Hi, I am a newbie here and just took my 1st dose of phentermine today (37.5 capsule) I am curious as to why your Dr. gives you 1/2 30 mg. and 1/2 37.5. And WOW!!!, 24 pounds in 4 weeks.... That is fantastic! Congratulations. Any suggestions for a newbie?
My doctor will only start you off on the 30mg capsules. Mine are yellow and grey. Took them for 4 weeks and lost 25lbs. At 4 weeks I have now been prescribed half 30mg and half 37.5mg yellow capsules. I have just got to end of week 5 and have lost a further 5lbs. I have to do this for 4 weeks. I will then be on 37.5mg until I have 10lbs to go and then will be weaned off by going back to half and half, then 30mg again.
I'm on the 30mg and have no problems. I started 12-10-08 and have lost 15.5 so they are working good for me. I still have no appetite and I am able to curb/control the cravings.

I lost more weight on the 30mg than I have since I've been on the 37.5mg. Maybe because they were capsules and time released...Who knows. They'll do their part as long as you do yours.

I think they work well too.I also take(well on my last prescription now)the blue and white timed release capsules-30 mg.I have lost 150 lbs since May 31,2007 .
I also take the 30 mg blue and white capsules. The first time I was on phen i took the same thing and lost 25 lbs in 3 months with no exercise. This time around, so far I have lost 7 lbs in a week. I think that the 30 mg work just as well as the others!! You will do great!!!
Start Wt. 1/1- 162
Goal wt- 125
Yes it will work.... I take 18.75mg a day ... I have already lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks......GOOD LUCK!!!!!!
I've been on the 30 mg Eon Yellow phentermine pills for 3 weeks and lost 10 lbs! Much easier than the 13 I lost in 3 months while starving and being miserable. I still have trouble sleeping, so I skip it at least once a week. This realy helps. Even when I skip it I can keep with my diet. Good luck!
I use the 30mg blue and white with no problems. good luck
I am on the 30mg phen. It works well for me, I've been steadily losing weight each week - about 2-3 lbs, and I like it because unlike some of the things I've been hearing about the 37.5mg, it doesn't keep me up all night or make me jittery. It controls my appetite all afternoon and evening long, but I still am able to eat a small dinner. But my cravings for any extras are long gone. The kind I take are blue and white capsules and they are time released so that is why they work for many hours. I wish you the best of luck, let us know how this dosage works for you!.
I just had my 1st appointment with my DR. I planned all week what to say to him and tell him that I wanted a prescription. But when I asked for the 37.5 - he then ended writing a prescription for 30mg.
I don't think he wanted to prescribe this to me but he did so I don't want to push it but now I'm worried because I see that most people have the most sucess with the 37.5. Has anyone done well with the 30mg? Does it work the same?
Please help. I'm so ready to start but I want it to work...
