Thanks ladies. I wasn't able to walk in yesterday so i'ts monday till i see him.
I had a similar issue, my doc didn't want to give it to me at first, he wanted me to do it on my own. He used the "its genetic" excuse, but I had a pic of the fam on my cell and he had to back down and said he'd give me 2 months and then I was on my own... this was last year when I was on phen. (my family is soooo tiny, my mom still wears my clothes from jr high!! my brother is one of those that eats like 4k calories and still looks like an ethiopian... grrr) So, anyways, I too went to find a clinic that would prescribe it once I started back this year.
Honesty is always best, they most he can say is no. If you tell him that you are already takening them and he sees that you ar healthy he may say go ahead .ITs worth a try .

I just asked my Doc last week when I was there for being sick. He had never heard of it even. He wrote it down and said he would do some research on it and send me a script, which I got the next day (small town clinic even.) I did tell him that I want to be healthy, am trying to quit smoking and I know that would not help my weight loss goals but will help with health issues.
I agree. You can also mention that your previous doctor had prescribed it, and that you felt it was working well. Good luck.

Ok so my doc who prescribes phen is retiring and transferred her patients to this other doc who doesn't prescribe phen. I'm super pissed b/c I'm running out. My doc in the beginning didn't want to give it to me because she said I wasn't really considered obese. So I found a weight loss clinic that precribes it. I'm going to try and wlk in tomorrow or thusday. My question is , How do I ask a doc for Phen? I'm just nervous that he will feel I don't need it. I'm also going to start the B-12 shots.
