Dr. Hamilton requires a two month break after each six months on the weight loss program. Some people have a low thyroid condition that causes them to be overweight and the levothyroxine helps them to lose weight as much as the phentermine does. I've had success as a result and to insinuate that people go to him just to get "legal speed" as you call it is insulting. You should know what you're talking about before asking anyone to trust you.
Dr. Hamilton would not prescribe it if it was "legal speed". My mom couldnt sleep and she wanted him to give her some ambien to help and he flat out refused because he said that crap was worse than taking speed and he was not going to prescribe it! I am sure he watches the ones who want the diet pills for other purposes real close, he is a good doctor.

Generally, phentermine appears to be relatively well tolerated.[2] It can produce side effects consistent with its catecholamine-releasing properties, e.g., tachycardia (increased heart rate) and elevated blood pressure, but the incidence and magnitude of these appear to be less than with the amphetamines. Because phentermine acts through sympathomimetic pathways, the drug may increase blood pressure and heart rate. It may also cause palpitations, restlessness, and insomnia. Additionally, phentermine has the potential to cause psychological dependence. After short-term use, tolerance begins and can be followed by rebound weight gain.

Cardiovascular side effects include palpitations, tachycardia, and elevation of blood pressure. In the central nervous system, it can cause overstimulation, restlessness, dizziness, insomnia, euphoria, dysphoria, tremor, and headache. Its gastrointestinal effects include dryness of the mouth, unpleasant taste, diarrhea, constipation, and other gastrointestinal disturbances. It may also cause allergic effects - urticaria and changes in libido.

He's a reputable dr. The DEA is cracking down on drs and hydrocodone in about six months will be hard to get. Try changing your life, and seeking a dr who knows you instead of dr shopping.

My aunt and I started going last month and he stresses exercise and eating right! The pill helps but it's still work on your part if you want good results. We go back tomorrow and by my scale I have lost 17 pounds but I also worked hard! He also lets you know on your first visit that the pulls can be very addictive and after 6 months he requires a 90 day break! My best friend went and was made to break after 6 months just like he stated on her first visit! If you personally haven't been then dot judge and make statements you cannot back up with facts!

Can you see him for other issues? Can you get other medications for other medical problems? Or will he only consult for weight loss?

What did the exam consist of and did it take a long time and did you have to have a lot of weight to lose before he gives phentermine?
