    Default Can you take phen for more than 3 months?

    Hi all, i started phen and i have just completed my first month. i have lost 7 lbs so far and am happy with my success so far. i have been only taking half of the 37.5 prescribed to me. i was wondering if since Im breaking them up in half can i prolong the 3 months to 6 months? My july goal is 10lbs.
    Thanx in advance

    Congrats! & It just depends what you and your doctor think is best for you...I just started my 3rd month and my doc ddnt say anything about a break...maybe during my next visit she will..idk. Your so close to your goal weight that It will take a little longer than a heavier woman to lose...so just be patient, you should be able to do 10lbs for July if you work hard enough just stay strong!

    They say you shouldn't, because the drug is addictive. Plus, you will build a tolerance to it after a few months and reach a plateau. I don't know what your doctor would advise, but I'm guessing that by the end of month 3, if you don't stop taking them, you may want to up your dosage to an entire pill to break through the plateau based on your body's natural tendency to build a tolerance with that 1/2 pill.

    In some states it's illegal to perscribe Phen for more than 3 months out of the calendar year. (Kansas and Ohio being the two that I know for sure) - However, as you look around on this site some people will be on 3 months and off 3 months. Other 5 and 5. It really depends on what you and your doctor decide is best, but keep in mind that they are addictive. If your doctor decides you should take a break after the 3 months, then you should probably do that.
