Hello Mdsox. Its not advised to exceed the 37.5mg dose. The side effects to doing so could be fatal and in as a much that the dose itself will not help the drug to perform any better. Regards and be safe, pledge

I totally agree with Pledge. I took 37.5 mg for 3 months and I wouldn't even think about taking more than that. Very dangerous. Ruthie

Hello Ruthie, thin isn't always better. Phentermine can be a nasty drug in regards to side effects. Have a wonderfull Sunday, I'll be watching some golf and of course on the grill. My wife went "home" to Florida for a few days and I am a king of my domain ( the dogs are my cheerleaders) Go grill up a storm Daddy! Talk to you :-0)

Usually that is the time released version of generic adipex. If you feel it is NO longer working, and you are seeing a dr or diet clinic with a dr, you might ask to try Didrex. It is another appetite suppressant and I personally have done better on it. You still have to cut calories with either. I am using a good diet clinic and they monitor your progress and do a group peep talk and explain the meds role in weight loss, and how it is actually the cutting of calories that causes you to lose weight, the med is simply an appetite suppressant. Didrex will cost a bit more, but it may work, if the phentermine seems to have stopped working. Drink water and eat pulpy fruit, those help fill you up and keep you from stopping up. Patti

I am fine, thank you. I think it was pledge who wrote that phentermine will only work for a short time, so give that credit to him. Patti

Patti, No..I was actually talking about the Didrex. Anyway. You both give great answers. You're two of the people I enjoy reading responses from. Take care, Ruthie

I take two 37.5 mg phentermine pills a day. I started the first month with just one pill and it didn't work for me anymore. I feel just fine, it's ddeffanently safe to take more than one ( although I wouldn't exeed more than two ), back in the day that's what they took anyways. Phentermine is not only for people who are obese it is also for people who need to learn how to control their appetite by curbing it and when you've reached your goal weight, then you ggradually... Gradually ease yourself off of it so the weight doesnt come back. When I started taking it I was 190 pounds. My biggest weight was 240 but when I got to 190 I couldn't do it with diet and exercise alone. Within 3 months of taking phentermine I reached my goal weight of 145. Lots of diet and exercise, although everyone loses weight differently and I seem to lose it fast when I cooperate with myself. I wish you the best of luck.
