I have been there. Dr. Rubio and staff are very professional and maintain a reputable facilty. I have lost 22 pds. I am very glad I went. If you take you meds the correct way and eat, exercise sensibly you will see results fairly quickly. Good Luck

They give out Phenteramine 37.5 mg. If your family doctor would go along with it then he could write the rx. & you can get it filled at your local pharmacy for $25 a month. For about 7 days you will really feel keyed up from the meds. But tolerance develops very quickly. I say start with just half a pill & work your way up. After being on the pills daily for about 3 weeks you will have a great tolerance developed. By that 3rd week you should have started a routine of healthy eating. I recommend a diet like South Beach, maybe skipping the extremes. Drink LOTS of water or you will get dehydrated. The pills make you pee a lot. I have lost 30 lbs. since December & I have not exercised regularly.
I am having to exercise now to lose weight. Has anyone tried any other meds, that will help when Phenteramine quits working due to tolerance? I have changed a lot of habits but I'm not ready to try life minus meds. I was too fat too long.

Try the blue white 30 mg capsules for some reason I never grew a tolerance to them n they are time released so they work alot better he also has another pill called tenuates to help as well

went and they gave me 30mg phentermine in black capsule and made my chest hurt and feel awful. Took them three days...scared I was going to have heart attack! Had to stop taking them. I am perfectly healthy no heart/bp issues. They were brutal. Im 5'10 178 and I will just exercise more...its not worth the risk to feel so miserable and cracked out on those things!

What is this black pill you speak of? I have never seen black phenteramine. I wonder if it was weaker or stronger than the 37.5 mg. The 37.5 mg do not make me jittery.

those pills are a form of speed and addictive exercise would be your best bet.

Hey, does anyone know how the doctor determines your treatment. I am 5'7 150 lbs....I used to work out to keep my weight at 125 but recently I have developed bunions on both feet that prohibit me from working out like I used to....my appetite had always been ravenous and I can't afford surgery right now...would a doctor prescribe the 37.5 for me or does ur BMI have to be a certain number?

This clinic is seriously messed up. They will give diet meds to anyone even if you don't need them! A friend of mine is 5'5 and 135 and they gave them to her! Another friend of mine had a heart attack while on the meds she had high Bp but the doctor said she needed to lose weight so it was worth the risk. Think long and hard before going to this clinic.

I am sure the majority of people are fine just want everyone to be careful. I find it strange that regular doctors won't prescribe phentermine.

Cuz thn the weight loss clinics would go out of business lol good drs would rather u lost weight naturally of course .. I actually took the phentermine off and on over the last prob 7 or 8 years Until I figured out why I had extreme hunger 24/7 lol the 37.5 ones did give me a Lil bit of a chest concern but the blue white capsule time release were great I just wish he would give the shots without having to get the dang pills

are those black pills any good though. I go from time to time and all they have ever offered me are the white w/ blue specks, phentermine pills. Didn't know they had others.

I have never had any complications from any of the pills. Drugs are drugs, they all have their side effects!!!
