I have started to taper down. I began at 37.5mg for two months. Today I started 30mg, and the idea is 18mg, then to 15mg before I have excess skin removal surgery in November. For a better picture, I am 5’4 and started at 287.5 lb, lost everything down to 176.4 lb on my own with no drugs or surgery. Hit a huge plateau and used Adipex to push through. The pharmacist said once I get below BMI of 27 they cannot fill the script. I do not think I need it for weight loss as I am so close to my goal and just needed a little push, but rather am afraid of withdrawal.
Has anyone gone off without tapering down and what was your experience like?
