For Weight Loss: On 3 days, haven't noticed any difference in appetite. Going to ask for an increase in mg. I'm on 15mg with 900 calorie diet. But I'm so hungry.

For Weight Loss: I've been taking phentermine for 2 months and I have lost 22 pounds. I haven't exercised just my normal active life as a mother and student. The only side effect I've had is severely dry mouth and no appetite. I literally force myself to eat something

Review by Wendca:

For Weight Loss: I started medication 4 weeks ago. The first week I was only taking half a pill. Second week went up to a whole pill. I have side effects of dry mouth, unable to sleep more than 5 hours and some constipation. With all this being said so far I have found positives of losing 11 lbs, watching what I eat, drinking more water and doing portion control. I have back and knee issues so I am unable to exercise so the weight loss will assist me so I can be active in the future. I look forward to starting another month of the medication and losing another 11. My dr. Did say she will only prescribe for 3 months so I will continue to monitor and take what I have learned and implement it in my future to continue with the 60 lbs I need to lose:)

For Weight Loss: This is my second go-round with Phentermine. 5 years ago, I had to research AND BEG, my PCP to prescribe me something for weight loss. I was about 220 lbs then. Was on 15 mg Phentermine for 8 weks, and lost about 20 lbs, but then my doctor abruptly stopped it because it "wasn't her specialty." In the past 5 years, I have ballooned to 273 (as of 2/11/15). I was laid-up, had some debilitating health issues, etc. My weight was never really an issue until I hit my mid-20s (32 now.). However, a friend referred me to her PCP, who also prescribes weight loss meds. I'm on 15 mg now for 1st mo til f/u. We are looking at a 6 mo plan. Already lost approx. 2-3 lbs in 3 days. Home scales are a lil iffy- but it's encouraging! I'd like to lose 100 lbs .

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I am a male and started taking Adipex exactly one month ago. I am 5"5' and weighed 186 pounds on the day I started. After 30 days, I have lost 18.5 pounds. I have balanced the use of this prescription by doing my best to eat a low fat....and low sodium diet. Not dramatic, but just as good as I can. Other than walking, I have done minimal exercise - but only because its a struggle fitting in gym time with work and family. The weight loss was very quick the first week, then leveled off at about 1/2 pound - 1 pound a day. My doctor stressed the importance of eating at the appropriate and perfect times after taking the medicine. She equated it to lighting charcoal on a grill and placing the meat on at the perfect time..>not too early/late

For Weight Loss: I started the meds on Monday 2/1/15 and I have seen a significant changed in my hunger. My food intake for the past 2 days has been way less than the normal. I am following the diet plan my doctor gave me and have included an exercise plan. My only complaint is the dry mouth and lack of sleep. I've managed to get about 5-6 hours each night which has me feeling rested in the mornings. And yes I've lost 2 pounds!!!

For Weight Loss: I started the medication Jan 9th 2015 at 247 today is Jan 31st and I'm down 10 lbs. I'm happy with the weight loss but if my doctor would up me to whole pill I'd probably really lose weight. I'll see him on the 9th of February and I'm sure he'll increase my dosage. So far I haven't suffered any of the side effects previously mentioned. Also per my doctor if you suffer headaches it means you're not eating enough.

For Weight Loss: I'm a 18 year old female, my entire life I've always been overweight and I wasn't able to lose it, it didn't bother me until I gained 40 pounds in less than a year due to being on birth control. I went from 175 lbs to 215, that's when being overweight caught up to me. I wasn't noticing how much the way I looked changed. Until I went clothes shopping and I couldn't fit into a size 16. That was when I went to my doctor and he recommended Phentermine, It has been almost 3 months and so far I've seen nothing but positive results, I lost 31 ponds so far and still going! I bought a size 13 mini skirt, it was too wide! I haven't fit into a size 11 since I was 15. I strongly recommend it, because of it I smile every time I look in the mirror now.

For Weight Loss: I started phentermine right before thanksgiving. I am 5"2' and starting weight was 184lbs. It made me not hungry at all. I constantly drank water and ate very lightly. No insomnia first month. I lost 17 pounds. Second month I had to take 3 days off because of the insomnia. If I feel I can't sleep I will skip a day or two. Still only drinking water and eating lightly. No exercise at all and today I weigh 156lbs. Total loss of 28lbs in two months. This month I plan to add exercise to drop more weight. Love Phentermine!

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: My last post was in February 2014. To sum up my experience: starting weight: 161.4, height 5'3. Received two total bottles of 37.5mg pills, which lasted me from February '14 to June '14. I would halve pills, skip days, etc if I felt the need, so these lasted quite awhile. My lowest weight once all was said and done: 141.2 on June 20th, 20.2 lbs lost. Today, Jan 30 2015, I weigh 146.2. I am happy that in 7 months time I've only managed to gain 5 lbs (AND after the holidays thank you very much!). This pill is great, but it's not a miracle. It also won't last forever as you can only have 3 refills a year if you meet the BMI requirement for medical weight loss. Taught me portion control

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I loved the product! I started June 1, 2014 to August 2014. IN 2 MONTHS I HAD LOST 30 LBS! I was doing Zumba 3 times a week and had a personal trainer to help tone my body with my new found ENERGY. The Personal Trainer was a waste because Adipex with Zumba was doing a tremendous job all on its own. I wasn't craving sweets thanks to Adipex. I cut out fast foods, carbs, and late night eating. Plus I drank anywhere from 1/2 to a gallon A DAY! However, the medicine still made me constipated. I started at 244 and got down to 209lbs. I stopped using it for about 5 months AND THE WEIGHT STAYED OFF, while not eating so healthy.

For Weight Loss: I have to start off with saying I'm so pumped up about losing this weight. I started taking phentermine Jan 17th with a starting weight of 199.1 and now two days later Jan 19th I weigh 195.2. I feel a little buzzy maybe an hour after I take it but tend to get hungrier at night. I'm going to start taking it later in the day so it can hold me over until the end of the day

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I am 20 years old and I have always had problems with weight loss since I was in middle school. I went to the doctor and was prescribed Adipex. I have been on a low carb diet and I have been on Adipex for 9 days now and have lost 6 pounds so far. I am very happy with the results right now and I'm hoping to keep at it and try to reach my goal weight! I am 5'4 and before I started the diet I weighed in at 192lbs and so far I am down to 186lbs. My goal weight is 145 to 150lbs!
