For Weight Loss: Started diet on 4/12 (236.8 lbs) using my fitness pal app 1200 calorie diet. Lost 8.3 in 7 days. Began Pentermine on 4/21 (228.8lbs) today is 5/5 and I'm down 14lbs from Phentermine 22.5 lbs total since 4/12. Goal weight is 175lbs. Last seven days I lost 4.4lbs so the weight loss slows down after the first weeks. I've been running 3 miles every other day and workout 3-4x a week. Drink plenty of water. Goal weight 175lbs. I'm on a 600 cal a day diet and I rarely go beyond 450 calories. No side effects, I take weekly pics, huge difference even over the last 7 days, I look 10 years younger already. I'm 45.

For Obesity: I started taking phentermine in the beginning of January, my 40th birthday was April 5, I started it 206 pounds and I cannot believe that I would ever be that big. My goal by my 40th birthday was to be down to 170 pounds and I made it to 172. As of today I am 165 pounds and when I started I was considered obese. I am now only 10 pounds above being within a normal wait for my height on the BMI scale. I will be taking my son to Jamaica on June 5 for his graduation! And I cannot believe the results I've had on this medication. I'm not blind to the fact that gaining the weight back is a real possibility! It scares me! But I'll pray with dedication, Exercise, and learning to eat right, I will be successful! My phentermine phase is done and I will keep up the good eating and exercise

Review by After the Implanon nightmare...:

User Rating:

For Weight Loss: I gained about 35 pounds from Implanon and couldn't seem to lose the weight after I got it removed. I tried for almost a year with absolutely no results until my doctor prescribed me phentermine. This is the first time in over a year in seeing the number on the scale go down!!! I'm still on my first week, so I'll post again once I'm done with this medication. I highly recommend and the only downfall is sleeplessness at night but I just take some supplements to help with that.

For Weight Loss: WOW, I am 27yrs, 5'5, and weighted in at 196lbs, and I just started taking the meds on Monday plus I have been going to the gym to tone up my body, now before I even weigh myself again, I just wanted to say, You ladies have some amazing stories with taking 37.5 and Congratulations to you all with your weight loss success. Hopefully when I get back on the scale I will at least be back to my normal weight at 160 lbs (Goal results on May 23rd) will give updates!!!

For Weight Loss: I started 15 months ago on Phentermine. I originally weighed 312lbs and had gastric bypass surgery 3/98. I lost 162lbs and felt great.Over the past 8 years,I managed to put 50lbs back on.Not hard to do when your eating junk. The mg were increased after a few months to 30mg and then to 37.5.To date I have lost 50lbs but It worries me to see so much weight loss in so little time from some of you. I am on a food plan that my doctor set up for me. She gave me a list of great foods, good foods and if your going to eat these foods, dont do it often.LOL. I want to keep it off and be able to eat like a real person.I know if I dont eat because I want to lose it fast, for me,I will gain it back.I eat 5-6 meals a day and it works.

For Obesity: In one year, taking phentermine for three months on three months off, I lost 112 pounds! This was on the 37.5mg daily with some diet and exercise change after the first month. But in the first month with no change at all I lost 22 lbs. This medication changed my life.

Review by Stoood:

For Weight Loss: I was just prescribed Phentermine by my doctor. I will start tomorrow. I'm 33 and 5 foot tall weight 197 lbs. I have had 2 children in the last 3 years and this second one I had 4 months ago, well the weight just won't come off. I do weight watchers and it worked the first round, this one...not so much. So I will do both, I take a lot of walks during the day at work but at home it's mommy mode and I barely get a minute to myself so exercising is tough. I know excuses excuses but it's true haha. I'm excited to get back to my weight at 26 which was 127, my goal is to be 130...or just comfortable in my clothes and looking good in the mirror. I hope to see results, for me, my future and my children. I want to be a active mom!

For Weight Loss: I started phen on 4\22\2015 with a starting weight of 226, I am a 5'8 female with PCOS trying to loose weight for health and personal issues. As of 4\28\2015 my weight is now 214. Honestly I am not sure if it's the pills doing or the combination of eating better,(totally cutting out carbs ,sugars) and exercising 3 days to 1 day off. But it's working and I'm happy with the results The only thing I have noticed is dry mouth and heart palpitations. But I notice when I work out after taking the pill I don't notice them. I have been experiencing hunger pains as well. I'm only on the 15mg dose so maybe that's why it doesn't curb my appetite like it's supposed to. Overall I'm pleased and will continue to loose weight. End goal, 140

For Weight Loss: My initial weigh in was 175.0lbs and I am 5' 7". I have been on oral steroids for a herniated disc for almost a year. Then new scans revealed two herniated disc, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease that now I am having steroid injections. Well with all of these steroids I have put on a hefty 35lbs. I was prescribed Phentermine 37.5mg for three months on 4/20/15. I began taking them on 4/21/15 and with a combination of no appetite, watching what I do eat, exercising... I have lost 5.5lbs in five days! I can't wait to get my old self back! Hope everyone is doing just as well!

For Weight Loss: My initial Dr appt was on February 23, 2015. I was at exactly 250 lbs., 5'2", 28 years old and have a 6 year old son. In the month of March, I lost an amazing 12 lbs., in the first 3 weeks!!! I didn't have the finances the following month and a half, but I went back yesterday (4-24-15). All in all, it works. My first month I was prescribed one 37.5MG tablet a day. With this being my "2nd" month with no significant weight loss (bc of my 7 weeks of no meds), I am now prescribed 1&1/2, 37.5MG tablets a day. One tablet when I wake up, half of a tablet 5 hrs after that. Will check back with results!! My side effects-dry mouth, some sleeplessness, occasional agitation (very seldom), amazing weight loss!!!!!

For Weight Loss: I started Phentermine 37.5mg on 4/16/2015. Starting weight 209, I weighed myself today 4/25/2015 196.8, lost 12.2 . To be honest nothing in life is easy, you have to put in the work.I workout 6 days a week,eating right as well. I don't feel any different however am aware of how am going about losing weight not depending on the pills only, rather workingout and eating healthy for a lifestyle change.

For Weight Loss: I'm an 18yr old female, I used to weigh 115lbs and absolutely loved my body and and then over the past year had some stressful things happen and I gained 35 pounds. Tomorrow will be one week since I started phentermine, I love it so far. I could count all of the food I've eaten on one hand since I started and I used to go from eating out at least once a day sometimes up to three times a day and now I have no desire. If someone offered to take me to my favorite restaurant for free I would turn it down because I literally have no appetite. Only bad thing is without eating I feel a little dizzy and out of energy sometimes but it's so worth the energy boost in the morning and loss of appetite.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started Adipex 4/16 exactly 6 days ago. I started at 181lbs I am now down to 176.4lbs. I have had occasional headaches and dry mouth, but as long as I keep losing this weight I need to lose I can deal with it. My goal is to lose all my pregnancy weight I put on with my second baby. 28 more pounds to go!!

For Weight Loss: I'm 5'5 starting weight 189 I started taking 37.5mg on 04/18 starting with half and alternating with whole and half pills each day. Serious dry mouth! But it really works I'm not hungry, I've been eating smaller and much much less. Snacking has was an issue for me but haven't touched cookies or snacks!!! I've been drinking water only no desire for juice or soda The first two days I experienced headaches I believe were the lack of food/nutrients. But Monday and Tuesday I've been taking women's multi-vitamins 1hr 1/2 to 2hrs before pill and headaches have gone. Already a night owl so this didn't help. But gives tremendous energy, so much so I don't even yawn throughout the day. I'm going to weigh myself Saturday to see what I've loss.

For Weight Loss: I went to the doctor because I felt that for my height which is 5'7, 184 pounds I was overweight. I started the pill 4-13-15 at 184lbs today 4-21-15 I'm at 175lbs. This pill really works. I'll check back in at the end of the week to tell more results.

Review by Tra2594 (taken for less than 1 month):

For Weight Loss: I gained a lot of weight after being on pain medicines. I mean ALOT, I am down 40 but have 38 pounds to go, my MD put me on phentermine and its great, but the whole 37.5mg is very strong. I take half everyday since Sunday, he didn't give me a diet to go with it. I am wondering if anyone else got a diet plan? I am looking forward to losing this last remaining weight before my 44 bday ( July 2015).
