My dr prescribed me 37.5 phentermine and 25mg of topiramate, instead of the combo pill. Is anybody else on this or was before it became a combo pill? Today was my first day I didn't feel the phentermine at all I guess I just felt different all day.
Hi, I take that exact combo. At first i felt nothing then major appetite changes. The topamax made me tired so I take the phentermine in the am and topamax later on or around after dinner which is when I get cravings. My doc said that was fine but you may not experience tiredness like I did. I lost 10 lbs though quickly. Its important to drink sooo much fluids. It will help any side effects and get ur hydration flowing. Hope that helps!
I have been taking 15 mg of Phentermine twice a day and 100 mg of Topamax twice a day. It has been a year and my highest weight loss thus far has been 116 lbs. I slacked off at the gym a few days or that number would be much higher. I pretty much eat what I want too. I started with the 37.5 mg of Phentermine and it gave me severe anxiety attacks. But I tell you what, my house has never been so clean!!
I am, Hi luv, I take that and high blood pressure meds. This is my first day and I felt like I'm on an ex pill or something. My blood pressure is up too but I think it's because it was high the day before. But I feel okay my appetite is gone which is good. So I guess it's a good thing. 06/24/15
I have been taking Phentermine 37.5 for 3 months. I went from 265 and weighed in 8/19/16 at 245. My dr now prescribed me Phentermine 37.5 and topiramate aka topamax 50mg two times a day. I also take blood pressure meds. And my pressure has been crazy high (150/110 in July and 141/103 this month)I haven't started taking the combination yet. When I first started taking Phentermine for a about a week I felt like I was on Adderall or something. I was constantly moving, cleaning or getting EVERYTHING I needed to do DONE. I hope it doesn't make me sick.
I took the combo FDA approved med. Qsymia for one year I had no side effects and with walking a about 3 miles a day I lost 65 pounds. I started on lowest dose, then increased to loose my last 20 pounds but I didn't notice any difference, I had no side effects! Then my inurance decided not to cover it so I went from $10 a month to $156 with a coupon discount rom the manufacturer so after about 6 more months I decide to go off of it because of cost, now I'm hearing you can take phenrramine and topramax seperately for around $30 a month? I'm wondering if it will work the same?
