There is nothing easy about dieting. The things that work best without harming you are drinking water, and exercising. The water fills your stomach and takes away room to put food. It also flushes out chemicals that might cause you to crave foods that you have an "allergy" to. By that I mean, some people crave potato chips because of salt or certain types of pastries because of the sugar and can not stop eating once they start until the particular food is gone.
Exercise helps some people to control the appetite because it increases the adrenalin action just like the appetite suppressant pills do, except it occurs naturally and does not have any noticeable bad side effects because when you get too tired you generally stop. After a pill your stuck with the bad side effects until the pill wears off. This is the only thing that does not have the most dangerous side effects everything else is always a risk.

[QUOTE=Jobeegirl]My doctor just put me on Phentermine 30mg and Lexapro 5mg (combination Phen-Pro). He told me his patients are claiming it works just as good as Phen Fen had worked. I took Phen Fen back in 1996 and lost 55 pounds. We'll see if it works just as good for me. I'll keep you posted.[/QUOTE]

Thanks for replying everyone :)

Now Lexapro is an antidepressant correct ? Is that usual for a dr to put someone on that to loose weight ??

Is your dr saying The Phentermine is just as good as phen Fen or the Lexapro??

DO you notice an increase in your blood pressure at all ?

Thanks :)

I am taking Xendadrine EFX and it is working great. I use to be so hungry in the evening when I got home from work that I would just go crazy eating. Now, I am not hungry in the evening. I could eat or I couldn't it really doesn't matter.
