Smile Phentermine What Brand is Best? and alternatives

Hello everyone, I'm new here. I used to weigh 300 pounds and am now 231, but have been stuck at that spot for MONTHS (until I get the flu then the weight lost from being sick stays off, that's what happened when I was 240), and I was looking around here on this site and found posts on Phentermine.

I've seen Phentermine on ebay and in online stores, but can you buy Phentermine in regular stores like Rite Aid and Walgreens? Also, where is it safe to buy it if it's not an in store purchase? I've seen webpages upon webpages with all different prices, are there some stores that are bootlegging phentermine?

Also, I'd like to try Phentermine because I've been stuck in the same spot. I've tried eating less, eating more, excerising more, excerising less and nothing is working.

And if I can't get Phentermine what is a good alternative to phentermine? Thank you.

As far as we've seen, there are no diet pills that work in helping weight loss and keeping that weight off. Although there have been tons of stories where people took pills, such as phentermine, and gained the weight back after.

If you want to try phentermine, you need a doctor's prescription and find a doctor who will prescribe it to you. I really wouldn't trust an online store/ebay for any pill as there is no guarantee in what you are getting.

My advice would be Don't try buying phentermine online. It's illegal now and its easy to get scammed into fake "prescriptions"...and those drugs come from over seas and cant be trusted even from supposed U.S. websites...there are all sorts of news articles about it...deffinatly talk to your doctor and see if she is willing to prescribe you something. Its always worth trying and it can be helpful to motivate with the weight loss at least in the beginning-- but than you have to maintain and be careful once you stop taking the pills that you dont gain all the weight back.
Been there done that. :P

My doctor gave me a script for it years ago. It was a total nightmare, I didn't sleep for weeks and I was way wound up. I lost a lot of weight but it came back immediately after I stopped.

Prescription drug sales are not allowed on eBay. So whatever they are claiming to be Phentermine (probably the spelling on the item is a letter or two off) is not Phentermine.
