Am currently taking Phentermine without the Celexa.  These are the side effects I found for both.


In clinical trials, over 10% of patients reported one or more of the following side effects: fatigue, drowsiness, dry mouth, increased sweating (hyperhidrosis), trembling, headache, dizziness, sleep disturbances, insomnia, cardiac arrhythmia, hallucinations, blood pressure changes, nausea and/or vomiting, diarrhea, heightened anorgasmia in females, impotence and ejaculatory problems in males. In rare cases (around over 1% of cases), some allergic reactions, convulsions, mood swings, anxiety and confusion have been reported.


More common: Insomnia, Hypertension,  Irritability  Nervousness, Euphoria, Dry mouth , Unpleasant taste, Blurred vision, Heartburn/Acid reflux, Changes in libido, Clumsiness, Confusion, Diarrhea, Dizziness, Headache, Arrhythmia, Nausea or vomiting, Psychosis, Skin rash or itching, Stomach pain, Fatigue

Less common: Convulsions (seizures), Dizziness, Fever, Hallucinations, Hostility with urge to attack, Irregular blood pressure, Lightheadedness or fainting, Periods of mania followed by period of depression, Tremors, trembling or shaking, Overactive reflexes, Panic, Restlessness, Severe nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, Stomach cramps, Weakness.

I am taking the 30 MG Phetermine and experienced many side effects for the first week. They have all gone away for the time being. The side effects that were most common for me were insomnia, irritability, lower libido, and some fatigue in the evenings.

I am curious if you are not experiencing these side effects has it decreased your appetite like it is supposed to?

Will your pharmacist not answer your question for you?  I find my pharmacist willing and eager to answer my questions as pertains to prescriptions.  Just a thought...

Good luck!
