    If you guys are really working out like crazy, you might be gaining muscle and losing fat. I would get taped to see how much fat you've lost.

    The weight loss doctor i go to perscibes two a day for almost everyone. I thought that was a lot. I was seeing my family doctor and getting them for the first six weeks and he only gave me one a day and i lost 20 ibs. Two a day is just too much for me. So i always 30 extra at the end of the month. I have just been outting them up so i can have back up if i ever need them again.

    I have found that when I take a whole pill, I don't feel as much effect as when I break it in half. I am taking generic 37.5 mg and instead take half a pill and then half a pill. I don't take my first half until around 10:30 or 11 AM, because I'm not usually hungry in the morning so I "save it". My issues are afternoon and evening. Then around 2, I take the 2nd half. It peaks by 7 pm and I sleep fine and have energy to do all the "get the kids to bed" crap at 8-9 pm instead of passing out the second I close my eyes to read with them or lay down and snuggle. Today, I took a whole and it didn't feel as strong, I thought I would be MORE jittery or something but I wasn't. I get a little rush from the half pill, maybe it releases differently. Sometimes, I don't even take the first half until noon if I am busy and then I only take half.

    I have lost 15 lbs since starting around a month ago, so I am losing and barely working out. I still eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, just way less grazing.

    I take one 37.5 a day and have been on them for 14 days now. I'm 5'3" and I now weigh 163. I have lost 17 pounds since starting Phen. I couldn't imagine taking more than that dosage a day. I really wouldn't try it unless your doctor said it was fine. I lost 11 pounds in the first 6 days, none for 4 days, and then I lost 6 more. I think it just depends on what you eat and how active you are. This dosage works fine for me so far.

    A year ago i was taking two a day and became obsessed with the scale...not a good idea because i ran out of the 30 day supply and ended up going through withdrawls! no joke so i would suggest if you decide to take two please contact your physician first! goodluck

    Dang. Don't I feel like a baby. I took one, and then took another (forgetting that I already had. I stuck my finger down my thoat as soon as I realized I'd done it.

    Some people are prescribed this way? If I would have known that, I wouldn't have done that!

    Geesh, and I HATE getting sick!

    think about it this way, 1
    you would go through phen way too fast, 2x a day would be gone in 15days.

    also as long as your appetite is supressed even a bit its still working

    I f you take more too soon your body can get immune even faster.

    my dr would have me take 37.5 in the am then 15 mg in the evening.

    The nurse also told me to try drinking some caffine when I feel the effects going down since phen supposingly has caffine it it.

    also try drinking more water for some reason that seems to activate it more.

    Just dont take 2 at one time unless your dr tells you too, we have to remever that is what happened with phen phen and ephedra.

    consider other options before that too like acv or b-12 vitamins first.

    I was wondering the same thing the other day, My doc prescribed UP TO 3 - 30 mg capsules a day! I have been doing one but noticing the effects are as much after only a week.

    Dr put me on 2 of the 30mg capsules a day. No matter what time I take the second one I cannot sleep. So I've only been taking one at around 8 or 9 am. I feel the effects of it and I think it's enough right now for me.

    My doctor put me on two 37.5 mg a day . One in the morning and one at 2pm. I did it for two days and had to stop because after i would take the second one i would feel very faint when i stood up. I thought i was going to for sure pass out a couple of times.

    I was just wondering about the same thing.This is only my second week on phen and I really don't feel the effects anymore.The only thing that it kinda helps with is getting me through a longer workout and maybe curbing my appetite a little in the morning,but that's it

    I'm getting frustrated now b/c the weight is not coming off fast enough.I workout at least 4-5 times a week for at least 45mins to 1.5 hours and eat pretty healthy.I think I've dropped about 6lbs total and half of that was in the first day.WTH is going on??

    I'm thinking about taking 1 in the am and maybe half in the pm.Think this might help?

    Bella, 37.5 each? If so, how come you takes two?? I take one 37.5. I feels it is alittle weaker. I could use a stronger dose then? (talk to my dr of course in one more month) It is been 3 weeks I takes phen.

    My dr had me start taking two a few days ago (37.5 mg). Not at once though. I take one in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.

    No, I haven't two at once, but my doctor did tell me yesterday to take 1 pill at 9am, and another one 2pm. How come you want to take them at the same time:?
