I took this a year ago and lost 70lbs! Then I had been off of it for almost a year and gained 20lb (my own fault from eating out) so I decided to go back to what I knew worked (and I loved the staff they are so helpful). They have always given me 37.5 and usually I had to take half for 2 weeks and then I could take a whole one. I first get them and take half NOTHING then I said fine and took a whole one... I'm so sleepy I can't stand it! I'm eating well but it isn't controlling my appetite like it did a year ago. I take the vitamins they have given me and I've done everything I did last year. I'm really frustrated because I spent this money because I knew it worked but it feels like I took a sleeping pill. I'm not depressed but everyone is asking me "What's wrong" I don't know I feel so blaaaaaah I work with nurses and they took my blood pressure and everything. The doctor took my blood as well and they said everything was perfect. It's only been a week and I haven't lost weight (which is understandable but last time I lost at least 2lbs the first week). I'm just really frustrated and can't find answers. I would call the office but they are closed right now.
How well are you sleeping? Fatigue or tiredness can come as a result of sleepless nights or following a period of over-stimulation, however, adverse effects of phentermine also include drowsiness, fatigue, and reduced energy levels. If you’re feeling fatigued or lacking in energy while taking phentermine and the problem persists, you should consult your doctor as it may be that you have an undiagnosed medical condition.

I've experienced the same thing and I've talked to many different people who have too. Turns out that they have ADHD and that's why THEY say it makes them tired. I'm not sure if that's the reason but it sounds very legit since amphetamines are meant to calm people with ADHD down a level or 2.
