For Obesity: "I am 5 feet tall and weighed 220 pounds at my highest weight, then I dropped 10 pounds with exercise and diet but plateaued. I started Phentermine on 4/19/2016 and weighed 210 and on 4/26/2016 I weighed in at 201.5!!! That's 8.5 pounds in a week! So excited to see what the next couple months bring for me!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "Excellent experience so far, was on for 2 1/2 months and lost ~30 lbs. Really HELPS you control your food intake. You can push through and eat though, but its much much much easier to control yourself when you know you should stop eating but have that bottomless pit feeling in your stomach, or if you are just someone that eats when bored or emotional."

For Weight Loss: "Hello all, my name is Brittany. I have PCOS and have struggled with my weight my entire life. I started Phentermine June of 2015. I thought it was some miracle drug, which it is not. So don't go in thinking it will cure fatness. I didn't take it consistently, or workout like I should have. So I quit all together. Although I still struggle, I have a different mindset now. I started my journey again Jan 13, 2016 at 274, then started Phentermine Feb 22, 2016 at 269lbs. I did a lot of slacking that month, so when I went in for my 3/31 check up I weighed 258. I lost more that that, then I gained. As of this morning I weighed 247lbs. I now have more realist goals, aiming for 1-2lbs a week. will check for update."

For Obesity: "I've lost 53lbs on this product, I started at 265ish now I weight 214.4. Along with a balloon I got put in my stomach but it wasn't helping 1 month after having the balloon I only lost 10lbs and that was just from the surgery and I got sick because of it. It ended up giving me pancreatitis and was in the hospital for 4 days. After that another month went by and my doctor proscribed me phenamine and lost tons of weight! I got off for a month and he proscribed it to me for another month. I'm on my second day of the second round 30 day ct. and I've lost 2 lbs in 2 days. Over all it's a good product. But the side effects are terrible!!! I have really dry mouth and very anger. The first time I took it I almost committed suicide but didn't."

For Weight Loss: "I just started this for the 2nd time the first time I only took it for a month right before I got married 6 years ago.... I shortly after stopped going to the weight dr. I had been on adderall for the same thing for almost 2 years and hit a plateau right around 190 to 180 and moved away so I hadn't been back til now. Upon weighing in I was informed I gained back 20 lbs sitting at 211lb and only 5'6". I have noticed I have been way more energized last couple of days and basically have to force myself to eat now. 1st day I had 2 bites of yogurt with granola for breakfast... a handful of wheat thins for lunch and a boudin link for dinner. And not once felt hungry I started feeling loopy for lack of calories by the end of the day..."

For Obesity: "So this is day one for me.. I am 5'6 228 lbs. Dr. told me to loose 30 lbs by the end of the year. I am hoping to loose more than that honestly by the reviews. I have seen some HORRID reviews and some great but I guess its up to me to essentially know how I'll feel. So I did half a pill today and I will continue this for 4 days then upgrade to the full Monty."

For Weight Loss: "Your stories have eased my nervousness today. Today I was prescribed Phentermine by my doctor and was told it was an amphetamine. I was instantly on alert. I have never been a pill popper, so up to an hour ago i had my doubts, scared and my mind was going through the what if's. Diet and exercise just isn't enough anymore however so I must try a new angle. I am excited now to know some of the weight loss goals you all have met and achieved. WOW!. I can't weight (lol) to pick up my script tomorrow. so I am 5'3" weighing in at 206 and my goal is 140 anything less and I will look too thin but i'll figure that out if and when I make my goal. wish me luck and maybe by my birthday in December ( the big 50) i will be in a bikini. Oh! Yah!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine 37.5 last Saturday 4/16 so hasn't been a week yet. I did lost my appetite I barley eat anything. Trying to stick around 500 Carlories per day. I have PCOS and last blood work that I got done my insulin levels were out of control. I am on 1500 mg of metformin also. My start weight was 180lbs I weight myself at home this morning and it was 176lbs but I don't think my scale at home is right so I will just wait to go in 4 weeks for an follow up with my doctor and see if I lost any weight. My goal weight is around 130 lbs. No Side effects besides the dry mouth. Will keep you guys updated."

For Obesity: "Well, I'm on Day 5 of taking phentermine, and I could be more pleased. Dry mouth is driving me nuts, but I can deal with it. My Biotene mouth spray came in. The mouthwash helps for a little while. I'm expecting some saliva-producing tabs to come in tomorrow. Other than that, I have had no problems. Appetite is pretty much gone. The two eggs I just had after coming home from work seem like I ate a five-course meal. Now for the good news! I weighed 266 this morning... down four pounds in four days. I'm hoping for two pounds a week, so this first week has me ecstatic! I'll check in again at the end of he week."

For Weight Loss: "I began taking phentermine three days ago. The only side effect I have experienced has been dry mouth. Biotene mouthwash and mouth spray have helped along with lots of water. My appetite is suppressed greatly, which is wonderful. My biggest issue has been snacking late at night. My nights have not been filled with thoughts of restaurants and gourmet meals. I'm not much of a sweets eater; I love good cooking. I didn't even crave anything for the past couple of nights. It's been two days, and I'm down three pounds already. I weighed in at Weight Watchers today, and I'm exactly 270 today. I'll update in a week. Feeling excited!"

For Obesity: "I am 24, 5'9" and at 282 I'm the biggest I've ever been. I started taking this medication (Phentermine ) on Monday 4/11/16. For four days I only took half a pill, today is my first whole pill. So far my appetite and cravings are gone, which I have to force myself to eat on account of my diabetes. I am on 2 different medications for my diabetes, one for acid reflux and one for depression. I'm doing great, with only taking a half pill for four days I've lost 2 pounds. I've started some small exercises and eating better. I can't wait to see what happens now that I take a whole one. I'm really hoping in the end I don't have to take anymore medications."

For Weight Loss: "Hey everyone! I found all of these post super helpful! I just started phentermine 37.5 yesterday 04/12/2016 and I'm super excited to see how it will work for me. I currently weigh 248 and it drives me crazy that I let myself gain so much weight. I have always been smaller in size & I gained a lot of weight fast. I first tried toprimate but I took myself off of it because it made my face and hands feel like the pins & needles after your foot falls asleep! So far with phentermine I have had a super dry mouth, hopefully that is the only side effect I have to deal with. I will re post in about a month with my progress. Wish me luck!!!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I was on phentermine several years ago but didn't really try to change my eating habits and so it didn't work. I decided to try it again because I just keep piling on the weight and am slowly killing myself. I've been on it 3 days now and have already lost 8.4 pounds! I know it's mostly water weight right now but seeing that scale move so quickly is such a big motivator. My starting weight was 443.8 and now I'm 435.4. I eat between 1200-2000 calories per day. I've noticed that I'm eating less each day though and it helps take away the cravings so I can make smart decisions about what to eat. I am also watching my carbs and sugar intake. Only side effect I've had is mild dry mouth and not feeling sleepy during the day like I normally do."

For Weight Loss: "Growing up I was always skinny with age I've gained and now weigh about 220. Although I do have curves that I didn't have before the extra weight is a lil depressing. I started adipex a lil over a week ago. I haven't weighed myself yet but I don't see any significant change. I'd like to get down to 170 or 175 but as long as I can get the extra fat off in the areas I want & stay healthy I'd be satisfied with that. I exercise a little bit but not much and I need to drink more water than what I an now. Wish me luck."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I took Adipex two years ago and loss 70 pounds! I'm 5'11 and went from size 20 to size 10/12. Dont let that 1-2 pounds per week loss without exercising fool you into thinking you dont have to. You should at least walk every day or some sweat producing exercise 3-4 days or week to get the most out of it. I used the seated elliptical 4-5 days per week. Its quick if you commit to exercise, water and the meds. No eating after 800pm. I've lost from 2lbs to 21pounds per month with exercise. I've gained 20 pounds back over the two years and am now wearing a 14. I went back on Adipex a month and a half ago and plan to get down to a 10/12 by June 30th. ;-)"
