    i tried this and I actually felt no difference taking a half pill or a full it didnt' work for me.
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    I do the same thing. I would just play around with it and see what works best. I take 1/2 a pill a day occasionally.

    I can smell 155!!!!!!!!!!!!:spider_red:

    I found that taking the full dosage every day had a very negative effect on my bank account LOL. So i started alternating dos. and it worked fine.

    Actually this time around I'm doing just that, except I alternate mine every other day. I take a full dose then half dose and keep that going. I only change back to full dose each day if I'm anticipating an event where I need extra control or TOM is here. Other than that I do full and then half. I do this also to save me money, as it stretches my prescription a lot longer. My advice to you is to try out your idea with doing the full dose on the weekends and then half on the weekdays and see if that works for you. One thing I've learned is that you have to do trial and error to see what works best for you and your lifestyle. Sometimes the Dr's regimen may not work for you. If you try a few things out you'll find what works best for you. Good luck with it!!

    Default Alternating doses?

    Has anybody had success taking phentermine in alternating doses? For example, taking the full dose on the weekends when hunger is more prevalent and taking half dose during the week when you're busier?

    I just seem to have more side effects on the full dose and have more trouble with insomnia and focusing on things on the full dose.
