    You can just watch what you eat to lose weight the only thing Phen does to people is make it so that their not hungry all the time.It doesn't work that much for me but than again im on the lowest dose so who knows.

    I experienced a similar situation to yours...

    I gained 25 lbs in about a three month time span...was still doing things the same with diet/exercise, but couldn't seem to figure out why I was gaining weight.
    I had changed BCP's and thought that might be the problem...but I was always craving sweets...and I would have panic attacks if I couldn't find sugar!!!

    After doing a lot of research, I found a great nutritionist who had my cortisol levels checked...and I found out that I have Adrenal Fatigue. My adrenal glands are not producing enough cortisol...thus making me gain weight during stressful times and causes my extreme sugar cravings.

    Your adrenal glands produce cortisol...and cortisol provides the body the ability to deal with stress (fight/flight)...when your cortisol levels are depleted, then you stop dealing with stress and start packing on the lbs.

    Though Phen can help with aiding in weight loss, it's only temporary...if in fact you do have adrenal issues, the only way to change this is to develop "stress management" and do yoga (things to "calm" the mind)

    Anyway, I digress...It sounds to me like you might have AFS. You should ask your doctor to test your cortisol levels first before you start looking for phen...
    Also, did the doctor say anything about your glucose levels? Has the doctor ever discussed diabetes with you?

    I really wish you the best....and a lot of weight loss clinics are not very expensive, depending on what region of the country you live in!

    Hang in there!!!

    I agree, just call around. I spend a lot of money for my clinic, I'd love to have that money to spend elsewhere, but I bit the bullet and have made other adjustments in my life... it's worth it to me to do this safely. You really need to be under a doctors care to do this safely... As for ephedra, it really jacked my heart up pretty good and I still suffer effects from it... stay away from it. Take a B complex for energy, take chromium and a good multi, increase your water intake and get plenty of exercise... that should really help with your appetite until you can find a doctor or a clinic.

    FOR THOSE WANTING/NEEDING TO FIND A DR. OR WEIGHT LOSS CLINIC:
    1. Call around to GYN's/Internal Medicine Dr's/Bariatric Dr's/Weight Loss Clinics
    2. If you can't find a Dr or Weight Loss Clinic in you area, then start a thread asking if anyone on here lives in your area that could help. DO include where you live so we'll know...DON'T post it in someone else's thread because we may not see it.
    3. If you find a dr...make an appt....keep the appt...make sure you ask ?s about phen
    4. If the dr gives a prescription for phen....fill the script...take the script as directed

    FOR THOSE WANTING TO PURCHASE PHEN ONLINE:
    1. IT'S ILLEGAL IN THE U.S. TO PURCHASE NARCOTICS ONLINE!!!
    2. Please don't ask us to help you find a place to purchase phen online. None of us have a desire to spend time in a federal prison. Yes, it's a FELONY!!
    3. It's not safe!! You have no clue what you'll really be getting...drywall dust/sandpaper/rat poison/etc.
    4. Most online pharmacies are a SCAM!! They will take your $$...send you whatever they want or nothing at all. What you order comes from another country so you can't do anything if they take your $$.
    5. If you are still desperate enough to want to purchase phen online....try meth instead. It's cheaper and has the same ingredients as what you'll get online. I don't recommend this method either.
