There is always much talk about side effects when any medication is in question. Most people are interested in the side effects that might be caused by a certain medication and it is a natural thing. However, there are certain types of medications that generate more talk about side effects than others and medications for erectile dysfunction are the first that come to mind. Phentermine is a weight loss medication and it is also a group of medications that is scrutinized over when its side effects are in question.
In order to understand why this is so, we must be aware of one thing and that is the fact that the main competitors on the weight loss market are natural products. Now, these natural products do not require any approval to be introduced to the market and it is safe to say that their efficiency is doubtful, to say the least. This, of course, makes it necessary for the manufacturers of these medications and the people who sell them to focus on one point at which they can be viewed as superior to Phentermine, the side effects. Their products do not cause any side effects, which is quite natural as they affect absolutely no processes in the body, while Phentermine, a proper medication can cause certain side effects and no one is trying to conceal this fact. However, it is also important to know that things are nowhere near as dramatic as some people want you to think.
In fact, Phentermine wouldn’t have been approved by the FDA if it was deemed unsafe. However, the fact is that some side effects are possible when taking Phentermine. This, of course, does not mean that you are going to experience any. Moreover, Phentermine is considered to be a well-tolerated medication that is unlikely to produce any side effects. However, as we wish to provide our readers with all the information possible, we will now cover the side effects that are possible when taking Phentermine.
The most common side effects of Phentermine are mild ones and you should not worry about these, as they are most likely to go away in time and to subside as you continue to use the medication.
These include: restlessness, hyperactivity, dizziness, headaches, insomnia, dry mouth, upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea, changes in the sex drive. If any of these should become too bothersome and if any of these makes it impossible for you to lead a normal lifestyle, contact your doctor.
There are also some more serious side effects of Phentermine, but these are extremely rare and there is very, very little chance that you are going to experience them. These include: shortness of breath, chest pains, fainting feeling, confusion, irritability, pounding heartbeats, extreme mood swings, or signs of extremely high blood pressure. If you do experience one of these (which is highly unlikely), you need to contact your doctor at once.
Once again, we want to stress the fact that Phentermine is well-tolerated and that it rarely causes any side effects. Of course, as long as you take it as your doctor has prescribed it. Any changes to your regimen that you make on your own increase the likelihood of side effects occurring.
