  • I have taken Phentermine before.. and it works all by itself, only bad thing is, you are supposed t take it a month and then off it a month, and I did this for about 4 months and the month I was off of it I would gain back what I had lost, but I never lost more than 10 lbs.. but I have issues with losing weight, its nearly impossible.. but Phentermine will definately give you tons of energy, but I wouldn't take it later 3 pm or you won't sleep! Good luck!

  • I hope that this is being used to "kick-start" therapy, not to merely mask your symptoms.
