    Getting off Phentermine - Taper??

    I have been taking Phentermine for about 2 months now - it is working well for me (a little jitteriness and difficulty sleeping). I have heard several reports that it doesn't really work after 3 months - so I need to transition to something else.

    I DONT want to have the apetite rebound so many folks have experiences after stopping Phen - so any advisa? I am thinking of transitioning to Meridia for weight maintainence for another 6 months.

    Shall I start taking meridia before I stop the Phentermine? Since meridia take 1-3 weeks to take effect?

    Phentermine is the only diet drug that's ever helped me. Yes, it's effect
    does wear down the longer you use it.

    I didn't taper off. I guess the effect wasn't quite that dramatic that I felt
    a need to.

    I hated meridia. Hope it works better for you than it did for me.

    More than appetite, I was a bit tired after I quit the phen. No big deal. Felt fine after a weekend of rest.
