The MD knew withdrawals are going to be expected. I was given chlonodine and phentermine to help. It worked will and now I am off meds. All this tx was supported by studies. A general MD will not have the knowledge to feel comfortable.

Try to find a MD who is a pain management specialist along with being an addiction specialist or addictionologist. These doctors are much more knowledgeable on pain management along with other treatment that will help support your pain management. For example, my pain management MD had me on a pain med from a chronic injury. He also discovered I needed testosterone. After a year of treatment my chronic pain was feeling so much better that we decided to try to stop the pain meds. The MD kne

Phentermine experience

You may feel like to begin with, but watch what you eat. I am not craving squash and zucchini with chicken. I lost 20 pounds in just over 2 months taking phentermine and all I did was change what I ate. No diet, just changed eating habits. Drinks lots and lots of water, it helps tremendously!! Good luck!!

fever blister from phentermine 30mg
This isn't from phentermine specifically - but if you are prone to cold sores, stress can bring them on. And, if you were having anxious feelings, this could feel stressful. I get them, but haven't noticed any "sudden" eruptions or change in the occurrence since being on phentermine.

That isn't from the phentermine. Dr. Meletio
