I've taken phen for 4 years(with breaks from it on my own). I've gained the weight back everytime I wasn't taking it so I understand you not wanting to go off it. I don't have any good arguments for you to use except to tell him your fear of gaining it back right now. If he still refuses then ask him what OTC diet pill he would recommend.
WHOA People..thanks for the replies, however I am NOT looking to obtain illegally. I just want to go into my docs office and have a couple of good reasons or examples to continue or take a one month break, not three. Maybe a better question would have been..How long have some been on phen? What does your docs say about length or breaks?
The other question was if I am not able to convince him, has anyone tried something over the counter that give simular results to phen?
although, not mad at cha for some who sent sites....
DEA Warning--Buying drugs online may be illegal and dangerous!
Federal law prohibits buying controlled substances such as narcotic pain relievers (e.g., OxyContin®, Vicodin ®), sedatives (e.g., Valium®, Xanax®, Ambien®), stimulants (e.g., phentermine, phendimetrazine, Adderall®, Ritalin®) and anabolic steroids (e.g., Winstrol®, Equipoise®) without a valid prescription from your doctor. This means there must be a real doctor-patient relationship, which by most state laws requires a physical examination. Prescriptions written by "cyber doctors" relying on online questionnaires are not legitimate under the law.
Buying controlled substances online without a valid prescription may be punishable by imprisonment under Federal law. Often drugs ordered from rogue websites come from foreign countries. It is a felony to import drugs into the United States and ship to a non-DEA registrant.
Buying drugs online may not be only illegal, but dangerous. The American Medical Association and state boards of medicine and pharmacy have all condemned the practice of cyber doctors issuing online prescriptions as unacceptable medical care. Drugs delivered by rogue websites may be the wrong drugs, adulterated or expired, the wrong dosage strength, or have no dosage directions or warnings.
First let me say I am SO glad I found this site, it has helped me a lot in this journey. You are all beautiful and supportive and the advise, information and friends here are a blessing. However, I am feeling a little nervous and scared. At the end of this month (July) I won't have phen perscribed to me anymore by my Doc of 4 years. I was pretty much a 100 pounds overweight and I went to him and asked for phen, he said lets give it a try. I went in once a month for blood pressure checks and new scripts.He said it is perscribed for 3 months then you take a 3 to 6 month break then MAYBE go on again. I have lost close to 30 pounds and I don't want it to stop. I have made a lot of lifestyle changes. I eat a lot differently, I realized I don't need all the crap I had been eating! I also started exercising. Then again I am 40 with a 3 year old and a 6 month old and the energy more than helps.
I have seen on here people have taken it for much longer than 3 months or skip one month and go back on.
So, my question is..
Does anyone have a good arguement for my doctor? To either continue or take a one month break not 3! Or has anyone found something over the counter that could take the place of phen? What makes me nervous is sometimes I skip a day and on that day I feel like I am starving to death! I'm sure I will catch some slack for asking this, but I don't want the weight to stop coming off or putting it back on!
