metformin and phentermine lov'n Morgan 17 kids; Hickory, North Carolina 2355 posts

My dr just perscribed me a combination of phentermine and metformin to help me lose weight. I took just pentermine a few years back and I remember NEVER being hungry and when I did eat it was very little and I would feel stuffed! And ALWAYS having tons of energy, running circles around people! But this time around I do get hungry a couple times a day and I am not feeling that burst of energy like I did last time. Like I can tell its there but i don't really feel the need to get up and do something like I did the last time!

could it be because my starting weight is higher this time so the pill isn't as strong in my system or is the metformin causing this?

why are you taking weight loss pills if you are pregnant?

I just got perscribed Metformin and phentermine today and i am a little nervous about the 2. just wondering if it helped you. the doc wants me to take 2 of the metaformin with dinner and they just look like really big pills, and alot to be taking together...the pentermine i have taken before so it doesn't scare me but this metaformine is new to me
