I have been on this medication for about 2 and 1/2 years. It has been great, yet at this point I think there has been a build up of some sort. I have noticed I am increasingly anxious. Maybe that is just due to the idea of stopping the drug and gain weight back.

I've taken it before. But now it doesn't seem to work as well for me. I'm taking the highest miligram. I exercise and watch what I eat. Maybe I will get off it for a while and start over in a few weeks. That might make it kick in a little. My Dr. will not prescribe it to his patients. So I got if from an on line pharmacy.

I am taking phentermine now for the 2nd time. I first took it when my oldest child was 2 1/2. I had tried all sorts of diets to get the baby weight off with no results before. My doctor recommended combining the drug with a low carb diet and I lost 50 pounds in about 2 months. I went from 190 to 140. I did not exercise at all, but was very strict about my diet.

Despite 1 hour work-outs at the gym four days per week, and following weight watchers, in three months my weight did not change. One week on Phentermine, I lost 7 pounds. One month on Phentermine, I lost over 15. I will find a way to take Phentermine every day for the rest of my life. I will never be overweight again.
