    Unhappy mp 273 pills

    I started phentermine in the middle of april and I started out using Phentermine Qualist, they worked wonders. However, when I went back to get a refill from my doctor and she wrote it like before. The pharmacy gave me Phentermine Mutual. I really don't like these at all.

    They don't me energy, if anything I have enegery for a couple of hours. I do feel hungry a lot of time. Also I have not lost any weight yet since I started taking them which was 5/13.

    When I was on the Qualist I didn't feel hungry and I wasn't even tired until right before bed time. I didn't even yawn. I lost 15 lbs in a month.

    What is going on? I am eating the same and exercising a little bit more. I know people react differently but I just thought I wouldn't be this tired.

    Thanks in advanced.

    I think there IS a difference between the different generics even though they are supposed to all be the same. Part of it could be that your body is becoming used to the phen as well. If it's a tablet, maybe you could try breaking it in half and take half in the morning and the other half in the afternoon to help with the tiredness and hunger. Thirst can mimic hunger so make sure you are getting enough water in. Unfortunetly I get mine from the weightloss clinic so i don't even have the option of getting it from a different pharmacy to get a different manufacturer.

    I once filled a prescription for Phen at Walmart and those pills did nothing for me, nothing!!! Whereas the ones I have gotten from Walgreens worked. I took them back to Walmart and the pharmasist said there was nothing he could do they are different manufactures - I asked him if I could transfer my prescription to walgreens because I had a refill on there and he said no. I just found out that I can - so now I get another month without having to go back to the doc. But anyway, yes there is a difference
    BTW that is so cute how you said "I didnt even yawn" LOL

    When my doc wrote my prescription she told me that she would prefer me to use the name brand, as she's found that it works better than the generics. Luckily for me my insurance covers it... but i just wanted to let you know that apparently there IS a difference.

    My doc also told me if the generic stopped working she would give me the apidex because they work better. I only take a 1/2 right now so obviously they are working somewhat.

    I have been here for quite some time and have seen a lot of people complain when they switch to a different manufacturer, I wouldnt necessarily say that any brand is bad or anything..we are all different and react differently to drugs, but I believe that the first phen we try is the ones our bodies like best, we are used to taking that one. I tried switching before and nothing worked like the first one I used, qualitest, I even tried adipex and it was a waste of 75$...also when are you taking this new pill? Is it possible its a capsule that needs to be taken 2 hours before eating? I noticed that I have to take a capsule before eating because if I do it after eating I get hungry.

    Just a dumb question here, but how do you know what type of phen you have? I thought phentermine was phentemine? And which type of phen works better? Also, is the adipex outrageously more expensive to fill? (my INS doesn't pay)
