What were your experiences? I was just recently prescribed it by my doctor who is aware of my disorder and I was wondering how they would react in conjunction with each other.
Hello lkaika. I can't answer your question with a direct answer. I researched your question and using several of my sources have not come across of anyone, or even in clinical studies being given this drug off label for GAD. If I do find out anything, I'll post it below as a comment. I hope that the Phendiametrazine does help your anxiety levels. Regards, pledge
Phendimetrazine is used to decrease appetite and increases heart rate and blood pressure. Might not be the best medication to take if you are prone to anxiety, it really depends on whether the weight problem is more serious than the anxiety. Do be aware that this medication is habit forming and you will have to taper off when you decide to discontinue.
I can't tell you based on any medical study if it gives you anxiety of not. HOWEVER, I was on it for about eight months and while On it I came down with Panic Anxiety Disorder. Never had it before taking those pills. That is only my personal experience. They have been around a long time, and I trust my Dr, so I can't really blame them if nobody else has reports problems with them.
