Phentermine : After having had gastric surgery for weight loss, a decision to also add in phentermine would need to be made only after careful evaluation of your medical history and how you were doing currently with your weight-loss metabolically. Unfortunately, we cannot prescribe diet related medications here on HealthTap. You should make an appointment to see your regular doctor. Good luck.
