I was just thinking with all the threads that say the phen they are receiving is "weak"
which got me to thinking just how many do you all
take per day?
And do you think it has gotten less effective within the last couple of years? (by manufacturers)
Also, what is your preference and why?
I.E. A159s? 30 mg blue/clears? etc.
I will start off by saying I have had to take 2 30 mg a day.
I have had in the past had to take 3 37.5 per day.
This has had nothing to do with being immuned to it either because I have been off of it for several months and even took a break for a year and the 2nd day of taking them got the weak effect.
Please dont be bashful in your responses, I am truly interested in what you have to say.
However, I would appreciate it if you keep it constructive and polite and respectful. :)
I look forward to hearing your experiences.
All the best! :wink:
Cozy

I take the 37.5 tablet and am just taking 1/2 (when trying to stretch them out) to a 1 a day. Years ago when trying to lose pregnancy weight, the doctor told me to take another 1/2 around 3 pm which helped, but kept me up all night. I'd rather get some sleep so I don't take more than the 1 per day. I wouldn't be surprised if one would need more if they weigh more. My husband is a big guy - 6'4 - 220lbs and the average dose of any OTC medicine never seems to be enough for him.

Hey cozy -

Even though you have taken breaks between using Phentermine, I've read that it's never as effective as the very first time you took it. Yes, the breaks do help a bit, but our body's cells have a "memory" and don't respond as well as the first time. I originally lost 30 lbs on it (it's very hard for me to lose weight, so that was huge for me!). Since starting it again, I've only lost a few pounds.

I know there are lots of fake and expired meds floating around, but I also believe people think they should react to Phen the way they did the first time they ever took it. They/we are hoping for something that cannot happen for most of us. So, of course, people get disappointed.

The phenomenon of becoming immune, for lack of a better term, is the concept behind phen/prozac. The Prozac is believed to prolong the anorectic effects of Phentermine. Those unwilling or unable to take Prozac can try substituting 5HTP which is available over the counter. It supposedly has a similar action as the Prozac.

Just my $.02

I appreciate your $.02 :) :) Miss pinkpatzi,
It is very helpful. :wink:
If I may ask which variety do you prefer?
I have tried all except the 273?
I hope that is right :?: :?: . :shock:
A159s and the v 30/50 were real weak and these all came right from my pharmacy too.
To me, Its definately not the phen of yesteryear which gave you a "pep in your step" ! :crybaby:

The last round of phen I took, I kept it to no more than 1 and half of the 37.5's. It worked very well. Took this dosage for about a month and lost 11 pounds which is a big deal for me.

There was a point in the past when I took phen for 6 straight months upping the dose every time they lost effectiveness. At the end I was taking 4 or so a day. Oddly they didn't much effect my sleep or mood whilst actually taking them, but when I ran out I completely crashed. People say you can't get addicted to phen, and so far I think that's true if you stay at the recommended dosage (or close to), but if you are irresponsible with them as I definitely was you can become physically dependent on them. I wasn't running around in the streets robbing old ladies or anything, but when I ran out I was so tired that I slept for 2 or three days straight, only waking up to eat, and I felt like a complete slug for days after that. Scary and not something I'd recommend dabbling with.
I have not had that problem since, but again the most I'll take now is 1 and a half for no more than 3 months.

As far as the weak stuff goes...I don't know if it's any different than it used to be in general, but I do know that I've gotten some weak/fake pills, because I was taking them for about a month and could feel each one, then when that bottle ran out, I started the next and felt nothing at all that day. It was a switch within one day. I hadn't had time to become immune. It had to be the pills.

Anyway, sorry for the length of this. That's my info. Hope it's helpful.

I haven't been really taking my phentermine anymore. I feel like most days I have my eating under control and don't need it. But when I feel like I may overeat on a certain day, I usually take 1/2 37.5mg tablet or a whole 30mg capsule. Today I took a capsule because tomorrow is my offical weigh in and I want to do well today.
