    PHENTERMINE

    Phentermine tablets stamped ‘K 25’ are authentic according to Dr. Michael Anchors

    "I am now convinced that the phentermine 37.5 mg tablet from KVK Tech, Pennsylvania, is genuine," Michael Anchors, MD, PhD from Gaithersburg, Maryland noted in an email.

    "It is stamped 'K 25'. I have attached a photo."

    "In a previous mailing I affirmed the genuiness of the tablet from Qualitest stamped 'K' on one side and '50 30' on the other, and the tablet from Actavis stamped 'A159'."

    "All are football shaped and either light blue or white with dark blue speckles."

    "I'm doing this because I can't be sure of the origin of the fake pills the patient showed me."

    Dr. Anchors previously noted that some of the phentermine being sold is fake.

    I am posting this message with Dr. Anchor's permission.

    This message is also posted on Dr. Anchor's website, phenpro.com.

    PHENTERMINE

    How long does phentermine stay in your body?

    The half-life of phentermine Hcl is 7 to 8 hours. This means that it takes 7-8 hours for the body to get rid of half of the phentermine. The half-life of sustained-release phentermine resin complex is 20 to 24 hours. (Weintraub and Bray, 1989) Phentermine resin, which provides sustained-release, causes peak blood concentrations within 8 hours. Appetite-suppressing concentrations persist for at least 20 hours. (Silverstone, 1992)
