Hey Phen forum funmeisters! :)
Punchie here, I have read complaint after complaint after...well you know :lol: about Phen being weak even from our pharmacies!
I went to drugdigest.org and found this information and thought I would share it with you all. I am adding images(drugdigest wouldnt let me copy theirs) of the most mentioned pills here on the forum.
Do any of these look familiar?
I just got a refill at a local pharmacy and this is what I got, The ADIPEX-P by gates and then I saw the following..Very disturbing!
Could this be why the medications seem weak? I think maybe so.

This is what I found!
The following pictures and item descriptions were found:

Interesting...mine worked for a few days..and then nothing.

This is what I got:

Phentermine 37.5mg Tab (Actavis Towata LLC)Still on market - mine were in a caplet form and had A 167 on it - the caps were blue and white.

Anyone else have these?

I got a prescription through Dr. Branch and filled it at my local grocery store.

Thanks for the info, but is there a way to tell where the pills were manufactured when we order them online. For instance, a lot of us keep getting those weak mp273's.

Anyone familiar with "qualitest" (manufacturer) and the pill is like a light blue with a LOT of speckles (usually the pills are white with few blue speckles)? The numbers stamped on the front are "50/30."

37.5 mg

I just got my script from my usual pharmacy and these seem weaker.

Thanks!

Yeah I think that one is the least effective of all of them, When I got mine at CVS I had to take 3 a day. :thumbsdown:

Thanks...I just took two this morning. Please, no flames, I never take two at a time. That is my point, these don't work AT ALL.

I am going to start a new thread asking about returning meds to the pharmacy. If anyone has an answer, plese post there....

Imagedirtymartini*(I love your user name) :) ,
No flaming here :) , I agree 100% with you, If you are speaking of the 50/30s I myself have tried these and like those who have mentioned it here, From my experience, They were super weak :cry: .
I had to take two at the same time too. therefore it was really only a 15 day supply.
I believe this qualitest is omitting something from the pill to make it less effective and that really angers me :x, Regardless of whether it is generic or not, It is not right to consumers because you pay for a 30 day supply of a medication that is suppose to compare to name brand. Sadly, I do not believe these "Bricks and mortar" pharmacies will take them back, Perhaps the onlines will though.

Ah Ha! I just knew the blue & clear 30 mg capsules I got from telx-orders were not as good as the the ones I had gotten from pricebuster's. I even posted on this board about it. The ones from telx have a red Eon 5000 printed on them. The 30 mg blue & clear capsules I got from pricebuster doesn't have anything printed on them and they really do seem to be stonger.
However, now with all the pricebuster problems I've been reading, I'm not sure what to do. I'll keep you all posted on my quest and how it turns out.
Punchie, thank you very much for your research and enlightenment!
