My doctor prescribed me phentermine 37.5 to lose weight since I'm obese. I'm having a hard time starting it because I'm very medication resistance. I'm scared of the side effects. I have OCD and Anxiety and I'm worried it will make it worse. I really want to take this drug because I know I need it. I'm very unhealthy due to my weight. Anyone have any feedback on side effects or tips to avoid them?
Hello Emma32. Phentermine is a drug that is to be taken for the short term. Generally for several weeks and not much longer. Its a drug that although popular, depending who you talk to, some people lose little weight while taking it. Side effects vary but if you find them to be unpleasant, meaning harsh, you've the option to stop taking it. Not everyone experiences side effects. It varies from one individual to another.
