Phentermine Dosage Instructions

Sometimes shedding those unwanted pounds isn’t as easy as just watching what you eat. Sometimes it may take a little extra help along with the right changes in your lifestyle to get those pounds to move on off. One way some people are getting that help with their weight loss efforts is with Phentermine. Phentermine 37.5mg diet pill is used with your doctor’s approval and supervision in combination with an exercise program, healthy, low-calorie dietary changes, and a change in the way you view weight loss to aid you in losing weight. It is typically recommended for those who have more than a few pesky pounds, but have been diagnosed as obese or have health issues due to their excess weight and it’s been determined that the health issues will resolve or improve by getting the weight off. There are specific guidelines written for Phentermine and because it is a stimulant similar to that of amphetamine, it should only be taken as directed, and it’s important to follow the correct Phentermine dosage instructions recommended by your doctor.

Dosage Schedules and More

The only thing you can to do is make sure to take your doses on time and properly.
Your daily dosage is best taken thirty minutes before your breakfast (or first meal of the day), on an empty stomach. Keep in mind that it may cause mild insomnia for some people. As a result, it is advised that you don’t take it in the evening or at night. When you receive your prescription from us, full instructions for you to follow will be included.

Some physicians recommend splitting the daily Phentermine 37.5 mg dosage into three portions and that you should consume each one half, an hour prior to eating your meals. Read the directions on your prescription label thoroughly and, if there is something you don’t understand, whatever you do: don’t hesitate to ask your doctor or pharmacist. Also make sure, of course, to listen to the answers carefully and even request written instructions for future reference. Under no circumstances you should alternate the directions of taking Phentermine. The duration of treatment varies on the results and on your reaction to the medication.

The usual dosage recommendations are, for Adults: Take 15 to 37.5 mg orally one time a day either before breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after breakfast. For Pediatrics: 17 years and older can take 15 to 37.5mg orally one time a day before breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after breakfast.

Maximum dosage of phentermine per day

Phentermine comes in two types of prescription forms; brand and generic. It also comes in either pill or capsule form and in a choice of dosages depending on how your doctor wants to order the medication for you. He will base his dosage on a few factors: your weight, age and, lifestyle among a few other factors. The most common dosages to choose from are 15mg, 30mg and 37.5, with the maximum dosage being the 37.5mg. That is as high as a doctor should order it for a patient, to be taken once a day either at one time, or broken in half to take 18.75mg in the morning and the other 18.75mg at night.

Phentermine twice a day

If your doctor orders the highest dose of 37.5mg, he may order it to be taken once a day at one time or take half of it in the morning and half at night, which means you will be taking Phentermine twice a day, but the total mg is still the same. If he orders a smaller dose of 15mg, he may order that to be taken twice a day, morning and night.

Phentermine 15mg

Phentermine 15mg is the lowest dose of the medication and is a good starting dose for those who are taking it for the first time and who may not have as much weight to lose as others, or you have other medical conditions that your doctor feels the lower dose would be safer for you. It can always be adjusted as needed.

Phentermine dosage 75mg

The highest dosage of phentermine is 37.5mg and there is not a higher dose. Phentermine does not come in 75mg nor is it recommended that you take that much in one day.

Phentermine dosage to get high

Phentermine can be addictive which is why there are strict prescribing guidelines. It gives people energy and can give them a “high” feeling, or wired feeling. How much Phentermine does it take to get a high feeling? It depends. Some people report feeling high on the 37.5mg a day but the longer some people take it, the more it will take to achieve the high feeling as a tolerance is built over time. This is why doctors will usually only prescribe Phentermine to be taken anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks.

Missed Dose
If you forget to take your phentermine one day, do not double-up or increase your next dose. Simply leave the missed dose and start up once again on the regular schedule.

Phentermine Tablets and Capsules

Traditionally, these pill is available in three oral pill sizes: 37.5, 30, and 25 mg. Depending on your prescription, they are available in both tablet and capsule form. Some are even available in long lasting, or extended release, which helps when you don’t want to take too many pills every day or if you have trouble remembering numerous doses.
