    Never heard of it! My doctor keeps a close check on me. BP, heart, blood work, etc. I feel good about being under the care of a doctor while on phen. I wish everyone else had this reassurance! I can't believe there are Doctor's that won't prescribe phen to help those who really need to lose weight and be there to monitor their patients.

    P.S. Now they are saying that Aleve may cause heart problems..........go figure someone always has to come up with something to print! Some are true and some are just someone trying to come up with something to say to pad their pockets. My opinion only!

    Just saw my doc on Thursday and she suggested I take Phen every other day once I have the regimen going. Not sure why.....she said it wears off and the best thing to do is to stretch it out and use it when you need it, but don't rely on it to make you lose weight. Have to do exercise and moderate portions, which are the key to safe weight loss. ????

    But even though I have higher than normal blood pressure, she told me it will be ok and it's safe to take for the next few months.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the compliments!!!! I loved my wedding..... it was the best day of my life.... In those pictures I would have to say I was about 130 pounds or so...... Believe it or not, my dress was a size 12 !!!! They wanted to give me a 16 when I ordered it.... I said no way, I am going to lose more weight , so I ordered a 12 instead, glad I did too, because even the 12 was a bit big and had to be taken in, except on my chest my regular clothing size now, and at the time of the wedding was a 6 or 8.I am closer to 8 now,but my stretch 6 jeans still fit. But i am short, 5'3 ,so a size 3/4 would be ideal.
    Anyways, I kinda pigged out on my honeymoon, in Bali... I ate rice and chicken satay with peanut sauce everyday for 2 weeks straight while we were there, I guess that will do it. When I came back I was 138ish, and then with the holidays and my Christmas Cookie baking, well I got up to 140. However I have already gotten back down to 137... I lose very slow. So it will probably take me 6 weeks to get back to 130. My ultimate goal is to be 120 or maybe even 115??? I think the last time I weighed that I was 11 years old!!!!

    I believe Phentermine on it's own does not cause problems but people were mixing it with something else (it was called Phen-Fen) and that was what caused the problems.

    My Dr has been prescribing it for over 20 years and has never had any problems with her patients.
