My Dr. prescribed first phendimetrazine 35mg for weight loss. Since this did not work that well, he perscribed Diethylpropion 25mg for two weeks. He told me to take diethylpropion the same way as phendimetrazine, 1 in the morning, 2 pills an hour before lunch and 2 pills an hour before dinner. Now, I have read side effects and suggested amount to take on the diethylpropion and I am worry, I may be taking too much of this pill. Can someone tell me if I should be concern on the amount I am taking? and does anyone know if diethylpropion is better than phendimetrazine?.Thanks

Hello dsyg. I agree. Your dose of Diethylpropion is high. The recommended dose is 75mg per day. It is suggested that one 25mg pill be taken before each of your 3 meals. As to one being better over the other, they both work much the same. Best of wishes and good health to you, pledge
