Phentermine dosage weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Phentermine dosage weight loss


Avatar n tn And how good is it to buy HCG weight loss shots online?
Avatar n tn Phentermine is one of two drugs in the Fen-phen anti-obesity medication, the other being fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine. Fenfluramine was withdrawn from the U.S. market in 1997 after reports of valvular heart disease and pulmonary hypertension. Mechanism of action: Phentermine, as many other prescription drugs, works with neurotransmitters in the brain. It is a centrally-acting stimulant chemically related to the amphetamines.
Avatar n tn Low dosage of 25 mg topomax with phentermine for weight loss.Is this a good idea?Have about 40 pounds to lose and really struggling.
Avatar f tn I have been perscribed phentermine 37.5 tabs for weight loss. My first 6 weeks went well. In the last two weeks I have only lost 1 lb. However, I also started drinking more caffeinated drinks again. I didn't know it wasn't recommended. My question is...after building a tolerance, can I take a break and start it again? Will the tolerance have gone away? Will it be like starting over?
Avatar n tn I started B-12 shots once a week and one 15 mg Phentermine per day but am finding the Phentermine does not have the same effect as when I took it 5 years ago for weight loss. Are there different levels that doctors prescribe?
Avatar n tn Thanks for your VERY interesting response. I will look into Mesoderm Cream. Where do you get it. So glad to hear your not a raisin. :) Is there any reason why you chose not to do te phentermine? How long did it take for your 25 pound loss. I am very happy for you. I got my first B12 shot today. Along with a prescription of 10ml of B12 for $14.00 The dosage is 1ml shot every other week.
Avatar n tn I take topamax to control seizures and I must say that I am surprised doctors prescribe it for weight loss alone, and that you are willing to put up with the side effects of it just for weight loss when there are other weight loss drugs out there. The "goofiness and loss of words" bothers me tremendously. I have been taking it since April and that hasn't abated any. Unfortunately I did not experience any weight loss or loss of appetite from it like everyone says. I take 200 mg a day.
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn ATP injections back in November 2006. My dosage of phen is now 3 times per day. My start weight was 213. Since then, I have been losing about 2-4 pounds per week. My weight right now is 175. I have plateau'd for the past three weeks fluctuating between 175-177, but I cant seem to get below the 175 mark. I work out 3-4 times per week religiously (1/2 hour weight training 2x per week 1 hour cardio/aerobic 4x per week).
Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar f tn Greetings! I go to a weight loss clinic (Dr. Girouard in Huntersville, NC) and take phentermine 37.5 mg and a weekly HCG injection. Started the program 7/15/09 at 203LBs / 5' 9" / 45 year old female. My first weigh-in was this morning and I lost 22 Lbs in 4 weeks. I follow the program exactly as he details, exercise 6 times a week (walking), drink lots of water, vitamin at night, etc..
Avatar n tn The dangers and side affects of phentermine can be found on the internet. I have read them myself. It can help with obesity to lose weight, but it can be taken for too long of a time and addiction will take place. Have your husband read about it. Print it off the internet for him. Ask him to take a break from it. I read that a break needs to be taken from it since it can be habit forming........ and dosage should never be increased if it is no longer effective.
Avatar n tn Hi! Thanks for responding! I got the perscription for phentermine from a Dr. at a Weight Loss Clinic. The medication was shipped to me from a pharmacy. The numbers on the pills are A 159 split by an indented line. I spoke with the clinic this a.m. and they couldn't figure out why the pills would not be supressing my appetite. I asked if I might return the pills to the clinic and be sent more pills just to see if the problem is with those particular pills. So what do you think?
Avatar n tn I don't know of a protocol with hcg+diet+Penh. We are all talking about KT's book 'The weight loss cure' they don't want you to know about' (which you should purchace). That protocol is hcg+diet=weightloss I have posted a complete outline for purchacing product, mixing the product and injections in the topic "Yikes, I'm confused'. This should help.
Avatar n tn To Carrie76- phentermine is ther generic adipex used for weight loss. Yes it is similar to ephedrine. Thanks for everyones advice and comments. I am feeling much better. Thanks again!
Avatar n tn My question is does anyone have any experience with thyroid medication for weight loss. I gained back my weight again and would like to loose those seven pounds again. I am dieting and excercizing but if I cheat for one day I'll gain and I just maintain with excercize and diet. I am so tempted to go back on them but I am also concerned about my health. Also what are these injections I hear people talking about. HCG is that a hormone?
579324 tn?1276057874 but i would rather be a little heavier and eventually loss the weight than loss my life to a heart attack at age 21 (which is what my Dr said would have happened to me if I didnt regualte my thyroid and heart rate as soon as i did) -i would love to help anyone with questions whenever i can :-) and you just gottta keep smiling
Avatar n tn I live in the pittsburgh area and have my 1st appt tomorrow at a weight loss clinic, i was told that they will do blood work, ekg, etc. then another appt next week to meet with the doctor. they said i would next to get b12 injections 4-5x/week. does that seem like it is too much? It is my understanding that i will also be getting appetite suppressant, and diuretic. If anyone has input i would greatly appreciate it. CW192 GW130.
Avatar n tn I dont know how often I should take the shot and does that acctually support the weight loss? Please help! Also the 1st week I started with Phentermine well I felt thirsty and I was not hungry. After the 1st week I dont get as thirsty and I do get cravings.. Has this happened to everyone. Thanks your replys will be very appreciated.
Avatar n tn Last February (2006) I started taking phentermine for weight loss. I went from 175lbs to 150 lbs in a few short months. Unfortunately, I have always had some struggles with depression but had never been on medication for it before. Summer of 2006, I was having some major job stressors, family stressors, etc. and was still trying to lose weight and taking pehntermine off & on.
Avatar n tn I have a trainer that works with me, and I actually enjoy the meals that I eat and try everyday to make it fun as create new things with a variety of different foods. I am on a low dosage of phentermine and the water pill. It has always been really hard for me to get the weight off, and many people think that the drug does it all, but actually you have to put something extra into it to really get good results and that is dedication and will power.
Avatar n tn Couldn't reply to another thread, but I have just started at the weight loss clinic on Union Road in Gastonia. They have low calorie diet that is based on a glycemic index. The doctor also offers hCG shots. The doctor was kind of dry, but straighforward. The staff was absolutely outstanding. The office was very busy and I had a chance to talk to some returning patients and those that I spoke with were doing very well with the program.
Avatar n tn I've been reading those threads related to the hCG shots for weight loss subject, and I suspect that once again (as it happened in 1974) the method will be misused by all those who only wish to grab a commercial profit from its use. Please let me remind you again, and again, and again, that hCG is a PRESCRIPTION drug that MUST be dispensed by a licensed Physician. hCG injections are PART of a comprehensive weight reduction program.
1498386 tn?1403031253 Yes, I have a PCOS weight loss success story. ...Just not with Metformin. I was diagnosed about 20 years ago, or so. The only symptom I had was the inovulatory dysfunction. I weighed 97lbs from age 16 to age 30 or so. In my 30s, I went up to 110lbs, but that was good. Then, boom, around age 40, my periods became regular, but I started packing on the weight. By my mid-40s, I was over 160lbs! Diet & exercise didn't work. In fact, I often gained weight with caloric restriction...
Avatar n tn Has anyone used just the water pill and B12 (along with sensible diet and exercise, of course) with success or is the majority of weight loss help from the phentermine? Finally, has anyone in Los Angeles used the services at Westchester Wellness & Weight Loss? They're nearby and I was thinking about trying them... THANKS!
Avatar n tn I have been on Welbutrin for almost 4 months now and have noticed weight gain of about 8-10 pounds and I'm not eating anymore than I use to. I'm wondering if the 'weight-gain'/'weight-loss' issue is affected by whether or not people 'need' to lose weight before they start taking it. I consider myself to have a fairly high metabolism and I can maintain my weight quite easily. I know what causes me to gain weight and what I need to do to lose it.
