Panbesy - Guys, do you have difficulty urinating? Also...

Postby Butoot » Thu, 25 May 2006 1:57 pm

Hi

I started taking Panbesy two days ago.

I get the thirst and insomnia side-effects so well documented here.

However, I also noticed that my penis has become much smaller (like when one is cold or very scared).

Also, it takes a much longer time for my urine to come out, and it takes a long time to finish urinating (dribs and drabs).

Do you guys get this side-effect too?

Any comments or advice?

(I was totally fine before taking Panbesy, ie no size problem, no problem with strong urine flow).

Thanks!

Hi Butoot. Quick question: was the diet drug you are currently taking prescribed by a doctor? If so, I think it would be a good idea to check with that doc about these side effects.

From what I've read, this drug (commonly known as phentermine) should only be available by prescription in most countries... so if you're on it without a doctor specifically telling you to be on it, you're gambling with your health.

Hope this helps!

I would think getting it off would be a major worry!!!!

Seriously, why the heck are you taking this stuff then?

Is shrunken penis a common occurence when one get's spooked? I didn't know that.

You should stop taking that crap mate. Almost sounds like it's giving you 'stones' as it makes you drib.

I reckon that is not good for the kidneys brah.

Thank you for your comments gentlemen.

The pills were prescribed by a doctor.

I used to run everyday. However a knee ligament injury, I stopped running and literally ballooned from 74 kg to almost 86 kg. That had made my knees worse and thus began a vicious cycle. I tried cross-training in the gym, I tried brisk walking but the knees hurt after each exercise. (I hate swimming although I know it is good).

So the best way to get back my fitness, especially my knees, which are obviously not used to the extra weight, is to lose some weight first. I have no choice now but to try the pills to see whether i can get my weight down quickly. I used to be an avid sportsman and I used to slam the use of slimming pills to lose weight. Sigh. I am someone who cannot diet, because I have food around me all the time. With the pills, for the past two days, I DID NOT feel like eating. So that's good.

It's just that the funny side effects are bothering me. I read in another thread on Panbesy that there is indeed a temporary reduction in the size of the penis and also a reduction in sex drive (no good). So I guess the side effects are "normal".

Been there mate.

Used to have a pretty bright future in a particualr sport till a nasty spinal injury. The medication I was put on, piled the kilos on me. I know how it feels like to be an active person one day and in an overnight ( as in my case ) be rendered a little helpless.So what did I do?

I channel my energy on passing the knowledge I gained over the years in that sport.

I know it can really be a big time bummer and it's always hard initially, heck it doesn't really get that easy through the course of time but if you focus on other things that you can do...

you will feel better. Infact, you'll be amazed at how much you can accomplish, it takes a lot to stand up after a fall but you can do it.

As for being around food all the time...

I cook all the time but I do not have the cravings, only once in a while.

Butoot, although I'm a woman I would really suggest you stop taking the pills. What do you think will happen when you stop after losing the weight? You'll probably just put it on again.

Those pills are dangerous, they have been banned in the UK. Under no circumstance should you drink alcohol, take any psudoephidrine pills (found in cold and flu tabs) , do not drink caffeine or energy drinks.

Please think twice about staying on them, you are obviously somewhat sensitive to the meds to be suffering the effects you describe.

A couple of extra kilos isn't worth risking your health.

What a crock of crap that is! C'mon Butoot -- you sound like you've got a good head on your shoulders. Get back in the pool, eat a low fat, fibre rich diet. Cut out sugar and alcohol and the weight will come off. Pills for weight loss are never the answer. :wink:

Listen to the two ladies mate...

sometimes when you have 'something', you tend to take it for granted.

Do it before 'your nuts get squirreled away'.

Believe me the ladies prefer that that part of the anatomy is intact regardless of the extra love handles.

I too had a recent injury that made it impossible for me to exercise for about a year. Yes, and the weight piled on. Not a lot, but enough. The day that wretched cast came off I was in the pool. I hate swimming, but three times a week or so I force myself to swim at least a few laps. It really is the only rehab I can do for my arm, since I still am on a weight bearing restriction.

So, yes it sucks. The injury may not have been within your control, but how you manage your recovery is. Why oh why would you cause further harm to yourself by taking something that causes these side effects?
