Rare (less than 1 percent incidence) adverse effects include:
- Valvular heart disease (in combination with dexfenfluramine and fenfluramine; causal relationship unc
- Primary pulmonary hypertension

Phentermine use is contraindicated in those who are:
- Known hypersensitivity or idiosyncratic reaction to sympathomimetic amines
- Taking amphetamine (i.e., Adderall, Dexedrine, Vyvanse), dexfenfluramine, fenfluramine, furazolidone, guanadrel, guanethidine, or have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) (e.g., phenelzine) in the last 14 days
- Peptic ulcer

- Contraindicated in cardiac disease (e.g. advanced arteriosclerosis, pulmonary hypertension, uncontrolled hypertension, arrhythmias) and cerebrovascular disease (stroke)
Pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
- Those receiving serotonergic medications such as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, tricyclic antidepressant, due to the potential for serotonin syndrome to be precipitated by the cotreatment.
Medicines which may interact with phentermine, such as dexfenfluramine, fenfluramine, furazolidone, or MAOIs (e.g., phenelzine) are contraindicated because of the risk of serious side effects, such as increasing headache, high blood pressure, slow heart rate, elevated temperature, or possibly fatal lung problems, may be increased. Guanadrel (Hylorel) or guanethidine (Ismelin) effectiveness may be decreased by phentermine. Antacids may decrease the excretion of phentermine.
Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (acetazolamide, dichlorphenamide, methazolamide) may decrease the excretion of phentermine.

Phentermine also has a secondary effect by causing the secretion of epinephrine or adrenaline, causing fat cells in the body to break down stored fat. It main target is reduce hunger and increase satiety. It can also release serotonin and dopamine (natural hormones within body), but to a reduced extent than that of norepinephrine.
