All patients have the right to know what treatment they are getting. What ever is happening between you and your physician is bit strange.
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant which is of short term purpose only. ie less than 10 weeks.
It has many adverse effects, you have also reduced your 11kgs of weight in 90 days it is huge decrease. You havent mentioned your height, so target weight cant be calculated
Now it is time to rely on other methods of weight reduction.
Have adequate meal, ie frequency can be increased but amount should be reduced.
Good physical activity should be there.
Dont starve yourself, it may cause many complications.
Stop taking any more drugs for weight reduction
