I just started taking phentermine and want to make sure i’m taking the right dosage. I just feel a little unsure.
My friend has been taking it for awhile and we’re about the same height but she’s lighter than I am. She takes 15mg once a day or just half of a 15mg.
Now i’m 5’1, 203lbs and i’ve been taking the 37.5mg once in the morning and a half of one in the afternoon. I’ve been thinking about starting to take some of the 5-HTP because I am a real sucker for sweets. So that’s where i’m at right now. My friend thinks that I should be taking it 3 times a day. *I only ask because she is working as a medical assistant and studying towards her RN. So I respect her opinion.*
I’m not allergic to anything and don’t forsee any other kinds of problems. I rarely take aspirin or dayquil when i’m ill, so I don’t have any kind of tolerance built up for meds.
The only thing that makes me think she could be right is that I haven’t lost much and I don’t have a major energy boost like most people seem to get. I do feel more alert and awake but not raring to go.
Oh I guess I should add that my goal weight is 135, (i have a large build). I’m female, if that matters. Any opinions/advice would be appreciated!
