I saw that at least 2 other people in the phentermine support group here were prescribed a dosage of 37.5mg/day. Am I taking too little? The name of the pill is Razin and as far as I know, it only comes in 15mg. pills and is supposed to be taken just one a day. What is the normal dosage for weight loss (for appetite suppression)? I weight around 185lb. or so and am age 54.

The recommended dosage of phentermine for the capsule form is 15mg, 30mg, or 37.5mg once a day. With the tablets, the recommended dose is 18.75 mg (half a tablet) or 37.5 mg (one tablet) once daily. If needed, the doc may increase the dose to half a tablet twice a day. The medication is intended for short-term use only.
Please take care, be well!
