Doctor advised I take 2 of my 15mg pills a day either both in the morning or 1 in the morning and 1 at lunch time. I have been taking 2 in the morning and they are working extremely well for me.
I have a great amount of energy and no appetite throughout the entire day. One thing I have noticed about this drug is that it has made me more thirsty and I have been drinking more water than usual. I have no other side effects. I feel very energized and alert. If you are still feeling hungry you may want to talk to your doctor about your dosage. I have tried over the counter diet pills but they made me feel light headed and jittery and never took the appetite away like they claimed.
I feel wonderful taking Phentermine. When I received my prescription I really thought about my weight loss goals. I have been yoyo dieting and never stuck to a true diet with a exercise plan. With the extra help these pills have given me I have been strictly maintaining proportion control and what I eat. My plan is to train myself on proportion control and health eating so that I am able to maintain my weight when I am off Phentermine. I have gone cold turkey and stopped drinking soda of any kind.
