I work nights also. I always take phentermine first thing in the morning when I'm not working. Right after I get up on an empty stomach, and then wait 30 min the eat something.
On the days I work nights, I take when I wake up, because you want to take it before you eat anything.
When I'm coming off nights and adjusting to days again I sleep from 9-12. When I wake up, I take the phentermine.
The first month I took phentermine, the pharmacist asst told me to take with food to keep me from being nauseated. I lost 4 lbs. that month. When I could have lost more. You'll do fine. Actually, it helps me to keep up at work and helps me to be more alert.
