    Van, how many calories are you taking in each day? Many here suggest not dipping below 1000 cal/day, and aiming more for 1200/day. Going below these numbers can make your body go into a starvation mode where it burns muscle for fuel instead of fat, if it burns much of anything at all. It will slow down weight loss efforts and really screw up the body composition to do this. Are you exercising too? Eat something, even if you can only manage small snacks spread throughout the day, and get moving somehow.

    AS for hunger, some here are breaking a pill in half; others drink 1/2 their weight in water to help fill the stomach, or supplement their diet with 50mg of 5-htp twice a day, or all three.

    I take my phen around 10 am every day, drink 140 oz of water, and started taking the 5-htp at night and slowly working up to 50mg at night and 50mg in the morning with the phen. It's a natural supplement, and there's some good info on it on the 'my experience with phentermine' board, posted by dumbfox.

    This is really good information. I just started Phen 37.5 (2 days). I was thinking maybe I needed to give it a few days before I started to panic. I still have hunger "I think" or maybe I'm just in the habit of eating. I'm sure I haven't eaten 1200 calories in these two days combined. Drinking lots of water 120oz per day at the least. I have a horrible taste in my mouth and drink constantly. Good info Nynavae, thanks!!

    I was using phentermine a couple of months ago, and found that I was starving! Hunger pains, cravings for food... you name it. So I quit. Today I started back taking them. 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill in the afternoon. I'm very thirsty also, so I figure I'll fill up more on water than anything else and see how it goes this time. Thanksgiving added some weight, and I can just imagine the damage Christmas could do if I don't take them, lol. We'll see if this mind over matter stuff works for me.

    This my 5th day on the pill..I've lost 3lbs but I've noticed the pills I have now phentermine 37.5(E16)are not as effective as the 1s I had before.Some pills are weaker than others..it may just be the pills you have.You can look the pills you have up to read reviews and compare
