For Weight Loss: "I was prescribed phentermine almost two years ago for a three month period. This drug is wonderful! I lost 50 pounds and managed to keep it off! You must use your time while on phentermine to learn how to eat correctly or you will gain the weight back. Be realistic about your portion sizes and give up processed foods. Not only did I lose the weight while on phentermine I continued to lose weight ( 15lb) after I stopped taking the medication due to my new healthy lifestyle. My BMI is normal now!!!"

For Weight Loss: "*Update* I'm 5'9, 29 yr, female, started at 266lbs. It's day 36, and I've lost about 16 pounds. The only thing I experienced was dry mouth within the first week. Since then that has subsided, but now my feet and hands are tingly. It's not severe but enough to be annoying. I still feel great. No other side effects. Since taking it, I'm teaching myself to choose better foods and make smaller plates. Trying to establish good habits while it's easy to do so. I haven't incorporated exercise in my routine yet, but I can't wait to see results when I do! Still moving forward with it."

For Weight Loss: "I started phentermine on 10/28 at 318 lbs. I was miserably depressed and my weight had spiraled out of control after getting married and having a baby. I had tried to lose and I found it nearly impossible. With phentermine, I have energy and my appetite is very controlled. I limit my carb intake and eat 1400 calories per day. I work out 3-5 times per week and my endurance has greatly improved and there is a huge difference in the way I feel. I have lost 33 lbs in 7 weeks. I expect to lose 10 lbs per month and I am very satisfied with that. No side effects to speak of. I am very happy my doctor prescribed this for me!"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I've only been taking this med for 5 days, but I don't get any of the extra energy that my doctor said I would. Does it take a while to get in your system or is it supposed to work immediately?"

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I was prescribed Fastin for weightloss . The prescription pills worked great not a single bad side effect I lost over 50 lbs in about 4 months. It gave me energy to start working out and WOW did my concentration for work improve . However the pills were costly and given out in office only. So every month it was 40 for the Dr visit and weigh in and another 40 for 1 months worth of pills . When I was unable to afford this regimen I looked for cheaper alternatives. I got some over the counter bottle of FASTIN I bought 2 bottles. These are unhealthy, way over caffinated Crap! I had gotton very ill half way in to taking the first bottle and had to stop bcaz jitters, headache, paranoia racing heart !!! My advise pay for the real stuff."

For Weight Loss: "I was on Phentermine for about a week and I was losing weight but the side effects were insane. Throughout those 7 days I had severe throbbing pain on the left side of my head. The pain would start from the top and run down. What made me stop taking this pill was when the left side of my face started to get a little numb. That scared me and I immediately stopt taking Phentermine. The next day the severe throbbing pain was gone. Now it's been about 2 months since I've stopped taking Phentermine and the headaches have begun. So yesterday I went to my doctor and I explained to her that the only time I've had throbbing pain was when I took these pills. She then told me that I was experiencing migraines. I've had headaches before but pain like"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I am female, I am 5'6 and weight 170lbs, I have never been this heavy, not even pregnant . The most I have weighted is around 150. My goal is to get back to that size. Today is my first day taking apidex. I will check back in, in 2 weeks with updates."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I started taking this pill Jan. 16, 2012. I was a 235lb, 5'4 female. In one week I lost 13lbs. I lost a total of 90 lbs in 4 and a half months and have kept it off almost 4yrs. BUT:::::: This pill will only be successful if you make life changes. It will increase energy and curb appetite while you take it. You will lose weight quickly. As soon as you stop, however, you will crave all the nutrients you have deprived your body of while trying to follow a 1000/1200 calorie a day diet.....thus gaining the weight back just as quickly if not careful to stick with portion control"

For Weight Loss: "I joined a weightloss clinic because I have been struggling to loose 30 pounds for about 7 years. I loose 6-10, then gain it back, then repeat. I went last Thursday and got a B6/B-12 shot and the pills. I weighed 168. I'm trying to get to around 135. When I returned yesterday, a week later I weighed 162...down 6 pounds. I take the pill between 7 and 8am and it really curbs my appetite and cravings. I don't even feel like eating. Sometimes I only eat because my stomach is growling or I start to feel a little light headed. It really does curb your appetite. I am working on eating clean and exercising, so I am making a lifestyle change that will last once I finish taking the pills. Wish me luck!"

For Weight Loss: "I have PCOS and have struggled with weight loss my whole life. I've been on Phentermine for about 3 and a half months now. I started at 265 and am now at 229. So I've lost 36 pounds. I diet with this medication because I won't let myself gain it back when my times up. I eat around 1600 calories a day And only drink water or teas with honey. This medication has changed my life and I love it. I do have dry mouth. And the energy messes with my sleep most nights. But it's great and I recommend it to people often"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I am 5ft & 160#. Um a short round pear. I started Adipex in September (I think) I have only lost 10lbs. I put on a lot of weight when I started taking my thyroid medicine. I have changed up my eating habits some & have been trying to go to the gym 3 days a week. & go walking with my dog on the weekends. At first when I took it I had light headaches & I felt like I lost all my energy by mid afternoon & was a little constipated. Now I feel fine. Dry mouth & still light constipation. I just thought it would work a little better for me. I am trying to eat better it can be so hard when I have to make dinner for hubby & make me something else & being around the holidays. I am hoping to loose 20 more pounds."

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "I took this medication two years ago, I was on it for six months, I didn't drop weight but I did loose inches. I was wearing a size 26 in plus size and went down to a 22. I just started taking this again two days ago, my current weight is 295, I am 5'5, female, and currently wearing a size 22 plus size. I am drinking premier protien shakes once a day for extra protien and meal replacement since I work over nights. I eat breakfast, have my shake for lunch, and eat a small amount for dinner but keeping my calorie intake between 900-1200 calories a day, I have replaced sweet tea with flavored bottled water, and I'm counting my steps for exercise. I am hoping to get down to a size 18 within 3 months. Wish me luck."

For Weight Loss: "Male, age 49. I've climbed the ladder to a nice cushy office job with little or no walking. Regular days are 12-16 hours, leave when it's dark come home when it's dark. A co- worker introduced me to his doctor for a wellness visit, he prescribed phentrimine 30 mg and I've lost 14lbs in 30 days. I honestly have very little time away from work and this loss in weight was simply smaller portions, lots of water and having enough self control to eliminate all high fructose corn syrups and eat lots off veggies, and no fast food. Enjoy and don't bow to temptation."

For Weight Loss: "Hey everyone! Today is day 5 of being on the medicine. I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and as a result, I am overweight and it is very difficult to lose due to excess Testosterone in my body. That being said - I am 5'2 and was 230 lbs in April 2015. I went Vegan for 4 months and I lost about 18 lbs with intense exercise 3x week. As of June 5th I was 212 and then down to 202 in October. I was put on Metformin in October to help with weight loss but since then I am only down to 197. The doctor decided to take me off that and try this. I am very used to stimulants and caffeine so the jitters don't really affect me. No other side effects as of yet. I will update further along with a new weight. So far, I am happy with the switch."

For Obesity: "I started Phentermine on October 28th. Before Phentermine I weighed 191 lbs after about a 2 weeks I lost. 10lbs. Now I got on the scale today and my total was 160lbs. The only side effects that I have is dry mouth. Yes this includes your lips. You will be using lots of balm. Also try to have a good diet. Also even though your appetite is pretty much decreased try to eat small meals and drink plenty of water. Remember your doctor will take you off Phentermine in 30 days and you will gain the weight back. To prevent that eat small portions. Also pickles are excellent. You will maintain your weight and when the doc prescribe you back on Phentermine you will continue to lose weight."

For Weight Loss: "I have been on 37.5 mg for 14 days and have lost 11 pounds. Only problem I have at all is dry mouth. Water doesn't help. Gum does but I get headaches if I chew gum too long. Overall though it's been awesome!"

For Weight Loss: "I'm a female 5'7 225lbs.I took this pill on 12-2-15 at 10:45am with a green smoothie...after an hour I had a burst of energy & felt very awake....after leaving the gym I felt like a could run a marathon..and by the end of the day I drank 116 oz of water...i ate small, and I also had to force myself to eat small healthy meals, because my stomach was growling but my mind and taste buds weren't telling me to eat...this pill definitely curbs your appetite, where u forget to eat, but the dry mouth is a good thing because now I drink lots of water, I add lemons, cucumbers, strawberries or blueberries, in 2 days I lost 5 pounds, my doctor prescribed it for 3 months, I'm hoping to lose 30 pounds."

For Weight Loss: "I started using the 37.5mg phentermine on Dec 1, 2015. It is now Dec 4 and I am down 5 pounds. My doctor told me to start at half a pill for the first 4 days so I haven't even experienced a full pill a day yet. I take it around 7:30am and it lasts all day. My appetite is completely gone - I have no taste for any food so I have to force myself to eat something. I do get very dry mouth though and my heart races all day. And although I have energy during the day I do get tired around 8pm. I haven't even incorporated any work outs yet so I can only imagine how fast it will come off once I start adding workouts. I drink more water due to the dry mouth so that is a good thing. Nothing has ever worked like this before. The best!"

When I do eat I make sure it is something healthy. I feel awesome. I really needed this to help retrain my brain to drink more and eat healthy small means!"

For Weight Loss: "Long story short- I am a small girl, about 5'1. I never had weight issues until, well Life happened and I had 2 kids back to back and never lost all the baby weight. I ballooned to 225 LBS! I tried EVERYTHING with little to no success. My cravings for sugar were TERRIBLE and I had lots of stress in my daily life I won't get into. I cried to my doctor to help me and after some simple tests (EKG & Liver U/S) she prescribed me Phentermine x1 daily 37.5mg. Been on it for just about a month now and lost 10 lbs. I have never lost this much weight in 30 days with anything else. My appetite is non existent, but I do get hungry later in the day sometimes. You will get dry mouth and bouts of insomnia but those are easy fixes! Would recommend!"

For Weight Loss: "I have been taking phentermine. I'm a guy standing 5ft 10 and weight 187 I'm trying to get down to 170 it doesn't seem like I'm dropping any weight I have been working out and trying to watch my calorie intake I only see a fluctuation from 187 to 192 but nothing lower then 187. I have dry month but it doesn't brother me and because I have been consuming a gallon of water a day. The only thing that I get often are headaches and I have been eating a little which seems to make the headaches go away. I hope I see a change soon"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I am 21, 5ft .5in female and I got to my heaviest point, weighing in at 155.2. I have never been more than 130. I tried weight watchers and I worked out for about 45-1hr every day and nothing was helping...anyway, I went to my dr and he said he felt I reached a plateau, where it was very hard for me to lose the weight. I was proscribed Adipex tablets on 11/17/15 and today, 12/1/15, I am down 11.2lbs. That is 11.2lbs in exactly 2 weeks!! After losing about 5lbs I felt so much better already. I have not had any horrible side effects. I have dry mouth if I don't drink much and I barely ever eat anything. I have to force myself to eat. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about it. I definitely would recommend it! Will update in 2 weeks!"

For Weight Loss: "I was a bit hesitant about this prescription but I am happy to say it really does work! I have been taking for three weeks and I am down 15 lbs. My appetite is low and I eat portion sizes that are appropriate for my size which was my problem and caused the weight gain. My energy level is higher than it's been in months. Side Effects: Dry Mouth, Never hungry so it's easy to forget to eat, Sleep Very Light. I would recommend this to anyone who needs help controlling portions or limit snacking."
