For Weight Loss: "A little background: I am 23, and prior to starting the medication I struggled to lose weight one or two pounds a month and would always immediately gain back. I started Phen. 37.5 On October 9, 2015 with a starting weight of 226.8 and just had my first weight check at doc on November 13, 2015 and I am now 210.3! I have been doing very light exercise 45 minutes 2x a week and have cut out fast food, still eat pretty much the same foods however with a focus on portion control, and the only beverage I consume is water sometimes adding in a sugar free drink packet. The only side effect I have experienced is really dry mouth but I have uped my water intake to combat that. I typically take the pill at 8:45am so that it doesn't effect my sleep."

For Weight Loss: "I am on day two of 30mg phentermine. I can already tell it's working, I'm less bloated, my sweets craving is gone and I'm rarely hungry. I tend to have to make myself eat not because I'm hungry but because my body tells me it's time. I was on this medication years ago and lost 30lbs in 3 months. The doctor I am seeing now has no limit as to how long I can or can't be on this medication. The first month is to be focusing on eating habits. I love it so far! can't wait to weigh in and see what it's doing."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started Adipex back in 2011 and within 5 months I was down 40lbs, looked and felt amazing. I'm 5'11", male and started at 250lbs, At the peak of Adipex working I got down to 175lbs with minimal working out but I worked at a job on my feet all day and active. In 2012 I left my active job for a desk job and stopped smoking... I gained around 20lbs... unfair but understandable. I was then told by my doctor that she wanted to take me off of it because I had plateaued and she didn't think it was working... 2 years later and I'm up to 265lbs, and miserable. I've started Adipex again but it doesn't appear to be working... I'm drastically less active but I'm seeing no change. Great for short time... but it will catch up when you stop."

For Weight Loss: "To start out here a brief background. I've never had issues with my weight. Even after I had my 3rd child at 28. I still was able to loose the weight in about 6 months. I was back at 140. Then I had my 4th child at 31. 2 months after having her, I got a tubal. Than packed on more weight on top of just having a baby. When I stepped on the scales at 213, I about cried. So I went to my doctor and got the diet medicine. Out of curiosity I stepped on the scale. It read 199. I'm trying not to get my hopes up. But I'm excited to be back under 200. My goal is 140. Besides the dry mouth and running to the bathroom is the only side effects I've had. And I can live with that till this weight comes off. I'm excited to see what it will be in a month."

For Obesity: "On September 30 my doc put me on the 30mg. At first I didn't want to eat while I was on it because It just took away all my desire to eat. Well I found out that in order for me to loose the weight I had to eat even if it was just snacking throughout the day. So I started snacking and then eating a small meal in the evening and I began to notice when I did this that my energy level was much higher. Well I went back to my doc today and it has been a month on the medicine I have lost 15lbs, from 319 to 320 the best thing is even though that may not seem like a lot, I have went down one pant size and shirt size. So my doctor was very pleased with my loss and we decided to go up to the 37.5 mg. So Hopefully I will continue to drop much more"

For Obesity: "So my Dr just gave me the weight loss pill 37.5 on 11/6/15 cause it's so hard for me to lose weight I'm 30 years old and 5'6 429lbs yes I know but Anyways I also have edema so he gave me a water pill Laxis 20mg. Over the weekend I weighed myself when I went to get my blood drawn this morning and the scale said 402.2 I was in total shock but I know that was probably all of the water weight that was on my body but that was still good to me. With the weight loss pill with only being on it for 3 days now I have seen my energy increase rapidly and my appetite has gone down I have to make myself eat which is once a day and I'll have a snack but I haven't had a desired to eat any sweets or anything. I go back to the Dr on 11/20 pray for me"

For Weight Loss: "I have been taking Phentermine 15mg for about 1 week now. I try to not step on the scale every morning but I can't help it. All of these veggies and calorie counting is killing me! On the bright side, it seems that I am losing a half of a pound a day so far. I am not exercising as of YET, but I will make time for it. I always keep a bottle of water near me due to the DRY mouth. But I like it so far and I can't wait to see the end results!!! Good luck everyone!"

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this after going to the Dr and seeing I was not healthy at all. I've never been this big in my 30yrs of life. I started on October 22nd weighing 226 this morning I weighed 210. I didn't have a lot of side affects. The first few days I felt wired and couldn't sleep but now I just feel full of energy. I cut out all sweets, soda, and energy drinks. I don't crave anything like that except a sprite here n there but I'll take 2 drinks and I'm done with it. You do have dry mouth at first but it just makes you want to drink water which is good. I absolutely love this and so thankful for because my Dr said if I didn't get my health back right I would have a stroke or heart attack in 5/10 years. I recommend this 1000% Good luck!!"

For Weight Loss: "I am a 57 year old woman just going into menopause. I gained about 15 pounds. I could eat all day and it seemed like I couldn't get full.i would exercise , but I over ate my workouts. I would always start a diet on Monday, and would stay focused until the weekend came. I was so tired of losing and gaining the same 4 pounds. I went to my doctor for my yearly checkup and explain to him my menopause weight gain.i asked for some diet pills and he suggested phentermine. Started on October 5 at 186. At my 30 day weight in I am 176. I am on my second round and will be weighing in December. The only side effects were dry mouth, slight headache, and constipation, and trouble sleeping. After a week side effects none. Goal weight 165."

For Weight Loss: "I've been on phentermine 30mg for 9 weeks and have lost only 6.2#. That averages out to less than 3/4# weight loss per week. I went to my doctor today to report how it was working and we decided to crank it up to the 37mg dosage. Only time will tell how that works but I'm quite disappointed in the results. I was hoping for much better results. :("

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I am doing Adipex as well as Medifast. Medifast is hard to stay in fat burn state because I cheat now and then, but now with Adipex added I have no cravings or urge to eat until the end of the day and since it's been working so well I choose healthy meals. I started at 161 on Oct. 26, 2015 and today Nov. 2, 2015 I'm already down to 157. My doctor said I am not obese but I am overweight due to PCOS. PCOS is awful trying to loose weight and so far the Adipex is the only steady thing that fits my lifestyle. I don't always have time to meal prep which is also why Medifast is great. 100 calories 5 times a day and 1 lean and green meal that adds up to around 300-400 calories so 800-900 calories a day. I split the pill half in the am and half @ 12"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I just tried this medicine because I had continuously heard it worked. I will say I felt alot of energy for the first couple of hours after taking it and I did lose 5 pds the first two days..which was GREAT! but... I experienced terrible side effects..other than the normal dry mouth, some jitters and restlessness... I experienced severe mood swings, irritability and I became angry out of no where. I know side effects are different for everyone.. This was my personal experience.. I Think the medicine could've really helped me with losing weight, but I'm not willing to have the side effects. Good luck to everyone!!"

For Weight Loss: "I've been taking it for 2 weeks exactly, fist week I lost 10 lbs. and the second week a little over 2 lbs. I have been eating under 1,000 calories and exercising daily. Starting weight was 164- today I'm 152. My goal was to lose 20 lbs. by December 31st, I only have 8 lbs. to go and it's only Oct. 31st. So far, very happy with the results! One day, I did go up 1 1/2 lbs. but lost it the next... The only downside, EXTREME dry mouth... yuck! White tongue and constant cotton mouth. However, it has COMPLETELY taking away my sugar cravings!"
