Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Can i ask has your thyroid been tested? Secondly are you looking for a prescription for phenteramine here or are you asking whether it would be a viable option for you?

My thyroid is fine. Am I able to get a script from you?

Unfortunately no, we cannot prescribe any drugs online as that is against the law in the US. In order to prescribe we need to form a doctor patient relationship which can be formed only by an in office visit. So unfortunately we cannot prescribe any medications online. You can contact customer services for further help in this regard
