adult ADD and Phentermine

I have been complaining about symptoms of ADD constantly. No matter how hard I try to be organized and complete tasks, etc., I am what someone recently termed, a whirling dervish, well put! I am currently in a weight loss program where the doc prescribes phentermine for appetite control. I don't need it for appetite control, since I'm taking HCG (lost 80, gained 20) again, but my PRIMARY doc is so conservative that she won't give me anything for the ADD even though my heart and blood pressure are fine. I'm 60 yo, So, I accepted it from the diet doctor to see if it will help. I hate taking medication, but I'm desperate to at least try something to take some care of this flightiness, etc. I'm all over the place and get nothing much accomplished, and I HATE IT!!
Just took half of the 37mg tab and am just wondering how it will affect my focus, and how long it will take, I know, as an educator, that med such as adderall or ritalin works per day, then stops until it is taken again, Can I expect similar from the PHEN? Do I have to take it every day, or when I really need to be focused?? THANKS!!
