Oh my goodness, thank you so much for posting this! I was so scared! I started taking Phentermine for obesity a few days ago and I feel so much better than I have in a very long time. I really can think more clearly, I haven't had problems with feeling jittery, I am more organized, I handle stress better, and most of all I am really a lot happier. I couldn't understand it and it was really scaring me because I have known so many people who became addicted to different drugs and I'd rather be obese than be one of them, but I really like feeling better. I am even getting through my test books faster, without getting bored and distracted all the time. I looked to the internet to find out if how I am feeling means I am getting addicted and it turns out, these are signs I have untreated ADD! That's okay, both of my sons have ADD and I've known I might have it but have always been able to do well without medication. If medication can make me feel like this though, I am going to look into it. Thank you so very much for posting this!View Thread
