I have taken phentermine and phendimetrazine as an appetite suppressant and neither of them worked for me. I've been going to a weight loss doctor and he has now prescribed diethylpropion 75 mg controlled release. I have taken it for two days and still have not noticed a difference. I was wondering how quickly it was supposed to work. I know the 25 mg pills are supposed to work immediately. Also, if anyone is taking the 75 mg, what time of day do you take it and is it on an empty stomach? I've lost 13 lbs so far on just dieting, but if the appetite suppressant would work, I'm sure I could lose more. Thanks for your help.

I Have been taking diethylpropion 75mg since 9/17/10, which I lost 12lb so far. (within three days i could see results) In the morning I will eat a fruit w/ piece of turkey breast sandwich meat ,then no later than 9:30am sometimes 10:00 with a full glass of water I will take medicine. Make sure you getting enough water in body.Also you may wanna try to eat a fruit , vegetables or meat even if you not hungry every three hours and see if that will help.

I started taking the medicine this pass Friday, and right away I know it decreases my appetite because I eat a lot of junk, this morning( Sunday) I seen a whole pack of Oreo cookies in my kitchen, and did not touch it. And I went to a wedding reception and did not touch any of the side food, or the sweets. I am the type of person when ever I go into the store I have to get a candy bar or soda. But I haven't had the craving. I think it also a psychological part that comes with any medicine or major decision. I am taking the 75mg, and I am on a protein diet for the first week with the medicine. I think every week is something different or I can add in another food. Also the doctor told me it's important to drink plenty of water. I do have a particular time I was instructed to take it, which is 12 noon, I hope some of these things will help.
I know how you feel it was hard for me without the medicine and I am not the type person who like taking pills, so far it seems to be working. My doctor also said, less food more weight you will lose, if you really not hungry don't get, I know that sound simple, but I am able to eat a pretty good amount so what he saying even though I know I can eat this amount, if I am not hungry don't eat it. I also think the water is a key to it all, even though I haven't been drinking it like I should.
