Quoting Laciea Delay:" When you went the doc to get the phentermine did you ask for it? I have gained about 30lbs during my ... [snip!] ... my hunger. Just curious if my doc will even prescribe it to me if I go in there asking for it. I am overweight for my height."
I wasn't sure how to approach it.. so basically I went in.. asked for a repeat on a prescription and then said I was looking to lose weight and I wanted a boost and then suggested the drug.
She explained that there are risks, and that it would be a 30 day trial..
But my BMI is almost 40, and im extremely obese.
In Australia the drug is pretty expensive, $100 per month so i'm just gonna try it for a month and see if it helps. It defintly helps with hunger.. I haven't eaten today at all and it's almost 5pm and I just did an hour workout.
I'm not trying not to eat either, i'm just not hungry.. but I will eat later on and during the week I will eat more consistently at work.
It really can't hurt to ask, but I think if your border line overweight the doctor may not, and you also have to have good blood pressure because it can raise your BP.
