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. ;-)"

For Obesity: "On 3/17/16 I weighed in at 288.8(at home), this is the heaviest I've even been and said thats it, I have got to get this weight off. So I started really watching what and how much I was eating and tracking my calories and carbs. I also made and appointment with my doc. Today I weighed in at 283.8(at home)and was shocked I did that on my own. I went to my appointment this morning and my doctor prescribed Phentermine 30 mg. I took it this morning and shortly after started feeling more energetic. I'm excited to see if this will increase my weight loss and help with the hunger and cravings. I also purchased a Fitbit and am trying to do more exercising and walking but having issue with shin splints big time, UGH! I'll update in a few weeks!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I was prescribed Apidex today 03/07/2016. I have taken my first pill so I really can't say right now. I weighed in on today at 278.6 pounds. I am 5ft. I am 45 years old. I am also taking a water pill called lasix because of fluid retention so I am looking forward to sharing my progress. I will go weigh in two weeks just to see. I have also decided no breads no sodas no red meats no fried foods and sweets. Praying for some results. Going to start walking on 03/10/16 to see what results I can see in two weeks."

For Weight Loss: "This is my second time around with Phentermine 37.5mg. 5 yrs ago I lost 38 lbs in 5 weeks. I stayed on a high protein low card diet (chicken, chicken and more chicken) and 1 pill a day, with 1 cheat meal a week. Unfortunately, I gained the weight back because of self stupidity. I started again 4/5/16 with Phentermine once a day with a B12 vitamin concoction injection once a week at weigh in at the doc's office. This time I'm adding cardio/swimming/weight training 4 days a week. I experienced no side effects, I have no appetite, cravings and lot's of energy. I take my pill after breakfast, about 11:30/noon to ward off the late night snack attacks and still allows me to go to bed around 11pm. I highly recommend this medication."

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "This pill is the devil!! Don't do it!!!! I have seriously considered contacting the FDA to have it removed from the shelves! Made me feel completely out of control of my body and sick to my stomach to the point I had to lay down and hope I wasn't having a heart attack! Don't buy this crap!!"

For Obesity: "I started phentermine on 04/01/2016. Female/43/5'6/Beginning weight 307. I have had issues with mild headaches and dry mouth but not to the point its not tolerable. I find the medication gives me energy and my heart rate has increase (again its tolerable). I'm currently taking 37.5 mg a day. I have found for me the most effective way to take it is 1/2 in the mornings and the 2nd half no later then 1pm. I have changed my calorie intake to 1200 a day. I cut reg soda, which is my addiction, and switched to diet soda and water. I joined the gym yesterday so I start my workout today. My short term goal is 20lbs in a month, mid goal is down 50lbs by July and long term goal is 100lbs off within a year."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started taking Adipex on 02.25.2016. My beginning weight was 235 pounds and as of today, I weight 211.4. So far I have lost 23.6 pounds. This medicine does work. My doctor was not happy with my weight gain since I have been out of work due to an injury on the job and prescribed this medicine to me to help me lose weight. Working out does help. I probably would have more weight off of me but dealing with a neck and back injury does limit the ability to workout quite a bit. I have had one side effect from this medicine, dry mouth! I drink a ton of water now! I cannot stand the taste of sodas anymore since I have been drinking water for so long."

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "So I was taking phentermine for a month and lost 15 pounds. I stopped taking it because it cost too much every two weeks to go to doctor and get medication. I googled pills like phentermine and this one came up. The pills look the same except phentermine is smaller. I took half a pill of fastin instead of the whole thing and it feels stronger than a whole pill of phentermine. So if you're new to this pill I would do only one pill a day and split it in two. It works as an appetite suppressant and and energy booster. I definitely would recommend this. But please take only one pilll a day instead of two and split it in half."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started taking adipex on 11/14-4/15 and without diet and exercise I instantly lost 25 lbs. I weighed 150lb (only being 5'2) , by the end of the first month I was down to 126lb , my goal being 125lb. I stopped for a while and ended up gaining all but 3lbs back. Now I am back on it and I'm excited to see where I'll be a month from now. The side effects I have had both times is dry mouth, shakes, and short temper. I'll report back in about a month, maybe sooner."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking phentermine 03/29 at 241.6lbs. I was 265lbs in 2010 and lost weight naturally and went to the gym and got down to 211lbs and got lazy and the weight has crept back up. I didn't think the Rx would work but today 03/30 I was 237.6 after just 1 day. I worked out for 2hrs on my 1st day and had to leave because I was so nauseous. I got a headache and nausea on day 1 and could barely eat. Today was day 2 and my head has been hurting and I've been nauseous for over 10hrs and couldn't go to workout. I am taking 37.5mg I'm the mornings. I read the headache may be hunger or dehydration so I forced down an Apple and naked chicken breast but it was hard to get down and symptoms didn't go away. I'm gonna try to stick with it."

For Weight Loss: "OK, this is actually my 2nd time taking Phentermine. I took it 3 yrs ago and lost approximately 32lbs in 3 mths but however I thought I did a good job trying to maintain my eating habits. After 3yrs off of phen I slowly gained 20 lbs. I'm here to say that phen is a TERRIFIC JUMP start to help you learn healthy eating HABITS. However after using Phen the weight will in deed creep back on you....So here today I have been on phen for almost 3 weeks my starting weight was 170.0.... I am now at 156....so about 15lbs off in 3 weeks!!!!! So this time around I'm going to appreciate the Phen JUMP START TO weight-loss, and MAINTAIN a healthier lifestyle this time around. Phen does the work at , but it's up to you to maintain your healthier lifestyle"

For Weight Loss: "I have been doing research on Phentermine for a few weeks and spoken with my provider several times. Today she wrote me a prescription for it and I signed my drug contract. Nervous as that I could become addicted but I am getting married in 5 months. I thought within the past year and a half I could have lost some weight but I have only gained. Working out and eating right has done nothing like it did in high school. Today March 28th I weigh 218 pounds and I am 5'3".. I am off to get my prescription and start it in the morning!!! Please pray I see some results. :) God Bless!"

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Today is March 26, 2016. Today was my first day taking fastin, I was scared out of my wits when I first tried one this morning before breakfast, I waited for all the bad adverse effects that I had been hearing about, but nothing bad happened even after my second afternoon dose. It made me kind of sleepy for the first hour or so, then my energy kicked into overdrive! No side effects what-so-ever, unless not eating is a side effect. I can't wait until in the morning for day number two! I'll keep you guys posted...keep in mind I kept clear of all caffeine, because these things are loaded with caffeine as is. I didn't get a chance to weigh in yet, so I'll update you on my weight also."
