I was prescribed Phendimetrazine from a weight loss doctor

Customer Question

Hi there. I was prescribed Phendimetrazine from a weight loss doctor and am seeing great results but I am having a hard time affording the $65 every week that they charge. Do you know if it's possible to buy this medication any other way so that it is more affordable?

I would check prices at every local pharmacy in your area. If you live in Missouri I could give you a price quote tomorrow. Also phentermine is a similar medication that may cost less. Hopefully this fully answers your question. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks

Thank you. The problem is that they give me the medication in the doctors office each week and they charge my the $65 for the appt as well as the med. I've asked if they can just give me a prescription so that I can fill it myself for cheaper but they won't do it because they want to make the money

You should see if your primary physician will write a prescription for you.
