Hi Sam,


In searching for information, it looks like 37.5mg tablets or capsules are the highest dose which is made.  There are lower doses available of 15mg or 30mg.


Phentermine is a powerful stimulant (like amphetamine) which acts as an appetite suppressant.  It is intended for short-term use only.  Please be sure that you are following the medical advise of your physician and pharmacist while on phentermine.
