Customer Question

I recently took Phentermine for a couple of weeks and would like to try it again because I had success on it. Can I speak to a dr to have a prescription written? I don't want to go to the health clinic again because they charge $75/visit.

Phenteramine is a controlled substance.

In the US, there is no way you can get a prescription legally without an exam, and seeing a doctor in person.

It also has a limit on its duration of use, which must be monitored.....
