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 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)."

For Weight Loss: "I highly recommend this product from your doctor. My dr lost over 200 pounds and shows everyone his results when he puts you on the pill. My life has changed alot so far. I was pushing 220lbs and now day 6 im at 207lbs. I have so much energy to play with my 2 year old son. And I'm finally able to start running again like I used to. Before I hated exercising. I still do but its worth extra motivation now after seeing my own results."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I took Adipex for the past 3 months as prescribed. I weighed 190 lbs. with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. The first month I loss 20 lbs. The 2nd month 4 lbs and 3rd month 4 lbs. I played volleyball 2x a week with helped. I could have loss more but I hate exercising if it's not volleyball. My 1st month the insomnia was nightly. The dry mouth was all the time. Try chewing gum. I drank more water than I'm used to but it was good for me. Constipation was a problem. Try fibre pills or Phillips or stool softener for constipation. Lots of energy. 2nd month, sleep was better. I felt great because I could feel those 20 lbs. off and my clothes were so baggy. Lots of energy. I slightly started to want to eat. 3rd month. Total loss= 28 lbs."

For Weight Loss: "The list of diets and health eating approches that I have tried are in the hundreds! No exaggeration! I started the tablets on 4/14/15 at 267.2. Today 4/19/15 my weigh is 258!!!! I'm shocked and pleased with the results. Follow healthy eating guidelines focusing on portion size and drink plenty of water. The first two days. I took a 1/2 of tablet. The rest of the week I took a 1/2 30 minutes after breakfast and a 1/2 of tablet 30 minutes after lunch . I did not eat after 7."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine on 2/20/15. My weight was 418.5. As of 4/9/15 My weight dropped to 396.5. 22 lbs down! I can't express my happiness. I can't say that I have been absolutely strict and following the plan my doctor set forth but nevertheless with the changes I have made I am seeing results. I think out of the entire 7 weeks I exercised 1 full week. Other than that I have basically just been making changes in my eating habits leaving bread, pasta, and sugar completely alone. My goal is to lose 100 lbs by the end of 2015 and I really do believe that Phentermine will help me accomplish that! My experience with the drug has been terrible dry mouth and sometimes spurts of energy. Good luck to everyone."

For Weight Loss: "So, I am on day 3. I started my weight at 167 and am 5ft 5in. I am down to 165. Thats a 2 pound drop in 3 days. I like to add, that the majority of the large weight loss at first is not fat... It's water weight. It's usually the first to go on any diet. As for the phentermine, I feel great. No major side effects. I'm not anxious, I'm not moody, and my heart is not racing. I'm on 37.5 mg. I'm also getting the lipoplex shot with B12. I am on a 1300 calorie a day diet (no sugars), and am exercising by walking 3 1/2 miles a day.... So far, my only complaint is sleep... I doze off, wake up, doze off etc. Last night I took melatonin and it helped a lot! Doc said it was okay to take. Look forward to seeing my results in 30 days."

For Weight Loss: "I took the first pill today (4/17/15) and within 30 minutes I felt as if I just walked out of an Olympic sized pool that I've been walking in my whole life. I'm super alert and my hearing even perked up. Wow! I generally don't like taking meds that make me "feel" different but this is a reaction I can appreciate. I feel like I'm plugged in right now. Like my metabolism switch was turned back to "teen"! I'm looking forwards to the weight loss and weening off the med and maintaining better eating habits and exercise...for life."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine on 4/1/2015. I am a 5"5' female, 36 years old and I weighed 220 lbs. Having 2 kids back to back really added a lot of weight in a really short amount of time and I was at a loss as to what to do. I tried every diet I could think of but always ended up failing because lets face it, I dont have time to add another thing to my plate. I am a wife, a mother of 2 small kids, a student and I work full time. Not only has Phentermine given me the energy I need to keep up with my little ones, but I am maintaining school, work and home duties with no problem - I also exercise every day and eat 3 small meals a day. As of 4/15/2015, I have lost 10 pounds! I love it so far!"

For Weight Loss: "So I've recently started taking phentermine 37.5mg on 4/13/15 and today makes my 3rd day and so far I'm loving it!! It gives me the energy I need to start my day without having drink coffee which has so much calories! I weighed myself on monday I was at 186 and now I'm 183. I love how I don't have an appetite for food or if I do eat I just take a few bites and I'm full. I haven't experienced any of the side effects except just a slight headache which is normal to me."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I have taken adipex before and lost 70 lbs in 3 months. I ran two miles everyday and ate lean cuisines. I was on a 1200 calorie diet. It took me two years to gain the weight back, being in college life gets busy and it just happened. Now I'm back on it and have lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks. I recommend it to anyone who is serious about losing weight. You have to work hard to see amazing results, but it's completely worth it. From the comments I've seen some people were only prescribed it for 2 or 3 months, it may be a location issue but my doctor in MS will prescribe adipex for a patient for 6 months out of the year."

For Weight Loss: "1st 2 days were great. Took it on an empty belly, felt that euphoric feeling that people mention. Did have trouble sleeping that night. Woke up every 1 to 2 hours. Skip to day 3 I was so exhausted about 2 hours after taking the Phentermine. Doctor suggested to wait longer to eat after taking them. That did the trick. By this time I was taking Unisom or Zzzquil to help sleep at night. That works wonders. Now I'm 3 weeks in and have lost 4 pounds. I would have liked to seen amazing results like everybody else but I'll take the 4 lbs. Also I'm only on 15 mg. I started at 203 and am at 199. I go in for my 1 month checkup and we'll see what he thinks of the progress."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking this medicine a little less than a month ago and it is amazing. I have lost 13 pounds so far! I personally do NOT exercise while taking this pill, and I still have seen amazing results. I eat every 2 hours, whether it be an apple, trail mix, smart Pop popcorn etc. I drink water throughout the day, but I occasionally will drink a diet soda. The only negative side effects that I have experienced would be nausea, taste buds change and dizziness at times. Weigh every WEEK so you don't get discouraged, and keep in mind that results differ. Good luck!"

For Weight Loss: "First time I took Phentermine years back, I lost 40lbs in 2 months; starting weight was 189 in about 3-4 months later went down to 129lbs I had no appetite, I would have to force myself to eat, the pounds came off so rapidly, people thought I was sick. Now back on it again after gaining it all back after 8 years time. Now started Phentermine again about 3 weeks ago, weighed 213 now down to 195 .. It really works!!! And first time users gets better results, because it's not as effective as it was the first time, but still works."

For Weight Loss: "I started taking Phentermine a week ago. I started off with just half a pill for 3 days then took the 37.5 mg. Just wanted my body to adjust to the new medication. I have lost 8 pounds in one week. From 172 to 164. I also am doing a low carb diet and eating 3 meals a day. The only side effect I have is dry mouth but drinking more water helps with weight loss. I would definitely recommend this pill."

For Weight Loss: "I just started taking this medication on (4/9/2015) and I can honestly say that the amount of energy I have is almost mind blowing! I made the decision to take this because I am a young (26) single mother of a 5 year old and through the hardships we have endured I began to notice I ate to feel better. Until I realized it was making me feel worse. I had ZERO energy. Barely had the energy to go to work and do the daily routine let alone play with my innocent child who so desperately needs her mother. It was time I made a change. That's when I made my appointment. I am 5'6 and my starting weight was 231. I am already down 5lbs. I'm working out and eating right as well! I will check in later and let you know of my progress! Best wishes!"
