I really think you mean which.  I've heard a lot of people say Meridia didn't work for them, but I lost 26 pounds in 4 months taking it.  That was a couple years ago.  I have gained back about 10 pounds.  Darn!

I don't know what the situation is in your area with doctors, clinics, and so forth, but I can get phentermine a lot easier and cheaper where I am. I have tried them both with about the same results, although if I had to say I think I would say phentermine is working a little quicker. Meridia was over $100 per month while the phentermine is about $5-$7 per week. I take B-12/hcg shots too, but I have lost 15 lbs in about six weeks.

well I guess I should clarify that was not counting the doctor. I pay the doctor $10 per week for the shot plus prescription then get the pills from the pharmacy. So its around 60 - 70 per month altogether.

my sister receives B-12 shots from her regular family doctor. But I go to a weight loss clinic and get a B-12/ hcg combo shot. You could google weight loss centers or bariatric doctors in your area or I have heard you can order the hcg injections online and do them yourself. They work really well; I have lost nineteen lbs so far this summer. good luck

Do you know if there is a huge difference between the two? im going to contact him again on monday to ask for the phentermine rx. What is the B12/hcg shot? it helps with wieght loss? im taking alli right now its a lot like xenical.

I am not sure where you are, I am in Houston and the clinic I just went to yesterday was very convenient.

here is their contact data: www.wellcareclinic.com

It was $99 to start which included the Lipo B Shot, the prescription for the phentermine which cost $13.45 to fill and vitamins, a complete body and blood work up. I was very very happy with the staff.

Good Luck! I too am thinkingthin!
