Phentermine is a weight loss medication that is available by prescription only.
Take care, best wishes!
Dear Chad, Rajive is right, it is rx only, but most diet clinics that have a dr, will give you an rx pretty easily for phentermine aka adipex, if you are overweight and appear from your records and general health to be healthy enough to take it. It didn't work that well for me, Pledge, a member here, say it is ony supposed to be used for 3 weeks. I tried the more expensive med the diet clinin I use offers, it is called Didrex or Benzaphetamine and I have had better luck with it and tolerated it better. It is also an appetite suppressant and it only works really, if you actually cut calories, but it worked better than the phentermine did for me. Patti
I just researched this, and from I see, you can purchase phentermine over the counter. I think what is not available now is phen/phen, which had two properties in it. Please be careful though, and I would suggest going to a diet doctor to be monitored if you choose to go that route.
It is not only a prescription medication in the USA it is a controlled substance. No you cannot buy it legally without a prescription.
Hello chad - welcome to the site and I hope I can help with this issue as well. If you are trying to lose weight, I am going to recommend the plan I did. I lost 92 pounds and I have kept it off. It took me a total of 9 months had I done it straight through but I will say I was losing a rate of 10 lbs. per month. I used michael thurmonds 6-week body makeover. There are no drugs involved in this program. What you do get out of it is a lifestyle change. The foods that are recommended for you and your body-type are the foods that you can live with and by for the rest and best of your life. I am 58 years old and did this plan because I mad at one of my doctors and also mad at myself. After I lost all of the weight... I was still mad at myself that I didn't do it sooner. But I couldn't exercise because of all the surgeries I had over the years. That didn't seem to matter...
I did start walking so that I could get some sense of balance back to my life. I have kept this off for about 4 years now...
If you want that med for any other reason... you are playing with fire. That is all I will say on that subject.
