    I've seen that some of your stop your phen and then restart it. How long do you stop it for? Does it help when your body has gotten used to phen? My weight loss is majorly slowing down was wondering if it would help. Let me know if any of you do this and if it has helped. Thanks

    I was on Phen for 2 months and I stopped loosing the weight I was loosing at the begining which was like an average oflike 3 a week. I got to ap oint where I was only loosing 1 pound or so a week. I stopped last Friday and then started again Wednesday after I read a post on here that said it took 3 days for the Phen to get out of your system. When I started back I have lost 4 lbs and that was 2 days ago. I feel my appetite being suppressed and energy again.

    I have seen people quit for anywhere from 1-2 weeks at a time and then start for me it was like 1 week and then started again. I am getting closer to my goal, so I will proabably do the same in another month. Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

    mfriga- I have taken phentermine for about 4 months now. I have lost a total of 30 lbs. The last three weeks though I have been at a standstill - 142 lbs. I would like to take a break from the phen. I have read alot though about feeling very tired and moody. Did that happen to you? How long does it last? Should I stay off it for 3 to 4 days? Thanks for the help!

    Hey! I just took a break because I was stuck also. I wated 5 days and yes I hate to be the bad news lady but I was extremely tired. Not so much during the day but as soon as I got home from work I was a zombie. I didnt feel like I was really "all there" either, its like I couldnt concentrate very well. I started it again and it was great! Like the first time I took it. Well now I've been back on it for 6 days and its starting to fizzle on me again :miss_u: So I think I am going to find something else and maybe break for a little longer. Hope this didnt bring you down! Good Luck!

    Thanks for the info guys. I think I'm on the same track as mfriga. Good weeks I'd loose 3lbs and now only 1lbs a week. I'll give it a try for a week. I think I've got enough motivation to withhold from binging for a week. Thanks again!
