Phentermine Dosage

Phentermine is available in a few main dosages, including 8 mg, 15 mg, 30 mg and 37, 5 mg. Besides, in some countries like Australia, the maximum daily Phentermine dose is 40 mg.

Despite the availability of a large variety of Phentermine dosages, the dosing frequency of the drug depends, first of all, on the prescribed dosage form of the drug.

Standard dosing regimens of Phentermine that are prescribed for most patients.

Phentermine 8 mg tablets (Lomaira)

Phentermine resin 15 mg, 30 mg and 40 mg capsules (Duromine, Ionamin)

Phentermine 37.5 mg tablets / capsules (Adipex and its generics)

Three times a day, 30 minutes before meals

Once a day, at breakfast

Once a day, before or after breakfast

Dosing regimen is commonly adjusted by the healthcare specialist in accordance with the severity of the patient’s health condition and his/her body mass. The optimal dose that is frequently prescribed to start the treatment course is 30 mg, though it can be diversified during the medication use with account for Phentermine tolerance and clinical effect.

Recommendations for the use of the anorectic drug:

  • avoid late evening dosing & using Phentermine withalcohol;
  • swallow whole pills without chewing, and wash them down with a glass of still water;
  • combine the use of any Phentermine dosage with a low-calorie diet and exercise.

Inform your doctor about all slightest reactions that you experience after taking the drug, and never modify the dosage without a doctor’s notice. Phentermine misuse, as well as overuse, may provoke devastating side effects.

I have been prescribed phentermine 30mg -I am very weary of starting it though
I have a few questions that my doctor probably cant answer
1. if used as prescribed does anyone have experience with drowsy driving?
2. how severe is the insomnia? If I take it early in the morning will I be able to get sleep by nighttime?

Hello Artemis. Even though drowsiness is not a very common side effect of Phentermine, many people report having it both as a result of insomnia and for some unexplainable reason. At times, this unexplainable reason is explained by the fact that people don’t eat or drink enough during the day. As for the insomnia, it also is different in each person. Some people have no insomnia at all, in others it is so strong that they sleep no more than 1-2 hours at night, others suffer from it for just 1-2 nights. As a rule, insomnia and other side effects,… Read more »
