I dont think it'll do any good. Your body needs nutrition, and you'll just be starving yourself. The weight will come right back when you quit.

Phentermine can be very dangerous for some people. It stimulates the nervous system and increases blood pressure and heart rate. BE VERY CAREFUL!!!

Weight watchers is ideal. It is actually not a diet, it just teaches you how to eat right.

We are all looking for a quick way to lose weight. It's not easy! I have been a lifetime member of Weight Watchers since 1985, and my weight hasn't fluctuated more than 5-8 pounds since then, except during pregnancy. I tried other diets, but they didn't work. Common sense tells you...expend more calories than you take in. Push back from the table. Exercise. Walk. Fad diets will not work, and you will probably put the weight back on when you return to normal eating. Any diet that requires you to omit a food group or eat foods only from one or two groups is not a healthy eating plan.

Diet pills...they caused my heart rate to increase so much that I had to be taken home from work one day by my co-workers. It was so scary that I thought I was actually having a heart attack. Never again did I touch a diet pill of any type. Think about it...it increases your heart rate while decreasing your appetite. Not a very healthy thing to do to your body. Our bodies need food.

sounds like you were taking over the counter pills--phentremine is a prescription diet pill--it did not increase my heart rate at all. the doctor would not even prescribe it to me without doing an ekg and blood work. the idea of it is to still eat 3 meals but you are supposed to eat a big breakfast, eat a medium size lunch, and eat a very small dinner. the pills give you a feeling of being full so you don't want to eat as much. one thing that helps is that it makes your mouth feel dry and I drink water all day long (which is very good for you)

I did take over-the-counter diet pills many years ago, and it scared me enough to never try diet pills again. I took nutrition classes in college and learned about eating right and exercising. That's the best way to maintain a healthy weight, not with drugs of any kind. I know there are different ways to lose weight and it depends on how much weight a person has to lose and what works best for that person. I wanted to lose "baby" weight after my first child and Weight Watchers did it for me. I also love to exercise and walk.

If you dont mind what dr do you go to get these, I would like to check into myself. After having my children and a car accident that left steel rods in both legs, Im having a hard time getting rid of the weight.

My OB prescribed them to me. You do have to go in once a month, and they will not re write the script if you arent losing. You have to change your eating habits when you quit, or the pounds will come back.

I believe a family doctor will do it, but you have to be a certain amount over your "normal weight" based on the charts. Once your under the amount, the pills usually stop coming.

I've taken phentermine off and on for a couple of years. I can drop the weight off, but then put it back on when I go off of them. They do give you good energy though.
There are 2 places in town you can get these (non-Dr offices) One is across from Lowes, then another is down in Talbott, I think it shares the building with State Farm insurance... There is usually a coupon in those little stands at Walmart that gets you $10 off the Talbott location (first visit)
Or... I personally go to Dr. Zain, pay whatever your insurance deductible or copay is, and you can get the pills filled in the generic form at Mike's Pharmacy for $18-$19 or Name brand at CVS for like $40. My regular Dr wouldn't give me the pills. Usually they ask you what you think a healthy weight is, or what you want to lose. Be reasonable, and don't say, well I want to lose 40lbs, because that won't get you pills either..

I went to a doctor at Healthstar (who shall remain nameless due to all the bashing that goes on) but I really like this doctor and have complete faith in this person. Like I said this doctor would not prescribe them without an EKG and blood work. You do have to go back every month for blood pressure check. This doctor did tell me that you could stay on them for up to 18 months at a time. I pay my regular co-pay and get the rx filled at Crescent Center for $19.50.
I had heard from a friend that if you go to a weight-loss center it tends to be more expensive because they want you to take extra stuff like vitamins and such.

Exactly, the weight loss centers charge you a higher price, because they are the "one-stop-shop" Not to mention, you have a long wait sometimes to get in because the LNPs are only there 1-2 days a week and everybody goes on the same day.
My Dr (and the others) always watch the BP, heart rate, etc, but never did the blood and EKG. sounds like you have a better doctor (or more caring) than I do. The weight loss centers also give you a B-12 shot and the vitamins at no extra charge with the pills. B-12 doesn't affect me whatsoever. I'm high energy anyway..
Been there done that

I've used OTC and Phenteramine. Phen works but it is dangerous. I still occassionally take them now. It doesn't make them safe. My mom had a heart attack at 50. Cardiologist said no one should ever take diet pills. They stress your heart. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone over 40. 35 if your on birth control or smoke. If your gonna get them, get them soon at the diet clinic because they will be outlawed just like everything else due to people abusing them & selling them.
** I'd rather spend extra at the diet clinic then to be in the room alone with that wack job, Dr. Zain. That man is a complete loon.
