... but i cant let this go on. is there a way to counteract the acne issue??
Acne is not a reported side effect of Phentermine so it is unlikely to be the cause... just a coincidence.
Is the first time you have bad acne? Talk with your pharmacist or doctor. There are many OTC or prescription medicines you can try for acne.

Are you taking any multi vitamins or b complex vitamins? Sometimes the reduced calorie diet that goes along with phentermine can cause vitamin deficiencies that create weird symptoms. If not, I would try adding in at least a multi - I even saw hair, skin, and nails vitamins while I was shopping for mine last week. Good luck!
I too am a Phentermine user and this medication makes me break out A LOT too. I noticed another person said it was just a "coincidence" NO IT'S NOT, this is a true side effect. I am sorry I don't have an answer for this problem but I did want to let you know that you are not alone. I do have sensitive skin which I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I use clearasil but that's about it. I still get the break outs but at least the clearasil drys them out. I also would like to know if there is something else I could take to conteract this medication because of the break outs :-/
I too am suffering with the worse acne I've ever had in my life after taking Phentermine. I stopped for three months and it still took weeks to totally clear. I'm guessing it needed time to get outta my system. Then started back and... BAM!!! They are all over again. And they are painful. So, yeah it's a side effect.
In my experience, the acne was caused by toxins building up in my gut. Then came the constipation. 6 years later, I'm still suffering chronic constipation and deep cystic acne. More water. Exercise. Don't let your core muscles get lazy. I'm beginning to see the symptoms go away.
