    Hey Van, I had high blood pressure before I started taking Phen and I was prescribed Hyzaar. Then when I started Phen, my doc kept me on the Hyzaar, and the Phen hasn't made it go up any. My doctor is hoping I'll be able to stop taking blood pressure meds this month. We'll see. Welcome to the group.

    Are you wondering if the Phen causes high blood pressure or do you already have high blood pressure?
    Have a great day!

    Van, I don't know where you are in North Carolina
    but there is a Bariatric Clinic in Greenville, SC
    that prescribes it. I don't know if having high
    blood pressure will prevent them from prescribing it or not. I am 140/90 without phen, and I don't take high blood pressure medication. The Dr sd it has not gone up.

    If you want the phone # let me know. It costs around $100 for the initial blood work, $30 a month for 37.5 phen, and they will prescribe a sleep aid if you need it(I do)called Trazodone
    which is about $10 for a months supply which is 15 pills-I take 1/2 each night.It is a 100 mg pill so am taking 50 mg a day.

    I think new patients return in 2 weeks. After that you go once a month and the office visit is $45 plus meds.

    I have ordered online before. The online prescription works out about the same as the office visit w/Dr+ meds

    I don't have it. I do take a water pill though.

    Welcome to the Boards. You can order the Phen from the site, you don't have to go through a Dr.
    It is good to have one follow you though.
