Are Phentermine And Metformin Safe Together?

Are Phentermine and Metformin safe together? Need to Lose 60 asked this question Oct 13th, 2012 9:54 pm Has anyone been prescribed Metformin with Phentermine? I need to lose 60 Lbs & just started Phentermine 2 days ago but I'm afraid to take both together. My Dr. prescribed BOTH of them at the same time but I'm afraid of side effects because I don't have diabetes. Any input or encouragement? How fast can I lose weight taking Phentermine alone?

If you're concerned about taking metformin, maybe you can Ask your dr. about this combination of medications.

    i was diagnosed with PCOS and taking metformin... im losing 1kg every day. ive been taking metformin for 3days now and lose 3kgs. my doctor prescribed me take metformin for 3months... im afraid that ill become underweight..


    Metformin has done some wonderful things for me but weight loss is not one. My endocrinologist did not want to put me on it since I didn't appear to have any metabolic dysfunction. I asked if I could try it anyway. Two years later the calcified cysts on my ovaries are gone and my body pelt has disappeared in some areas or become very fine. My arm hair is normal now. I have been on birth control and spironolactone since 2001 for PCOS symptoms but I wasnt diagnosed until a few years ago. I just had my 6th month blood work done for my endocrinologist and all my levels were good. Its so nice not to have elevated testosterone and be told its because I am fat.


    Metformin helps you lose weight as long as you meet a certain set of conditions. For example, if you're type 1 and have good blood sugar control, Metformin can help you lose weight. If you're type 2 and you don't have good blood sugar control, Metformin will not help you lose weight (though it will help lower your blood sugar).
