Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Phentermine is a drug which is a psychostimulant and is used to reduce the appetite of a person. I hope that you have been prescribed phentermine by a Doctor.If this is the case, then please know that pain in the stomach and leg swelling is a side effect. To be sure though, you need to be examined by a Doctor. The Doctor may modify the therapy so that the side effects are not so severe.Hope this helps you.
