 Yesterday Was my 1st day on phen 30 mg, Dr. started me with this dose to see how I do..

I did not feel hungry all day yesterday, I ate healthier and got very full with very little food.

I'm motivated, I did not crave any sweets, that is so amazing, since I had to have some type of sweets throught out the day.

I'm just worried about one thing,, I did not sleep all night, today I'm tired with a head ache.

Can anyone give me a suggestion ? Do you have this problem ?  If I don't sleep I cant concentrate and feel to tired to work out, what can I do, I'm going to talk to my Dr. and see, but anyone can help, give me a tip or something.

Thank YOu ! God BLess

What time did you take you Phen?   You should take it first thing in the morning so you have a better chance at sleeping at night. Do you drink caffeine?  If you do try stopping that especially at night.  I have been on it six days and really only had dry mouth for the most part. I did have a headach two days in a row but I did not have one today.  After your body gets use to you medication it should die down.  Let me know how it goes!

Take your Phen early in the AM right after you wake up with lots of water. All I have experienced is dry mouth and a little constipation that I fixed by drinking more water. The first couple of days I noticed that I was a little hyper and had a hard time speaking slow enough so that I didn't loose anyone in a conversation. Also, try to eat something even if it's small because even if you don't feel hungry your body needs nutriction. Also, take a multi vitamin it will help provide you with what your body need that it's not getting through food. I've been on Phen for almost a month now. You might want your doc to back you down a little and ease you into taking it. My doc started me off at 18 mg for the 1st 2 weeks and then moved me up. Good luck! O ! one thing I had to find out on my own: one of my friends is also on it and when I didn't loose much in the first few weeks I was disappointed and I mentioned it to her because she is why I got put on it. She said not to be disappointed because she didn't really start to loose untill she had been on it for 3 or 4 weeks. Me too, now its about 2 - 3 pounds a week.

Today is my first day on phen too - and my first with joining this group and site.  I have done phen before and I know it works, but you completely have to learn better eating habits while on it or you end up gaining all back, as I have.  I am trying it again.  It does control my appetite, but I do have to take about 1/2 of a Tylenol-PM to get any sleep at night, even if I take it first thing in the morning.  I figure it is worth it.  I might look into Unisom or something without the Tylenol component in it.  I am amazed how it can control cravings and appetite after first dose.  I am glad I can share with others who are struggling and succeeding on here too.  Thx.

Are you talking about phentermine? I've been on it since the 5th of January. I too have had a hard time sleeping. I've cut out all beverages except water. I take it first thing in the morning with a full glass of water and wait 30 minutes to eat. My breakfast consists of either a slim fast or a banana, both are very filling! :)

My doctor will not prescribe it to me, so I bought some in Mexico. I would like to find a doctor that will prescribe it. Do you know of one in the Phoenix area?

Thanks for your help!
