    Default manufacturer?

    This is my 1st month on phentermine 37.5 (I started taking them 5/13) and I am not sure that I feel any different taking them. I have lost 6.2 lbs, but I have been really strict on my calories and have been exercising almost daily. I still feel hungry alot!

    I had my ** filled at our walmart pharmacy ($25). The manufacturer of the med I received is qualitest...imprint 5030 on them. I have been reading that manufacturer isnt a good quality med. I looked at walgreens.com and it says that they sell phen from the manufacturer kvk tech (I think the imprint on them is k25). I am not sure how much it is there.

    Has anyone used phen from both of these manufacturers....which one worked better for you??

    Thanks

    I know it does make a difference!!! I get mine at Walmart for almost $30. I went to Costco's since they are like $13 there but I felt like I wasn't even taking anything. I didn't know that would really make such a difference, I thought they would still be the same but they are not!! When I get them from the Walgreen's by my work, I am speeding all over the place!! They are too strong. Weird, but that is why I stick to my main Walgreens since I know how I feel with them.

    Was the walgreens expensive? I have gotten my last 2 filled at walmat I havent had any issues with the pill. I just drop off the script while I shop but I have a Walgreens right down the street from me. My insurance actually covers 80 % of the script

    My insurance this year does not cover it so it is about $30 at my Walgreen's. Do you know how much it is before your insurance at Walmart?

    My doctor told me when he wrote me the script that alot of people have been complaining about Walmart supplying their phen. He said they had alot of patients that have used Walmart for a long time and they used to be pretty good, but noticed their pills changed in effectiveness and even in color. He called Walmart to find out if they had been doing something different and sure enough, they started using a different manufacturer. He advised me to either to use the local Kroger/Dillons pharmacy or a couple of others. He said he was also having a problem with the local Walgreens pharmacy refusing to fill scripts after 3 months of use and telling patients very negative things about their health. So I don't have a whole lot of choices around here lol but that guy at our local Walgreens should be fired.

    Hi. I'm new here and this is actually my first post I have the SAME pills, a scored tablet with 50 and 30 on it and a V on the other side. I've never taken anything to lose weight before. I was worried about all this "energy" I was supposed to get that it would be too dangerous on my heart, etc. I'm a nurse so my silly mind always goes to worst possible scenarios, lol. Anyways, I couldn't sleep the first few days, but then...NOTHING! I have NO extra energy. In fact I can lay down and take a nap after taking it if I had the time! What's the deal with these pills? I get them from a weight loss clinic from a dr.
