For Weight Loss: I am 19 years old, 5'3. The very first time I took this was back in January of this year. Took the 30mg. My start weight was 180lbs, that's the highest I've ever been. I took it almost everyday, worked out regularly, but I didn't eat so well. Somehow I managed to go down to 170lbs by the time I finished the 30 pills in the bottle. I took it in the month of March and went down to 165lbs and then I stopped taking it for a while. I just went back on it, doing the 37.5mg now. Start date 07/22/14 weighing in at 165lbs and today I am 161lbs.

For Weight Loss: This medicine has been so helpful for me. I am 44 years old and have struggled with my weight my whole life but was able to maintain my weight until I had my fourth child via cesarean section. I started on phentermine on 07/15/2014 weighing in at 250 pounds and as of today, 07/25/2014, I have lost 8.2 pounds. I am also counting calories doing 1200 per day.

For Obesity: UPDATE STARTING MONTH 3 I started at 250lbs now my weight is 216lbs. I've lost 34 pounds so far, I'm excited feeling so much better about myself at first. I was doing T25 but my doctor got after me said I had to lose weight not built muscle, he said to only walk 20 minutes a day not very happy with that because I would like to do more intense workouts but if it helps to lose weight I guess I should follow it.

For Weight Loss: I am 39 years old and I have been trying to flatten my stomach ever since I had my last child 15 years ago. I will admit I do love food! I heard about using Phentermine from a friend of mine, and I thought to myself, wow this might actually be what I am looking for! So I made a doctors appointment and she gave me a script for this on June 6th 2014 and I got it filled and started right away, I was told to start out using only half, so I did and didn't feel that it was working using only half so the next day I started taking 1 whole pill. I can say that it was all good, and to date I have not had any side effects. When I started using this medication I weighed a wooping 186!! and today 7/23/14 I am at 168, & want to be about 140.

For Weight Loss: I was signed up to have the gastric sleeve procedure done but cancelled a few days prior wanting to try again to lose the weight on my own. I was 245 pounds March 28th and am 5'5. I started Phentermine shortly after that. I am currently 209lbs and it is July 22nd. Very happy with the results. Glad I didn't have the operation even if I would be skinner now the risks were just too scary for me to go through with it. I would love to get down to 160lbs! I am going to keep chugging along.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started off on the highest mg which is 37.5 and it has worked very well for me. In my first month I had lost 26lbs and in 6 months, I lost a total of 90lbs. I DID NOT EAT HEALTHY NOR DID I EXERCISE. I took a break from it a couple of months back because it's not safe to take it for an extended period of time due to the fact that it takes a toll on your liver. I just got back on it again yesterday. It will cause you to have DRY MOUTH, CONSTIPATION, URGES TO DRINK LOTS OF WATER, ENERGY, ABILITY TO STAY FOCUSED, INSOMNIA, FAST HEART RATE, MOOD SWINGS, NAUSEA AND EASES BODY PAIN. I have a heart murmur and panic attacks so after taking this medication, I notice it gets harder for me to breath as the day goes by.

For Weight Loss: I'm a 24 year old single mother, and diet and exercise was never in my vocabulary. However, I am the heaviest I have ever been. (weighed less when I was 9 months pregnant). I have taken phentermine 37.5mg once before and I had no idea what to expect. I know that this is not a magic pill, but more of a booster. I've lost 25 pounds within a month, worked out, ate less and consumed more water and cut out sodas and fast food. Was able to wear smaller clothes and the confidence came back. I'm back on it again starting yesterday 7/17/14, and hope I get the same results as last time. My side effects were dry mouth, feeling a little more irritated, heart was going fast, the feeling to constantly move. Smoked constantly. Good luck everyone

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started taking Adipex on July 15, and I must say I have definitely seen a difference in my eating habits and it's only been 3 days! Amazing! I was 127lbs in 2012 and somewhere along the line I lost the will to work out and stay fit. Needless to say I gained about 35lbs since then so I am giving Adipex a try and it's doing wonders for my appetite! I experienced dry mouth the first day and that's the only side affect I have had. I eat a yogurt for lunch and dinner is 2 turkey sandwiches on wheat bread, and I drink 2-3 bottles of water a day. Eating right and exercise are key to helping drop weight quicker! Once you stop taking the pill you must maintain good eating habits along with exercise or the weight will come back plus more!

For Weight Loss: I can really say that I was nervous starting this pill because I read the reviews and didn't want to experience the side effects. I just started this pill on Tuesday, 7/8/14 and it has now been exactly one week and one day. I started weighing 188.6 and as of today, Wednesday, 7/16/14 I weighed in at 180.4. So that makes a total of 8.2 pounds lost in just one week and and day. I normally work out but I didn't work out for this entire week purposely just to see how much weight I would lose without my daily exercise. I did however maintain my healthy meal plan and I drink 1/2 to 1 gallon of water daily. I am 25 years old and 5'10. I haven't experienced any side effects (knocks on wood so I wont begin to experience them, best wishes to all!

For Weight Loss: In my last post, I had lost 8lb in 2.5 weeks. Starting weight was 181lbs, I currently weigh 168. I have been on Phentermine for about 6 weeks. I have had a busy summer, in which I would usually gain weight however, I have continued to lose even though my busy schedule makes it hard to work out every day. Currently down 13 lbs! I will begin to increase my workout schedule as I am not as busy anymore. Hoping to lose another 10-15lbs within the next 8 weeks (maybe more!).

For Obesity: I started this pill in late Feb 2014 and my starting weight was 224lbs. I haven't been faithful in taking it I've missed many months due to the fact that it's very expensive. But, since taking it and along with cutting back on how much I eat (haven't really exercised) I'm down to 186lbs. There's a huge difference in my appearance and the way I feel. It's also given me more energy. The only downside is that when I'm not using the pill I don't have much energy but that might just be me. I didn't gain while not taking it either.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been on this medicine for nearly one week. I have lost 8lbs since starting this medicine. I take half a dose on a empty stomach and then drink protein drinks both for breakfast and lunch. Then eat a light supper and been eating about 1100 calories or less a day. I go to the gym about 3 to 4 time a week. I have noticed every day a change in my weight. I haven't had any side effects my blood pressure been running great. I don't experience any nausea or vomiting with this medicine while working out. I am planning taking this medicine for 1 month and then taking rest and start it again.

For Weight Loss: I was prescribed Phentermine for weight loss as I was about 70 lbs overweight. I'd been struggling for 18 yrs with depression and anxiety from a traumatic event and even though the doctors prescribed antidepressants and anti anxiety meds, I still felt lost and sometimes suicidal. Within about 20 minutes after taking my first phentermine pill, I felt absolutely "normal" again. Imagine 18 yrs of struggling, not being able to focus, falling behind at work and at home, losing track of my thoughts and not able to hold a decent conversation then a weight loss medication gave me back my life. As for the weight loss, I changed my eating habits, stopped drinking soda and lost 18 lbs within three months.

For Obesity: I have been on phentermine for 16 days today and have lost 15 pounds. I too have cut out carbs and usually walk 3 to 4 times a week! The only side effect I've had is the dry mouth, just drink a water and everything's fine. Can't wait to see my results after a couple months.

For Weight Loss: My experience was successful! I started the pill on 03-26-14 at which time I was 287 lbs, by 04-30-14, I dropped down to 276 lbs. I must say it really suppresses the appetite and I recommend that you eat at least breakfast daily to avoid getting headaches and feeling nausea. Altough, I did have those side effects, I do recommend eating something again as stated preferably breakfast. The last time I weighed myself I wore 266, however, because I am no longer eating healthy and taking the pill when I remember to take one I notice I have gained some of the weight back as my pcp indicated I would. All in all Phentermine is great if you are going to adjust to permenant lifestyle changes / eating behaviors.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: I gained 57 pounds since Oct. 2012. I was in a accident that broke my legs and was also in a unhealthy relationship with a food addict. I am just starting this medication but feel great. I am on a strict diet and exercise program plus drinking 80oz of water a day. I am hoping I will be back to my normal 125-130 self soon!

For Obesity: I was seen by my Dr. on June 30th and she stated I was overweight due to my current height. I was in the obese stage. Anyways I've started taking this medication on July 1st, starting weight 198.7 and as of July 7th I weigh 190. Within 7 days I've lost 8.7 lbs. I can not believe these results. I can just imagine the weeks to come. I extremely excited and I'm looking forward to this new lifestyle.

For Weight Loss: 4 and half weeks in, starting weight 14.3 now weighing 13.5 nearly lost a stone. Haven't changed my diet dramatically just make sure I have breakfast every morning, starting to feel hungry again now though as still on 15mg. I'll see my doctor in 2 weeks hoping for next dosage.

For Weight Loss: I have a great before and after picture that I can't post on here, but in two months on phentermine (first month 15mg, second month (30mg--and I'm not even done with this month's bottle!) I have lost 19lbs. I am trying to make wise food choices and I hike, but as a single mom I don't have loads of time to go to the gym etc. I feel so good about myself. My goal is to lose 35 more lbs to reach 150lbs and then maintain that. Honestly, I eat breakfast, and then I nibble here and there, but I'm just not hungry at all. The dry mouth is pretty rough, including the horrendous breath it causes (I carry gum and little mouthwash bottles). I'm also on Wellbutrin 300mg for clinical depression, but I was on that for months without a single pound lost.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started Fastin 30mg from my doctor on May 19 2014. You need to change your lifestyle not just pop a pill and be done with it. Because if you don't change, the weight will return. I started at 285lbs in one month I lost 25lbs and feel great. I changed myself with habit changes and exercise. I told myself that when this weight is gone it's staying gone, so I change my lifestyle and you can do the same.
