    Who takes the name brand Adipex & who takes the generic Phen? The reason I'm asking is because I'm on 30 mg of Phen (blue/clear pills) & haven't noticed a change in energy or appetite really. I'm thinking of going to the stronger 37.5 mg but if I do I want to go name brand to make sure I'm getting the best results.

    Anyone notice a difference between the two? I'd like input before I spend a fortune on name brand. Thanks!

    I took generic phen 37.5 for a month, and it worked marvelously! It curbed my cravings in a major way! Make sure you are taking it on a completely empty stomach. Mine didn't work unless I did that. This means at least 2 hrs. after a meal and at least 30 min. before a meal. Goodluck!

    I take 37.5 generic phen. Yesterday marked my 1st week on it & I lost 8lbs in just that week. Today I weighed myself & found that I lost another lb! IT WORKS! I get a prescription through my doc for Adipex-P & opted for the generic from Walmart due to the price difference. My pill is a small oval shape, white with tiny blue specs. Can be cut in half if desired (I don't though). "Ditto" on taking it on an empty stomach, first thing in the morn & I have a tiny snack about a 1/2 hour after taking it. Works all day so long as I keep up the proper snacking/meals/water.
    Desparate!

    Hiya! My good friend is a clinical pharmacist and I asked him about generic meds. HE told me that when a company makes and distributes anything ** they are under alot of pressure from the FDA to get the "recipe" for the drug correct. It would be as if you made a name brand chocolate cake and then the offbrand made one. There would have to be the same amount of eggs, oil and water DOWN TO THE DROP the same amount of flour down to a pinch-the generic and the name-brand must be EXACTLY the same or the FDA wont approve it. Also the outside of the pill is a reflection of the company, its the stuff on the inside that matters to the FDA. So save yourself some money!!!

    Ditto!

    I used the blue/clear pills 5 years ago with not much success. My girlfriend was using 30 mg yello and loosing at twice the speed of me. I switched and BOOM!!! So when I started again I went straight for the yellow again. Have to say 3 days and 3 pounds, keeps me motivated!! Good luck.....

    lori_g_70, what is the name of the yellow pill? Is it just a different dosage of phentermine or is it a different pill all together? I was taking the 37.5 mg , white oval with blue specs, which worked great, but lost most of my hair after 3 months.
    Thanks
