diethylpropion: Been on these pills for a month and lost 15 lbs so far. Tried so many pills to lose weight and nothing worked. Decided to go to a weight loss doctor and it was so worth it!

Tenuate (diethylpropion): I am no longer obese, but it looks like I will have to fight bulimia all my life. With ups and downs. It is not like I have not tried to work the roots of the problem, but extra help is needed now and then, as I can't eradicate it it seems. Tenuate has been a great support. I have used it sporadically, for moderate lengths of time. It has helped me so much when bulimia takes over, it lifts the dependency. Unfortunately it is no longer approved in Europe. I feel let down, and left to face my problems the hard way, again and again.

diethylpropion: Went to a diet clinic as I was unhappy with my weight, put on 3 stone while being in a relationship, only started a week ago went back to the clinic to be weighed and so on to find I have lost 7 pound in a week. Find the tabs helped a lot as I find I'm a picker when it comes to food and these tablets stopped me picking and I'm cutting the meals I usually have in half. Hope to lose an extra 27 pound to get my target weight.

Tenuate Dospan (diethylpropion): Favorable experience. I was too fat and my doctor prescribed it: Tenuate 75mg. Lost a lot of weight rather quickly probably due to the fact I wasn't hungry at all while taking Tenuate 75mg. As a truck driver the added bonus of staying awake and alert helped. No bad side effects & I was able to stop taking them without any withdrawal problems. I took only one each night before starting work. It was great. Ask your doctor first about a prescription.

diethylpropion: I've been using this medicine for the past two week and started weighting 224 and now I am down to 214. I lost ten pounds and have 30 more to go. I take half a pill in the morning (10:30) and half in the afternoon (4PM). I have kept my calories I take down to 1000 calories and have been very strict with. I have not gotten started with my exercise yet. The only side effects I have experienced have been dry and sower mouth, some constipation, and only sleeping about 6 hours at the beginning. I am pleased with my progress so far!

Tenuate (diethylpropion): I took Tenuate 25mg 5 years ago for 6 months and lost 55 pounds. After hurting my foot and not being able to exercise I gained back most of the weight over a five year period. My doctor gave it to me again in May of 2013 and I have lost 45 pounds. I weaned myself off of it and am maintaining my weight now with diet and exercise. I love my doctor for suggesting this for "women my age" (40s)!! It works great!!

diethylpropion: This is the most honest review I can give about this medicine. Its amazing. I have been on it for one month and have lost 1 stone and 3 pounds. I go to the gym 4 times a week and I am on a controlled calorie diet. Please ensure that you eat breakfast first then take it 10 minutes later to ensure that the tablet is effective. I find sometimes the medicine wears off by 7pm so I try and take this pill late mornings to ensure I don't get hungry. At the end of the day, this pill does help but you can only really help yourself. Make sure you exercise regularly. You have to put in effort to get excellent results. This is not a miracle pill.

Tenuate (diethylpropion): I was just placed on Tenuate 2 days ago by my physician. I have tried many weight loss options but have had no success. I just have no will power. I am an RN, and reading about this medication I must say that I am going into it a little frightened. But, if you all can do it...so can I! I was so motivated by your many success stories, I hope that I can be one to post one also. My first day mirrored some in that the dry mouth and jitters are what bothered me. I don't think I will be able to take the medication at work. That will be okay, I don't have much time to think about food anyway. Lol! Best of Luck to you all!!!

diethylpropion: I have been on Diehtylpropion for exactly one month now. When I was originally prescribed Diethylpropion I was a little disappointed because I have heard such great things about Phentermine. The doctor explained why Diehtylpropion was more suited for me because of my anxiety issues. The first few days of taking it I did have elevated anxiety, but that ceased after about day 3. My starting weight was 230lbs, 5'7" and exactly one month later I am at 214. I keep my calorie content under 900 and lift a half hour of weights every other day and use the eliptical every once in a while. I have a desk job so I do not get any exercise at work. My goal weight is 170lbs by May so I'm 1/4 of the way there!

diethylpropion: I have recently started taking Diethylpropion 75mg extended release capsule and have lost 31lbs in 7 weeks...very very happy as you can imagine. I now wait until late morning before taking pill otherwise find that by mid afternoon the suppressant has worn off, I follow a very low carb diet but to be honest I haven't exercised that much. The only side effect that I have found is a slightly dry mouth but this made me increase my water intake. I have now stopped my pills due to being near my 'happy weight' (133lbs + 5'3") and am finding that I have remained in control (probably due to stomach having shrunk slightly) and have not gained any weight. I aim to allow myself flexibility of 7lbs either side of my current weight. Great pill!!

Tenuate (diethylpropion): Hi, everyone I wanted to wait until I finish the entire bottle, before I came and did a review. So I went to my doctor who is awesome and she put me on Tenuate. My starting weight was 210 lbs, I started my first pill on May 24, 2013. I will be honest in my review. I started the week off strong eating right, exercising twice a day, making sure I stay within my 1200 calories daily. The exercises I did was walking and fitness blender. I made sure I drank plenty of water and the first week I lost 6.2 lbs. I was so excited and that push me to keep going that second week I lost 3 lbs and third week I lost 3lbs and so forth. As of now I'm 195.8lbs. I love this pill.

diethylpropion: I've taken these for approximately 18 months and I have lost 10 stone 11lbs (as of this morning). I love them. I don't get any side effects really aside from occasionally unable to sleep for longer than 5/6 hours. I'm more focused, procrastination isn't even in my vocabulary and I am feeling amazing - only 3 more stone to go and I am there - ALL THANKS TO Diethylpropion.

Tenuate (diethylpropion): Tenuate is the best. After having my second child in April 2012 I blew up to a whopping 300 pounds. In October of 2012 I went to my doctor and he tried me on Tenuate for 1 month. This was the best decision ever. Tenuate not only controlled my appetite, it helped me eat smaller portion. I had a 30 day supply and made it last for 2 months. By December I went down to 280lbs. In January I started counting my calories on my own without the help of pills and its mid February now I'm down to 250. Tenuate showed me how I should eat and it may have "shrunk" my stomach. I also walk a mile every day, which helped speed up my weight loss process. If I can do it, you can too. Good Luck.

diethylpropion: I've just started taking the pills for only four days and I'm down 7.2 lbs! I am a heavy binge eater but I haven't done so since I've been taking the pills. Love them ..so far no side effects ..no heart racing or anything. I was prescribed 75 mg and told to take two a day. I've only been taking one a day ! Will up the dosage after day seven. I'll be back with an update!.also I have to remind myself to eat..force myself really. It's definitely an appetite suppressant

Tenuate (diethylpropion): I have been on Tenuate for a year and at first I was losing weight fast (30lbs) and looked great but by 6 months I had stopped losing so my dr took me off it for 3 months. I got back on after I gained back 20 of the 30lbs lost. This was during summer and I have two kids I'm constantly chasing. I've been back on Tenuate for 3 months and I have gained another 6lbs WHILE ON TENUATE!!! I have a healthy diet and exercise regularly. So, if you want to lose weight for a specific occasion this med is great for you but if you want something to help you keep it off....this might not be it.

Tenuate (diethylpropion): I was prescribed to phentermine last year and had amazing results but I lost it so quickly I gained it back. So my doctor re prescribed it to me and for some odd odd reason I had the worlds worst side effects so he put me on Tenuate. So far, in the past oh say 6 days I have felt...normal. which is a good thing. I'm not eating as much and definitely am enjoying working out! This pill is awesome. Though when I went to the doctor I was 147 I don't plan on weighing myself until I go back or my pants start falling loose (because that'll get me extra curious). I definitely feel though that I have possibly lost a a few pounds, hope so. I recommend this pill to anyone who wants to lose weight and not feel like a crack head like you will on phentermine!

diethylpropion: I am writing my experience on this page because it was all I read here that gave me the courage to start taking the medicine. I started taking this 10 weeks ago and I have shed off 10kg of weight! In the first 2 weeks, I took 75mg regularly in the morning. Then I realized that I get hungry towards 4pm. Then I break the tablet into 2, thereby taking it twice a day. In the past 2 weeks, I have taken only half a tablet daily (around midday) and I am still shedding an average of a kg per week. I am now 94kg, hoping to reach my target weight of 84kg by end of the year.

diethylpropion: After 3 beautiful children I found myself struggling to lose weight. I never gained more weight but I just couldn't lose it. I was 215 pounds for 5 years after the birth of my last child. I have always been muscular so it wasn't sloppy weight, but I wanted my pre-childbearing body back. I am only 5'3" tall and I didn't like that according to BMI charts I am considered obese. The first day taking this I was 217 pounds, today I am 186. I have gone from a size 14 to a 10. My only struggle so far has been maintaining muscle mass. Make sure you adopt healthy eating and drinking habits (lots of hidden calories in juices, soda, etc.), and get up and burn calories. Use it as a stepping stone not a crutch, good luck!

Tenuate Dospan (diethylpropion): I have taken Tenuate for 2 months now and lost almost 20 pounds. This is HUGE for me as I had tried and failed to lose weight -any weight- on my own for years. In addition to helping me lose weight, on it I have more energy and a better mood, so I did some research and found that the medicine apparently also works on increasing the serotonin in the brain. Good stuff - I've been very happy with it.
