PHENTERMINE AND ENERGY DRINKS

HI!I AM STARTING ON THE PHENTERMINE PILLS AND I WAS JUST CURIOUS IF ANYONE HAS DRANK ENERGY DRINKS, (RED BULL, MONSTER, ETC...) WHILE USING PHENTERMINE AND IF SO DID THIS INCREASE THE EFFECTS IN A STRANGE WAY? I JUST DO NOT WANT TO CHANCE IT IF THAT IS THE CASE. ANY RESPONSES WILL BE APPRICIATED.

Just got back from the market and I checked out Rockstar, Redbull, etc.  They all seem to have a diet version diet that use artificial sweeteners and that will bring your calorie count alot.  However, I would still advise not using it with the phen.  People say the phen gives them NRG.  Perhaps if you find you need more after a week or so on the phen, I would suggest you just drink a little at first and see what happens before driking an entire can.  Hope this helps.

Was told by my doc to avoid caffiene but a cup would be okay if taken at least 30 to 45 minutes after phen. I have to say, however, I, myself, would never consume any energy drinks while taking phen.  In my honest opinion, NRG drinks are like heart attacks in a can.  They are loaded with all kinds of ****, caffiene, and SUGARS.  Not very good for someone trying to diet!  I don't allow my teen to drink them anymore, so I don't have ingredients and calorie counts in front of me.  Quite frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if one can is more than the allowable day's calories.  I seriously believe they could cause harm if taken with phen.

Hi, I can not drink caffeine while on phentermine.  It just makes me more anxious (like I've had 20 cups of coffee).  If I must have a cup, I drink it as the phen starts to wear off, but not much....like 4 oz.

The phenetermine will make you jittery, cause sleeplessness etc., especially  during the 1st 2 weeks of use.  I think the energy drinks are not so good, either, and the diet red bull just tastes awful.  You shouldn't need it with the phen.  If you are taking phen and a water pill, you will need to replace your electrolytes with potassium.  If you do not get potassium or forget to take it, it can make you tired.

Good luck.

I was able to get off the phen in less than 2 weeks.  Once my body adjusted to less food/cals, I no longer needed it. BTW, I was only taking one pill a day but did find I was hungry at night (a bad habit from nibbling late hours even when not hungry) so I took half in the a.m. and then the other half later in the day.  Hence...no late night jitters.  Consider doing it this way and see what happens.  Either way,  your body will get accustomed sooner or later as stated above and hopefully you won't need them. Good luck. I'll keep you in my thoughts.

Don't do it I drank the biggest can of red bull when I took my phentermine got jittery real bad and sweating then my stomach got jacked up I felt like I had the stomach bug couldn't eat stomach felt hollow for the next two days it's a horrible feeling so whatever you do avoid doing both together pick one.

Or better yet, pick none.  Both are really bad for you and if used over a long period of time even worse.  There are no shortcuts.
