    Yes, it is similar to the ECA stack. It is an appetite suppressant used for weight loss. It was once removed from the market due to the side effects but was reintroduced recently with a new formula. It is recommended for short term use only.

    I got it from a Dr. Very effective appetite suppressant but to speedy feeling for me and I built up a tolerance to it very quickly which was concerning. It screwed with my emotions too when it would start to wear off. I prefer Welbutrin (which i also get from a Dr.) because it acts on the reward center of the brain and is less speedy feeling.

    - No impact on energy levels, unlike EC, and lack of data showing it to work permanently, unlike EC.
    - Concluded it was garbage.

    Talking data, right now (PM me for full paper), a combination of phen & topiramate is the best legally available drug treatment for obesity purely because the FDA has banned all the stuff that is vastly superior in all aspects. The Phen/Topiramate combo increases weight loss by 8-9% over the course of a year vs placebo. In other words, it's garbage.

    So yes, if you can find the good stuff, there is literally zero valid reason to mess around with phentermine IMO. It's garbage popularized only by the FDA's dumbass decision making when it comes to drug legality.
    What’s the good stuff

    Phentermine is an effective form of therapy for obese patients who need to lose weight to decrease diseases associated with obesity. The magnitude of the weight loss through using Phentermine will depend on the degree of caloric restriction and the use of a graded exercise program. Phentermine should be used as a short term drug to help patients to start losing weight while the patient is undergoing permanent long term changes in their attitude towards food and exercise. The body starts to build up a resistance to the effects of Phentermine after a few weeks of treatment, by which time the patient should be well on their way to a new lifestyle and ready to stop taking Phentermine while continuing to maintain a healthy weight on their own.

    My girl is in the phentermine and lipo b or vitamin b shots, a little “stack” most of the medical spas or weight loss clinics are doing
    and the doctor (md) did tell her she has to get blood work at the conclusion of a 90 day period for the phentermine to make sure it’s still working as it does loose effectiveness after about 90 days for most people so they encourage a break equal time off as on I believe. But yes i know her doctor did advise it loose effectiveness over time.

    My girl has had some success on it in two months she’s down 7 pounds but she’s also added a lot of lean mass and all her lifts have gone up pretty significantly. Gone down two pant sizes and she looks a lot better. She’s has some decent success with it but she’s also been very focus in on her training and diet has been pretty decent for the most part.



    I’ve noticed she does eat a lot smaller portions than usual.

    That's not correct. Fen-Phen was a combination of two drugs given together. The Fenfluramine was banned due to causing heart valve issues, the Phen (phentermine) is still legal and prescribed.
    Not sure how people relate this to ECA and the appetite suppression with Phen is 10X greater than ECA, at least in my experience. You need to remind yourself to eat with it. I've taken the 30mg tabs and the 37.5mg, both work great, can even go with a 1/2 tab on some days. I like to take this with DNP as it helps with the lethargy and doesn't increase the heat at all of the DNP.
    Does cause some ED as well in many men as an FYI.
