Hi everyone! It's my turn to bug you guys with a question now, so neener neener So here it is...I've been on the 30 mg of phen since October...and just in the past couple of weeks they have not been working as well and I am starving by mid-afternoon. I had a friend who had some 37.5 mg phen which I tried and I did not like it...my 30 mg did a better job even though they weren't working as well. Last week I saw my doctor and he gave me a prescription for 3 more months of the 30 mg. I saw a site online that said that they had 15 mg tablets. My original idea was to divide the tablet in half and take the half around lunch time and my 30 mg in the morning to see if that would control my hunger throughout the day. Well, the site that I ordered the phen from sent me an email saying that it was an error on their page, they do not have the 15 mg in tablets, only in capsules. So my question is....can I take the 15 mg capsule around my lunchtime? That would make a total of 45 mg which is only 7.5 mg higher than the 37.5 mg pill. Is anyone here taking higher than 37.5 mg of phen? If so, do you have any side effects. My next question is...since it is in a capsule...can I open the capsule up and just take half of it so that I am only taking 37.5 mgs? Would opening the capsule cause it to not work as well, or too quickly? Any ideas, suggestions, or comments please!
