I just started taking Lexapro and Phentermine about 3 weeks


Q: I just started taking Lexapro and Phentermine about 3 weeks ago. I was fine the first two weeks but this past week, weird things have been happening. I haven't been able to poop in almost 2 weeks. When I do some minuscule physical activity like even bending down to pick something up, I am exhausted. I feel like I'm going to pass out. My body trembles constantly. I have been having horrible chest pains. Every time I breathe it feels like someone is stabbing me in the chest right above my heart. My mental state has been the most terrifying. I feel extremely uncomfortable even around people I've known my whole life. I feel uneasy and awkward in my own home. I've been feeling very disconnected to myself. Like I'm not myself. My mood switches from angry to happy in a matter of seconds. I have taken lexapro before and phentermine before but never together and I never had these side effects. Thank you.
