They gave me Phentermine HCL. My doctor told me its not the newest pill out there. It's been around for years but since I've never had it we would give it a try, also it was the cheapest! So far that is the extra push I needed because it makes me feel full. I don't eat too much and it takes away any craving I ever had for desserts. I only need one a day where most over the counter pills you have to take about 6 a day. I will say it's not a miracle drug you do have to eat right and exercise. It does however put me in the mindset to eat healthy and I'm learning more of that lifestyle. I do occasionally eat at fast food joints but now I can easily choose the healthy option without the craving of the awesome food I once would order. I have been with the weight loss program since April 9th and to date have lost 25 lbs. I drink water instead of any other drink. I have had 3 drinks total that were flavored water in this journey. I keep out salt, sugar, and keep carbs like bread to a minimum. But I don't feel hungry or like I'm missing out. I can even pass on Birthday cakes at parties!
Not only do I take the pills but I do get the optional B-12 shot. So far I have only had two injections, which the doctor recommends weekly but, like I said that is an option and so far I have chosen to do it bi-weekly.
This might not be for everyone but it is something that is working for me. I believe if I do this under doctor supervision and only take what I am suppose to it's pretty safe. I don't recommend people to go online to find it or get it from friends. If you do want to try it consult with your physician. They are there to help you.
Note: Leslie Sansone Walk at Home DVD's are my main choice of exercise. It make it's easy to exercise in any weather condition and she makes you want to keep doing it.
I really hope this helps!
