Hi, I'm Dr Chaithanya, attending you today. An online doctor cannot prescribe phentermine. Any further questions, please ask me or pls rate the question as positive.

Thank you

It is a controlled substance and cannot be prescribed online, until you are examined, and you should use it more than 3 months even if it is prescribed.
