    Default 30mg capsule vs 37.5 tab

    I took phen june to august 2010. I was on a yellow 30mg phen capsule. Just got a script yesterday to start phen 37.5mg. Anyone taken both an notice any difference. Does one work slightly better than the other or what? I assume since its a higher dose by the numbers maybe its a little stronger but I could be totally wrong about that. Thanks for any help.

    I guess no one knows since no one is answering. Guess I will find out when I start the pills tomorrow morning.

    I don't know anything about how well the 30 mg work. I have only been on the 37.5 mg. I like the 37.5 b/c it is a tablet and I have to split mine in half. Take one half in the morning the other right before lunch.

    As for taking phen with wellbutrin I don't know why that would be. Wellbutrin is normaly used to treat depression, it has also been used to help stop smoking. I had a Dr yrs ago prescribe me wellbutrin b/c he determined that I was "depressed" I actually gained weight during that time and was told that was a side effect. So it makes me wonder why they would prescribe that with a weight loss medicine.

    I did the 30's for a couple months, didn't do anything to curb my hunger. Been on 37.5's since December. Doing ok. some days better than others. Had a really bad 2 wks due to something I was ingesting that I didn't realize was triggering my sugar cravings. I did a MAJOR dive until I stopped drinking the darn stuff that was triggering it. 2 days later, cravings under control, go figure. So basically back to where I was in January and have to relose it. Anyway, I'm getting off track... The 37.5 are better for me. Some days I need 1.5 My hunger seems to be mostly AFTER lunchtime, starting early afternoon. I've varied when I take meds, from 7am, waiting hr to eat, to 2:30 in the afternoon. Most of the time I take the meds at the 2:30 point, then I don't get the 3:30-4 wanting to snack break, controls my dinner portions, and eliminates my bad choices on snacks in the evening. Now I grab a piece of fruit if I really need something late at night. Decided after last 2 wks to cut out all sugar/artificial sweeteners, and caffeine (was still drinking tea/coffee in am, so didn't help as made phen wear off earlier anyway). I never was a big soda drinker so now stuck to waters and fresh squeezed juices.

    I am not 100% sure on this but I believe the 30 mg capsules are extended release meaning they work all day and the 37.5 mg tabs are just stonger but dont last as long.

    I have been taking the 30mg blue and clear capsules for almost 3 months and havent been hungry since day one. =)
