pressure, leading to restlessness, palpitations, and insomnia. There is also the
chance of severe pulmonary hypertension and heart valve damage. You could

diarrhea or constipation, dizziness and headaches, tremors, restlessness, anxiety,

you experience any strange side effects (and realize that not all possible side
effects are listed in the article). If you are seriously considering taking
phentermine, thoroughly inform yourself about it and consult with a doctor to
make sure that it is the right drug for you.
