Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been taking Adipex for about 5-6 years. All I can say is that some of you will feel bad or very bad after taking it but most important is to take vitamins and minerals along with Adipex. I had back pain, heart racing then even I felt like my heart stopped for 2 seconds, scary but I started to listen to my body. I drank lots of water, ate loads of spinach and leafy greens and vitamins, vitamins all the time. It is also strongly advisable not to eat any meat or heavy meals. Please remember that despite the fact that you got loads of energy, uyor bowels are sleeping, you can hardly feel any movement in your stomach. Phentermine is blocking the "hunger centre" in your brain. I hope it helps. I have reduced all side effects I've had.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I took a pill this morning with some tea, and while I was eating breakfast I noticed my heart rate sky rocket, I don't know if this happened because I took fastin on an empty stomach or what, but this is a little scary! It literally feels like my heart is going to jump out of my chest! At first I didn't think I could be reacting to this drug so quick but apparently it's a very quick release type of pill. I can say that I'm not hungry and didn't finish my breakfast but at what cost?! Maybe I should try taking a quarter of the tablet, but I think I'm a little to scared and will probably throw the bottle away.. what a waste of $40 oh well better 40 bucks lost than a heart attack. Also I bought these over the counter at a Rite Aid.

Review by Mrs Motivated (taken for less than 1 month):

For Weight Loss: I have been using Phentermine for the past week and it works! I already lost 7 lbs in 1 week with diet and exercise as well. In the beginning I was very apprehensive about this. I have friends who have used it and it also worked for them. I did experience a few side effects such as: dizziness, heart palpitations, and insomnia, but once my body got used to it I felt fine. As a nurse, mother of two, and I juggle two jobs Phentermine gave me the energy I needed. When I left work @ 5pm I would pick up the kids make dinner, do homework and still have energy for an 1 hour and a half, 5-6 days a week of exercise at the local 24/7 gym. So thumbs up Phentermine!

For Weight Loss: I lost 23 lbs in 2 months. It really works guys if you don't have any thyroid issues. It also gave me energy and made me sleep less, which was a plus because I work a night shift job and have two small children. I also got a little high off of it the first two weeks on was on it. The best high ever. Oh and by the I had the best orgasms ever in my life.

For Obesity: I am 33 yrs old 5'8 weighing in at 276lbs, lost 106 lbs on my own eating low carb back in 2008. Gained most back pregnant with our 5th child 2011. Then my thyroid went nuts (postpartom thyroiditois) and gained 40 lbs in 2 months after baby. Thyroid straighten up but weight remained. Low carb dieting just wasn't working this time so I got desperate & doctor put me on this phentermine 37.5 a day. I started on Dec 18th 2013 & in 3 days I've lost 8lbs. I have to make myself eat even though I have no appetite. I can barely get 700 calories in. I feel light headed and thats all so far. I eat very healthy now. I hope I'm eating enough.

For Weight Loss: I started taking phentermine 2 1/2 months ago...thinking I weighed around 250lbs I decided to go to a weightloss clinic. At my 1st appointment I couldn't believe I actually weighed 336 lbs. I am 5'4 and 24 years old. I go to the clinic every Saturday to get weighed, get a B12 shot and also they give me my medicines for 1 week. The phentermine, amino acids, calcium, and a multivitamin. So after 10 weeks of a strict protein diet and at least 2 hours in the gym everyday I am now down to 269lbs. That's 68 pounds in 2 1/2 months. I wouldn't be able to stick to my diet without the phentermine. It definitely suppresses my appetite.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started taking Adipex in Sept and went in on Dec 7th for my three month check in and I lost 38 pounds. I am 5' 8" and began weighing in at 259 and am now down to 221 and this is without including exercise. Walking is part of my daily routine, I walk a lot throughout the day as I'm running between classes and then to go to work. I did experience some side effects the first week like being light headed, dizziness and a dry mouth. But I use that to increase my water intake. My doctor actually recommended I only take it about 5 days a week so that my body doesn't become so used to it and that's what I have been doing. So far, so good and I can't wait to continue losing weight.

For Weight Loss: I started out at 307 pounds on July 15, 2013. My cholesterol was out of control and I felt depressed and had no energy. The doctor put me on phentermine. 1 a day and now increased to 1 1/2. Today is November 25, 2013 and I have officially lost 62 pounds. My advice, don't sit around and wait for it to work. I started a heart healthy diet and I work out 4 times a week at least. I did a complete life style change and feel so much better. A lot of people say they don't have time to work out. Make time. I have a full time job, children, husband and a house to take care off. You have to want it bad enough. Good luck!!!

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been working out for the past year and a half. I've taken many kinds of diet pills and let me tell you this is by far the BEST thing. I've lost 35lbs and I feel wonderful. I do feel a little jittery but I can handle that. It's great and I hope it never goes away. Love it!

For Obesity: Im 5'2 and 245lbs. Never suffered from being overweight in my life but in the past couple years my weight has been progressingly going up, and I work out and diet is extremely modified so my doctor decided to try me on this medication. I started it last Friday 11/15 at 245lbs and as of today I'm 231lbs. Meaning 14lbs in 6 days. My appetite has definitely been suppressed, really not much of an appetite at all, but for the most part the medication is doing what I desired it to do, and besides last night only getting a couple hours of sleep and up the remaining of the night I feel good. Will post again after a month or so.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I just started adipex 3 days ago. Im having some insomnia and terible dry mouth. But I also have mad energy and little appetite. Adipex is amazing! Compared to having no energy, terrible depression, and feeling like there was no hope, I feel great! Hopefully this continues don't give up there is help out there!!

For Weight Loss: I was at 185 now 174!! So far 11lb down in a little less than two weeks.. super excited! My goal weight is 130-135. 185 is the most i ever weighed..i dont think i look it, but the scale doesn't lie! Lol. Ive had a few symptoms so far...dry mouth, lasts all day whether i chew gum, drink water. Insomnia is horrible, i can have three hours of sleep and be fine all day. I use to get really jittery and want to move around but so far i havent been super hyper like i was. Today i felt my hands and feet tingling not bad though. I have also had a headache the past two days...which it may not even be from this hopefully itll go away. I also would have hot.flashes but then get cold. Overall im just excited to see results!!
