    Default Capsules vs. Tablets?

    Are there any differences in the Phen Capsules and Tablets? My mother in law gave me her leftover Phen capsules (30mg) to try and I've been using those for the past 10days-- lost almost 9lbs with them. I filled my doctor's prescription today and I got 37.5 mg Phen tablets-- these are white with little blue specks on them. Don't know if there will be any difference in results yet-- I'll take my first tomorrow.

    Have you tried different types of Phen and seen different results? Just wondering if I can expect the same out of these tablets.

    I was told that the capsules are time released and the tablets arent. My doc said he has seen better results with the 30mg capsules. I took the tablets 37.5 one and they gave me awful headaches like too much at once. BTW ladybug, I sent you a PM.

    OK, my question is who is the manufacturer for the capsules and what color are the ones that yall take ?
    ( My DR just gave me a ** for the 30mg capsule.)

    My doctor told me that he does not give people the tablets because you have to take them several tiems a day to have the same effect. the capsles are time released so that you stay not hungry all day not jsut for a few hours after you take them. I love the capsles-- I am never hungry until dinner time and even then i eat very little.
    Hope this helps

    Both Phentermine and Adipex-P are the immediate release formulas, designed to enter the bloodstream quickly.

    I dont count on phen to take my weight off, i count on me to be disciplined enough to work out and make the right food choices. Nothing is magic weight loss requires a healthy lifestyle and until a commitment is made to that you will always remain on a yoyo destined for failure.

    I take the generic - blue/white 30mg capsules, lannett 1310 is imprinted on them. This is my 5th week taking them and they still work ALL day for me. It looks like from what I read, people respond very differently to PHEN. Whether its the 15mg, 30mg or 37.5mg or the capsules or tablets, it varies from person to person. Finding the right one you can tolerate and works for you can be the challenge at first. Hope all goes well and the tablets work just as well for you.

    I think it's just one of those "Different strokes for different folks" kind of deals. I like tabs because I can break them in half and use some in the morning and some in the afternoon. It gives me the boost to get my afternoon conquered! Others like the capsule so they can forget about it and need that time controlled release. I think it's really about finding what works best for you and your body. We all know too well that one size doesn't fit all!
