My 7 year old daughter start taking this medication in December. Although she lost a lot of weight at the very beginning of the treatment, she has maintained since the first two weeks of being on it.

I have been SO hungry! I know th ... Show Full Comment

I went back on phentermine (not normally used for ADHD, but the others were not strong enough) After a month, ... Show Full Comment
