What does your pill look like?
I just finished my first week and while I lost 5.8 pounds I was hungry alot. Part of me thinks maybe I didnt get the right medicine. It is supposed to be phen 37.5. It is a white capsule with blue dots. Mine looks different then online because my dots are only in the middle of the pill, not all over it like the pictures I saw. Do i have the right thing?

I got them from a doctor, but honestly I think he is a quack. He brags how he has 10,000 patients and I saw him give the pills to someone who only weighed 113 pounds. I went to him becasue he is so much cheaper then anyone else and it was the only way I could afford it. Now I am not so sure. I am hungry all the time, but think I am only getting about 1000 calories a day. I am drinking a ton of water, but maybe I am just not eating enough.

I am right around the same weight as you and my dr started me out on the 37.5's. They may not be strong enough for you and my dr has me doing no less than 1200 calories a day, so you may be hungry because of not enough calories.

Do you have a pharmacy near by you could take it in and ask if they could tell you if there real just say they are from a weightloss clinic but you are not sure they are real im sure they would take a look at them ... omg 113 person why would they be taking them that just crazy and scary ... but also it could be you cal intake ..this is what i do and has been working for me maybe it will work for u ..i eat 1200 cals a day when i am not working out and 1400 when i am working out and 100oz of water a day i also have six sm meals aday so my body always has something to burn and im never hungry and switching the cals keeps your body from getting use to the cal intake ... hope this will help =)

Yes, they look exactly like that.
March 26th, 2010, 06:12 PM
That is part of the problem with Phen being so easily prescribed (abused)...you have people who are starting out with only 10 or 20 pounds to lose, and usually the weight loss clinics are just handing out pills to make money not caring if they do any kind of damage to the person who takes them. The way my doctor put it was these are meant for people who are in the obese range, not for someone who is just generally 20 pounds overweight, and wants a quick fix.

I just checked my Phen pills...they don't say Adipex on them but they look like the ones above....They are M2273's and mine work just fine for me. The first few days I took them I had increased energy and no appetite.
My specks are more in the middle as well. So I think you got the real stuff...Let me ask you this...is it bitter tasting...My definitely are bitter....

My phen pills do not look like either of those pictures. I got mine from a pharmacy. They are white with blue specks. On one side they have a v and the other side there is a 50/30 the bottle says for:Adipex-P 37.5MG TAB Phentermine TAB 37.5MG

until i read this post i never really paid too much attention to the type of Phentermine I was taking, and I had no idea there are that many different forms out there. I'm taking these ones, come to find out they are generics.... they are working very well for me so far. But i will be finding out why this office i go to is giving out generics instead of the "real" thing. I wonder what the difference would be generics vs real... has anyone taken both?
March 28th, 2010, 05:16 PM
Ash724 i am on the same ones and when i got them filled at pharmacy i asked the pharmacist if there is a big differnce between Generic and Name brand she said there is not a difference at all except in the price ..Which is probably why they are giving Generic due to the cost of name brand ..i havent had a problem with the generic pill at all still has same effects 3 weeks later except for a lil less energy but been taking muti vitamin and seems to be doing the job ... best of luck to all of you on your weight loss journey =)

Wow, there are so many different kinds of Phen I didn't even know about! Yellow pills? Mine are the 37.5 smooth white with blue speckles all over, I've been on them for 1 week and 3 days and have lost 7lbs! How long has everyone else been on? I attribute my rapid weight loss to much stress and not eating much, which I am definitely working on. My job is very rapidly paced and I literally sometimes have not even a minute to take a sip of water! It's horrible! I've almost fainted 3x already. So my point is that 5 lbs in a week is actually pretty good, especially if you're eating plenty and and drinking tons of water. I also felt hungry this whole past week but when I would sit down to eat something, I would take a couple of bites and gag. Hang in there, you're doing it right... just try to cut your portions down if you do snack alot or make some protein shakes or something. Keep us posted!

There are so many different companies that make phentermine/adipex they come in capsules/ pills. Mine are the white pills shaped like a football with the blue specs, like showin in the picture that was posted above.
March 31st, 2010, 04:48 PM
I have had several different looking of pills for phen, adipex, etc and my never had the blue specks only towards the center. I found that depending on where I would take my scrip, would determine which type of pill I received. I now go to a weight loss clinic and I have the white pills with the blue specks and when it wasn't working as well for me I told the doc and they also gave me a second pill - as a boster - that I take in the afternoon to help phen work better. I can't take it after 2:30 pm or I'll be up all night.
If you are concerned about the pills you get from your doc, find another one.
It's just odd that he's giving phen to someone who weighs 113 lbs.
I hope this helps.

30 mg time released
So now I feel like I'm the only one that is taking the 30 mg time released capsule. Mine is solid yellow, and seems to be working fine. I started on 03/19/10 and have lost 8.5 pounds. The only problem I'm having, is my late night craves, but I found that if I eat a low calorie popsicle, it satisfies the crave and makes my dry mouth feel great lol! Good luck everyone!

Oh My Phen Tablets are PINK and round, smooth (no markings) and flat. I cant find them on any Pill Identifier on the Computer. But they do the job. I go to a Health/weight clinic to get them. But I do no of two over people that go to different health clinics around England that get given exactly the same pill.
And they are 30mg.
I was started on 15mg and they were the same as the capsuals that are on the identifier on this site. :-)
