely be loose skin, particularly if you have quite a bit of weight to lose. You don't mention how much you are trying to lose. But, because the skin stretches to accommodate our excess weight, it may also lose some of its elasticity, particularly if the weight has been on for a while and also depending on your age. The younger we are, the more elasticity our skin has. So, the phentermine may help you to lose weight, but unfortunately its not a magic pill that also sucks up the extra fat cells and loose skin! I wish!! Now, that would be amazing, wouldn't it?! I don't believe any medication could actually do that, unfortunately. But, good luck, anyway! Its worth the sagging skin because some of it will tighten up when you replace it with those muscles you'll get from exercise!
