Has anyone ever taken Phentermine?

If so, did it work well for you? How long were you on it and what was your dose? From what I've read online about it, a lot of people have had success with it.  Thanks in advance!

  • Did your doc right a prescription with refills? Or did you it online w/o a script? I can only take a half to one pill(37 mg) a day and it doesn't look like my doc is going to write me another script for it. Are you working out alot and just not eating much? I eventually become starving but she won't let me take any more then 1 a day

  • Most diet pills eventually get FDA approval taken away and it's pulled from shelves, because after it's too late it's long term DEADLY side effects become known. Take Meridia and fen-phen as recent examples. Even Alli was linked to causing sever liver damage and failure in people. Reality is what may seem like a miracle pill today can kill you tomorrow.

    Specific info on Phentermine, which has been banned in several countries already for it's possible severe and deadly side effects is here:

  • I know there's no miracle pill and my doc warned me of the side effects. It was interesting to see what people say from a different angle because all I've read is success stories. Thanks for the address!

  • A friend of mine has taken it and gotten great results with it. But she also suffers side effects that I wouldnt want. She gets jittery while on it and a little depressed without it. She is too dependant on it if you ask me.
