Please don't do this. Your body needs between 1200 and 1500 calories per day on a weight loss program, and many people successfully lose weight with more calories than that. If you cut down to 300 calories per day, you risk serious kidney problems, hair loss, your internal organs can shut down, etc.
If you have been taking Adipex for a long time, and are consuming too few calories as it is, then your metabolism has probably slowed down to compensate for the low calorie consumption. In other words, if you eat less, your body will burn less. So you aren't helping yourself.
You don't mention what type of diet plan you are following. What kinds of foods do you eat? How much weight do you need to lose? What is your current weight?
Please look over some of the more popular diet plans, such as the South Beach Diet. You'll get enough food to stay healthy, and you won't need pills such as Adipex. Your body will need a little time to get back to normal.
For the record, buying Adipex online is more expensive than seeing your doctor. I went to adipex-on-line.com and a prescription for 60 tablets cost $199. If you go to drugstore.com you can get the same thing for $96.14, and only $59.98 if you take the generic. A general doctor visit costs about $50 in most areas. So you get the medication at a lessor price, plus you get a physician to weigh you and track your weight loss, give nutrition advice (which you need) and make sure you are staying healthy. You cannot get that online.
Your idea of taking twice the dosage and cutting your calories that much, is very dangerous and the idea scares me! You need advice, and we strongly
recommend you see your physician before taking any further steps towards weight loss. If your doctor is unwilling to provide healthy weight loss advice, and prefers to just write a prescription, then find another doctor.
