    About sleeping...I can't answer that for you. Because I've had problems sleeping for about 4 1/2 years now...so the Phen doesn't make a difference to me. I take ambien to help me sleep and I'm fine.

    Sorry I couldn't help with the sleep thing!

    i take 1/2 of the 37.5 white w/blue specks only once in the morning. i've only been taking it for 2 days, but its been working for me. i've lost 5lbs so far. i workout 30 min on tradmill with my heart rate around 140-160 and 30 minutes on weight machines, low weight 45 reps. i do get hungry in the evening and so i eat. for me starving myself is counter-productive. i had steak and broccoli for dinner and when i want a snack i grab a small orange. i'm an emotional eater and am on this journey to transform the way i feel about food. i joke about being a 12-stepper taking it one day at a time. but as each day passes the cravings for my comfort foods decrease. eating is a neccessity and comes down to the choices we make.the real challenge will be weeks or months from now when i'm facing a crisis. will i slip back into old habits or stay the course? with you guys around for support i'm sure i'll be fine.

    I haven't had trouble sleeping but I have been going to bed really late because my husband gets off work late. I may have trouble sleeping when I get back into a regular schedule.

    I like that idea of eating breakfast and than later on in the day before lunch take 1/2. I too have been only taking 1/2 because I was sick and slowly getting back into the groove with it.
    I do too get hungry in the evening I may try that tomorrow.

    I have 1 question do you have trouble sleeping?
    Since I just started again I am having trouble.
    I know my body has to adjust to it again, since I just started but I thought if I do take it at 11:30 AM I may have trouble sleeping.

    I eat a small, nutritional breakfast every morning. Then, about 11:30 or Noon, I take 1/2 of a 37.5 mg. Phen. I wait about a half hour to an hour and then have lunch. I'm good to go until about 6:30 pm and then I have supper.
    I'm following the WeightWatchers Points plan.
    So far I've lost 25 pounds since October 8, 2005 (the day I started Phen)...and I haven't exercised yet!!! Gosh I've got to make time!!! But I don't sit around on my double bubble I do get things done. My house has never been so clean and organized!!! Energy is one of the greatest side-effects I've ever had!
    Good luck to all!

    I take half. Since I'm not a big breakfast eater, I take it later around 10-11am so that it lasts later in the day.

    When I was on Phen I only took half of a 37.5 in the mornings. I did get a bit hungry later in the evenings sometimes, but it wasn't impossible to ignore. You can look in my siggy for how much weight I lost and how fast.

    Good luck!

    I take half in the morning and half in the afternoon. It kills the side effects and prolongs the effectiveness for me.

    I was curious as to if man of you have had good experiences taking just half of the 37.5 mg white with blue specks. I was on phen in the summer taking the whole 37.5 and had alot of side effects from it. I just started taking it again this week. I seem to be doing fine with it. I do get a little hungrey late in the day but I am managing with that. I am just afraid I won't lose as much weight taking half. opinions?
