    Default what to do when it stops working

    I have been on Phentermine for almost 3 months. I had lost 22 pounds, which I was happy about but now the Phentermine seems to have stopped working. My appetite has come back (with a vengeance!) and all I want to do is eat all the time. Help!! I'm taking the pills as always but since about Feb 6, they just don't seem to work. and I've gained back 5 lbs.
    Began phentermine November 25, 2009.

    Look up Phen-Pro on the internet. Prozac is prescibed with Phen because Phen stops working after 6 to 12 weeks.

    It may. Everyone is different. It is worth a shot to see if it works. Ask your DR.

    Make sure you're eating enough, eating lots of protein, and drinking enough water (.5oz of water for every pound of weight; ex. 200lb person should drink 100oz water). If you really think Phen has stopped working, stop taking it for a week or two.

    Oh no no no no....prozac does not make you laid back when taken with Phen. It amazingly does the exact opposite. Doctors can prescribe prozac with phen because it makes Phen WAY more strong. i started taking the combo right before I got pregnant and had to stop last year. It really does work. If your doc doesn't want to do it then you can just take a one - two week break
