Hi, if you are an adult, using this medication for weight gain, then it is advised that you take this 4 times a day. Was this medication prescribed for you? And if so, did your doctor not give you dosing information?

Hi Sweetie, i can't lecture you as i've taken prescription medications in the past which weren't prescribed for me, but i regret that now. I hope you listen to the advice endlesspred has given you, and visit your doctor to ask for this medication yourself. You friend will likely have been assessed by her doctor to see if she is able to take this healthily. Please do the same...

It is very dangerous to take a pill prescribed to someone else. Your health and makeup will be very different from the friend. If you have not had a full physical, you may be endangering yourself. See a doctor and if you are doing well, ask the doctor to prescribe for you. It ma even be something better suited to you. Please be very careful.
