My doctor started me onthe lower dose i think it was 15 mg when i woke up after 3 weeks i had not lost any weight so my doctor had me take the 37.5mg pills in the mornings. that was 2 weeks ago and i have only lost like 4 lbs total. What am i doing wrong. I cut out all of my soda intake. SOmeone said i might not be eating enough can this be true?
My question to you is Are you losing weight now? and If not are you exercising and what are your eating habits like?
I have tried phentermine twice with the same problem. I barely lose a lb. per week on 1200 calories and exercise, while others lose lots more on this plan.
I have started going to a specialist, and although Dont have the the solution yet, I believe it has to do with hormones and insulin resistence. Also, my doctor found that my leptin levels are messed up... And he says that when you are leptin resistent, it is next to impossible to lose weight. I'm imagining something similar is going on w you.
My doctor did not, however, tell me how to cure or treat leptin resistence. There are some "paleo diets" and advice online, but that hasn't worked for me either. Hopefully u will have better luck. I've been trying to lose the same miserable 20 lbs. for 5 years :-/

I am having a crisis at the moment. I’ve tried everything apart from weight loss surgery to lose weight I gained when out on anti psychotic meds like abilify 32kg! My dr presecribed me Duomine 30mg and I’m currently on my 5th week with 1kg weight loss.. I’ve been eating 500-100 calories per day little coffee and alcohol and exercising 4-7 hours everyday! Mostly walking, gym machines, weights and resistance/toning bands. I really was hopeful and thought I had lost a lot of weight until I weighed myself and I got down and out.
My blood tests came back normal and I have had plenty of energy and eating less but really why can’t I lose weight? I thought maybe muscle mass I’m gaining but wouldn’t that result in burning more fat and losing weight? my clothes are a little looser than before and I have less fluid but still my stomach is hard like a rock and bloated up like a pregnant lady I have no idea what that is from apart from before abilify and other meds that were forced onto me by TA I was able to lose weight easy and was a healthy bmi. I’ve tried fasting, supplements, cleanses, Akins/paleo, raw foods etc even recreational drugs and nothing has worked.
What do I drink besides water is there anything else
Iam 70 years old I started taking 37.5 phentermine. I walk everyday for 40 minutes. My dr gave me a 1300 a day calorie diet. I keep within that range. I have never gone over it. Iam 4 11 and I weigh 145. I take Zoloft . I have gained two lbs .i do not know what is wrong. I follow and do everything the dr told me. Can someone please help me
I don’t have an answer. I’m new here and didn’t see where I could post a question. I too am on the lowest dose and nothing is happening. Been on it a week. Some days I don’t have any hunger. Other days I can eat chicken and veggies and be hungry an hour later. I drink lots of water. Cut all sugar out. Walk 3 miles daily. Only issue is I don’t have regular bowel movements. I can go days without one. What does people take to help this along. I take fiber gummies too. Thx
