I went to my primary care physician. Basically I told him that I had been doing everything to lose weight and was only getting bigger. He did blood work first then after the results were normal prescribed it to me.

Thanks ladies,
 
I'm pretty sure that he/she will prescribe it to me.  My only hesitation in going to this dr is that I have never been to this particular Dr before.  I hope that her not knowing my full medical history(eventhough there's nothing there) will her hinder her from prescribing phentermine to me...

...tell them though you are trying all you can to lose weight, you can't stop the cravings. That usually works.

drs in my area are just giving it to folks. i dont think their is a 'criteria' to get it here in FL...
 
ETA...Most PCP's & OB/GYN' s are doing the program too. So if you have one ask them about it.

They must be pickier in Ga. I had to go to a weight loss clinic. I think there are some federal government stipulations on certain meds lately that docs won't tell us about.

I cannot find a dr or clinic here for the life of me.  And I'm in MS, the fattest state on the map...When talking over the phone, do I just come out and ask, "Do yall prescribe phen?"....Maybe I'm not asking the questions right...

Phentermine, whats up with everybody and phentermine? About 3 years ago I was prescribed phen, lost weight however when I stop taking it, I gained the weight back. As of right now I'm taking ALLI, which I know a lot of ppl are scared of because of TE's. I take ALLI because I want it to help me with my eating habits and not just the weightloss, so far on this I've managed to lose over 11pds . It takes commitment with eating right and exericise and thats the way to go and so far no TE's and Ive been using it for over a month now. I challenge you ALL to give ALLI a try and see what your results are and its safe, well at least thats what they say (FDA approved)
