I’m day three of this combo and haven’t slept the past two nights. My mind will not shut off. I feel exhausted laying in bed but I toss and turn all night. Is it the side effects? Will they eventually work themselves out. If so how long did it take? Was there anything you took at night to help you sleep against the medication? I’m going on less sleep with this than my new born
The Phentermine is a stimulant, very much like amphetamines so you will not sleep if you don't take it early in the morning. The recommendation I was given was first thing when I wake up or two hours after breakfast. I take it first thing in the morning and still feel a little restless at night. I've had anxiety for 10+ years and take a very low dose of Klonopin (1mg) so I just moved that dose to before bedtime and I sleep just fine now. Good luck! I've had great success with Phentermine as a tool along with calorie restriction I've lost 32 pounds since 4/24/18. I had been stuck at the same weight for over a year after losing 70 pounds, nothing was working but this did the trick. I'm 22 pounds from my goal and finally being a healthy weight again.
