    Default Dosage

    My doctor put me on 15 mg of phentermine. I have been reading and see that most people seem to be on 30 mg or 37.5 mg. Is anyone else out there on 15 mg and it is working or should I ask my doctor if he will up my dose?

    I take 15mg too --- its working for me. I think sometimes docs prescribe a low dose to start out as to not shock ur system and maybe if there is a history of high BP (my case). I believe when I go back tomorrow he will prescribe me 30mg and have me alternate between the 2, like 15mg one day and then 30mg the next, etc... I think eventually ur body builds a resistance to the lower dose and they slowly increase it.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you for responding. I think I will call him at about week 3 and ask him if he will up me to 30 mg. I hope he will...I don't know why he started me at 15 mg...we didn't talk about that at all. If he is willing to give me 15 though, there shouldn't be any reason he wouldn't give me 30...?

    Do you have to ask for the pills you can cut in half and take half in the morning and half at noon? Mine are capsules that I got.

    Thanks!

    I told him I was hungry in the afternoon - he still didn't give me the one that u can split. He gave me the 30s and has me starting it tomorrow and then back the 15 the day after then back to the 30. He also told me to have a snack mid-morning even when I'm not hungry at all. He said that eating every 2-3 hours will train ur body to burn correctly.
