Axcion AP doesn’t have an affect on me anymore- HELP!

I’ve been taking my phentermine axcion ap 30mg for a few months now (on and off so as to note develop dependency on them), but they’ve stopped working for me! Has anyone else had this happen to them? What can I do to restart it’s appetite suppressing effect on me? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks everyone! Xoxo ## For the best efficacy, you should take them daily, as prescribed, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. If you are skipping doses, then that will reduce how well they work for you, that is why the FDA instructs you to take the medication as prescribed and not to miss a dose. They also warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming, so I understand your concern, but this is just not a medication that works, if taken occasionally. It side effe...

looking for a dr.that prescribes pain pills

I live n hot springs. Am a bit overweight. Taking pill for weight loss. Have lost 50 lbs. Have chronic pain in my knees. No Dr or orthopedic dr will give m pain pills. Xrays show severe arthritis. But nobody to help me. Even went to little rock n no help either. Can anyone help me. ## Hello, Siss! How are you? I am sorry that you're in pain. Pain pills aren't always the first appropriate choice to treat arthritis. And what kind of doctor have you been seeing? If you do require them on a long-term, ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year. Losing more weight could also improve the situation, since that places a lot of stress on your knees. ## I've been to orthopedic drs. 4 a matter of fact. N one rheumolig...

Anyone prescribed, Contrave as well as Phentermine & Belviq at once?

I began taking Phetermine in October of '14, weighing in at 272 big ones! Yikes! I had weight loss--but in December my doctor suggested we pair the Phen with Contrave. He said it would help in the evening when I usually like my snacks. My weight loss was minimal but still there. By Feb. '15, I'm down 55lbs, but again weight loss was moving slower. So my doctor wants me to add Belviq. I've been taking all three and so far no major side effects. Just thirsty for water. I feel like contrave is supposed to be this miracle drug, but I don't feel like it does anything. Am I the only one being prescribed all these at the same time? Side note, I just has full blood work completed to make sure none of my organs are shutting down from this. Since day 1, I've eaten better a...

Why do you want to stop it? The FDA lists Contrave as being used to aid in weight loss and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia.
