    Ugh, I just got mine refilled today and when she gave them to me I saw the Caraco on them and asked her about it. She said that they don't carry Amide anymore! Now I am really worried that these are going to ****. I think he will give me another refill but I really don't want to go a month on ****y pills that aren't as good.

    Hang on.... I just posted about how wretched I feel, and my pills are from Walgreens and are manufactured by Caraco.

    I used to get my Phen from a weight loss clinic here in town, and the pills looked quite different from the ones I got at Walgreens a couple of days ago. I felt great the two times before I was on Phentermine, and now I feel like crap.

    I wonder if there really IS a difference...I know that all the generics will have Phentermine 37.5mg in them, but the inactive ingredients (binders, etc.) may be what is making me feel so bad.

    Let me know what you think.

    If the script is bad then you probably should call a few other area pharmacies. Would it be worth a 20 minute drive to get the other stuff to you? If so then call every town around you until you find what you want. Or you can even ask at the pharmacy where you got it filled if that is the only manufacturer that they carry or if they can order different stuff if you give them a couple days advance notice. Be careful as they may charge you for that. I don't know. Other than that, i'm not sure what you can do.

    I was worried about it too. What happened with me, my doctor is like an hour and half away (where I used to live) and I got my script filled while I was there, I guess because I was excited, lol. Always went to Kmart. Then...when I got my new script filled I did it in my home town and went to walgreens. I was worried about the different mfg, but I decided to go ahead and see what it was like. Now I'm a lil worried about it.

    If it ****s, I dunno what to do. I mean I can call around and see if anyone has the ones made by mutual, but if it's from a pharmacy that doesn't accept that discount card I'll be screwed. Kmart wasn't on the pharmacy list I don't think.

    Anyone have any suggestions on what to do if this script ****s?

    There are a few that I know of..such as mutual, caraco, amide and qualistat (or something like that). And I think there are others.

    Well I use the generic too, but different places manufacture generic scripts. They all have to have the same active ingredient, but can put their own spin on it I guess (so to speak). You can look at your pill bottle and it'll tell you who made it.

    I have been wondering the same thing. I saw one post that someone did not like them. Anyone else know. I just took one this morning and it seems to be working fine.

    Default Mfg Caraco...???

    Has anyone had phen that was manufactured by caraco? My first set of pills were made by mutual. I got these from walgreens and dunno what to expect. Today is the first day for taking them so I guess I'll see how they work, but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any luck with them.
