I've been taking Phentermine for about 3 years.  The only thing is your body becomes immune to it and it is not as effective.  About every three months I try to stop taking them for a few weeks.  Otherwise I end up having to take two pills a day to see any results.

arent you supposed to stop after 6 months? well my dr said that, but still wouldnt give them to me. said i needed to lose 5-10 pounds on my own first!!! if i could do that, i wouldnt need pills. anyway i started eating healthy and cutting portions a few weeks ago. i am taking the disolving B12 vits. drinking lots of water and walking when i can. so far i have only lost 3-4 pounds, but i really want to keep it off. people tend to gain after getting off phentramine (phentermine). maybe your dr can help you to wean off. if you are taking them make sure you are having your blood pressure checked on a regular basis.

I just started taking phentermine 2 weeks ago and have lost 8 pounds(132 right now) 5'2". My goal is to get back to 115-110 which is a healthy weight for my height. I had a tummy tuck last year along with a boob job. I am now a 32DD and wear a 5 jeans in juniors. Gosh I feel better than ever about myself and finally getting those last pounds off! This stuff really works.
I purchased my phertermine online at us-pills.com you will use there online doctor not a local and you don't have to provide your doctors name either for contact. Your BMI just has to be 25 or over. My BMI was 25 and I got mine no problem.Just answer the questions and if they have problems filling they will contact you.

to my knowledge it is OK to keep doing it the way bev said, three months on then two or three weeks off. That way you don't become immune to it. Also, you do want to keep your blood pressure checked so if you start getting it online, you need to be getting it checked somewhere else. Good luck.

I get my pills at www.customhrt.com they are cheaper than anywhere I have looked.  I get 100 pills, the 37.5 for $89.00 that includes shipping.  I always receive them within 3 to 4 days after I order them.

I lost 20 lbs on my own first, I took vitamin B12 complex and ate healthier and exercised. I started phentermine and I've lost another 26 lbs, I am only going to be on it for a total of 6 months.  I believe I have made a lifestyle change, this isn't just a diet for me, it's an actual change in my lifestyle.  My sister took phentermine for about a year she lost a lot of weight, she went off it for a few months and still lost 20 more lbs.  It's all about your lifestyle.

phertermine is the best, i have lost a total of 45lbs in six months, by taking the pills, exercising 4times a week for an hour, and cutting down on meals, i eat almost the same things, just less bread and o sodas, added more fruit, and yogurt, and cheese to my diet, less meat, i feel great i am 47 and the weight has taken off 10 yrs. I take 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening they seem more effective that way, and for some reason my concentration and organizational skills has improved by 100%

Hi Bev,
I am looking at a post from you from 2007 and have just tried to go to the site you suggest but only a privacy policy comes up.  Are you still getting your tablets from them?
