About two years ago I started taking phentermine 37.5 mg and it worked GREAT. I recently started taking 15mg but im not noticing a big change in my mood and appetite! Im still HUNGRY!!! Ahould I ask my doctor for a higher dosage, I feel as though the 15mg is not enough for me. Less side affects with it but not near as much weight lost as 37.5 mg

Hello diva08. The 37.5mg is the strongest dose of phentermine available. You might ask your doctor to go for the 37.5mg, but as you said, the side effects might be stronger and possibly more of them. Its a bit of a tradeoff. Best wishes along with good health to you,pledge
