    Luvlex...

    Dr B did not make you lose weight, YOU DID THAT..and you can continue to do that until you find a doctor to get phen again.............I would look for a medical weight loss center, call different doctors and ask if they do that or if they can refer you to someone that does......there should be someone closer than an hour or two away!

    Just don't get discouraged and eat because of this! continue to eat well and exercise..continue to try. PHen is just part of the equation, it isn't the whole formula....

    Tell me about it...sigh. Her doctor info would be fabulous. I don't know where auburn is really, but I am really good at directions, so I'll justt mapquest.

    I live off base. We bought a house off of 11th, between kitsap way and wheaton near naval avenue. I know where you are talking about though, I was just yard sailing this morning saw it.

    Nope, not I...don't know nuthin' bout birthin no babies or no stackers....
    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!

    She's the first person I asked. She wouldn't even discuss it. They don't prescribe it or carry it, end of story and then proceeded to try and push lap band on me. Which I don't even qualify for, not even at my highest weight. It was ridiculous. I really think I'm just going to start cold calling on monday lmao. I might start with a local bariatric Dr and ask for referrals.

    And holy crap KitsapLady, that hgc link you sent me is $35 a WEEK just for the shots lol. Didn't see anything about phen on there, looks like they are trying to push their own appetite suppressent .

    Here is a Tacoma doctor who does hCG (Which I use).

    They almost always prescribe phen with it at the start.

    Hi, I am a newbie. I did find a clinic in Beverly Hills, CA that states that they do "over the phone" consultation. I did not use them but it might be worth a shot to call them: http://www.delightmedical.com/index/xpj67

    Good Luck!

    My regular Primary Dr. wouldn't even talk about weight loss medications with me. I was at my Gynocologist and I told her I was interested in Phen and she said she knew a Dr. that had a general practice but also had a weight loss clinic in her office. My insurance ****s so I had to switch Primary Dr's. I took a chance and switched to this Dr. my Gyno was referring to. When I called to make an appointment I simply asked if the Dr. prescribed weight loss medications. They said yes. They are very kind. Her whole staff is actually very kind. I am very lucky. Good luck. I hope you find a good Dr. There has to be someone, somewhere wanting to help you!

    wow. itzbabyphat! i love that you emailed your doctor! I got so used to Dr's saying no way and making me feel ashamed for not being able to do it on my own, but you are right! they should care enough about their patients to give the help we need! obesity is a disease, i tell people its like telling a drug addict they can only have a tiny bit of their drug of choice every day and that they will soon be better and their problems will go away, but that person just wants more one taste and they have to have more... for me the drug is food.



    I think i lost my mind struggling to loose my extra weight.

    My MD originally told me that he does not prescribe phen, I left his office feeling down and decided to sen him an email that basically said if you dont not care enough about my health, please refer me to a doctor that does. The next morning he had called in the prescription. Keep your head up and just keep trying eventually you will get it.

    I'm close to you, if I can be of help let me know. I tried what worked once before and didn't work the time after.
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed. We'll see when and if...

    I just now put some unwanted items up on Craigs List... One item just sold.

    Craigs List is a good way to clean out and make a little extra cash. Before I moved here I had a garage sell and advertised on Craigs List, I made 300 in just VHS Videos...

    I LOVE Craig's List!

    It's 50 miles to Port Townsend.... I Mapquested it...

    Thanks thin4good. Where Bremerton is, I have to cross a body ofwater to pretty much go anywhere. This requires either a ferry or a bridge. So even though technically speaking, seattle is only 14 miles away, with the amount of time you have to get to the ferry to wait and the actual crossing time, it takes more than an hour and a half to get there. But you did get me thinking, that if I am willing to drive an hour and spend $200 for an appointment, maybe I should go a little further in distance if it is cheaper. I guess I will have to call around and see what these places have to offer.

    Blech....I tried for 9 months to lose with diet and exercise. Gym 4 days a week, with a trainer, no soda, no fast food, no chocolate and lost a whopping 10 pounds...in 9 months. And didn't really lose much in inches either, so it wasn't that. My body is a strange one.

    Yes, see if they can refer you to an obesity doc if they don't treat that themselves..I'm sure they will understand that by "treat" you mean with medication but don't come right out and ask for ph en, then you sound like a druggie and they won't want you as a patient.

    Being a Military Town, many here are from far off, in places where doctors prescribing phen is common.

    How about that approach? i.e.

    Hi, I'm new here, and don't want to mess up my my weight loss journey. I'm looking for a new doctor who is willing to help me by prescribing phen, does Dr. So and So see obesity patients? If so I'd like to make an appt. and if not can you reccomend another doc?
