Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: "I started on 8/24/15 as of today 9/6 I have lost 10 lbs, just under 2 weeks. I only take half a pill which is just fine for me. I have very little appetite, I force myself to eat. I'm staying under 1200 calories per day, more like 800. My cravings for sweets are gone! This is strange for me because I love sweets. I'm not eating any bread or drinking any soda. Lots of water, fruits, veggies, salads and protein. I have not exercised yet but plan to soon. I could not sleep the first few days and dry mouth is starting to kick in, it's tolerable. My goal is to lose 60 lbs by the end of the year."

For Weight Loss: "Second month update...I lost 8lbs this month. I was hoping for more but I have not been able to get up to go to the gym due to insomnia. I am a morning workout person (before work). I have no problem falling asleep but usually wake up after only 3 hrs and then I cannot fall back asleep until right before it is time to get up. As exhausted as I am my next dose of phentermine gets me through the day but it has become a vicious cycle. Today I skipped phentermine for the first time as my body needs sleep and I plan to resume tommorow. Another side effect I have experienced is constipation but a stool softener took care of that for me. Overall phentermine has been very helpful . I have been alternating my calorie consumption ."

For Obesity: "I was on Phentermine 3 Years ago and lost 150lbs in a year and a half. I worked out and because it curbs your appetite I could eat healthier. You really need to work out and use it as a tool to help you with your new lifestyle because if you don't the weight WILL come back on plus more. I kept it off for 3 years but then had a job change that kept me from going to the gym in the morning & afternoons and didn't work out with the kids. I gained 150 lbs back in 3 years. I just started again on 08/12 and have lost 25lbs. I haven't got into a steady gym routine now but it's motivated me to go to the gym in the afternoons. I chose a different center for the gym because my kids can play basketball or swim while I work out."

For Weight Loss: "It is 8/2/15 and I just started them today. I am 5'5 1/4 according to the navy and weigh 250. I go to the gym 5 days a week and lose body fat just not weight. I have known people who have lost 20 pounds in a week doing nothing so I am hoping for the best and everyone on here seems to have good results"

For Weight Loss: "Day 4 on Phen, haven't lost 1 ounce! I know that's not a lot of time but I see most people lose right away. Even if it's just water weight, I expected to lose at least a lb. It does do a great job at suppressing my appetite. Maybe too good. I don't eat very much because I am just not hungry. Hoping I see some results soon!! Dry mouth is annoying and I am tired most of the day but awake at night."

For Weight Loss: "I started on this medication (37.5 mg) on March 12, 2015 weighing 217. Today, August 30, 2015 I weigh 175. In a few weeks I will begin a much lower dose. There are some negative side effects, dry mouth and constipation being the most annoying but I had no jitters or changes in sleep. I'm 47 and am 5'5 with a goal weight of 140."

For Weight Loss: "I've been taking this for a couple of months and have only lost about 4 lbs. I'm not hungry and am pretty good at watching what I eat, making healthy choices. I haven't been doing any formal type of exercise although I am busy everyday, working around the house and in the yard. I can't understand why I am not losing the amount of weight the other people are stating. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I take one pill in the morning and 1/2 pill in the afternoon."

For Weight Loss: "I was on Phentermine. I lost 8 pounds because I also take Effexor, Topamax and Clonidine for other symptoms. My insurance company considered this a trial. I, after three months, was no longer covered for the drug because I couldn't lose ten pounds because of my other conditions. I now am going through horrific withdrawals. I cannot sleep nor eat properly. I have to constantly drink something to produce saliva. I shake constantly and have nightmares from this medication. If you are on this medication, DO NOT STOP TAKING IT!!! I learned the extremely hard way that this medication IS addictive! My doctor told me the psychiatric effects are my mental illness NOT the medication! So, I advise anyone, do not take this with psychiatric meds!"

For Weight Loss: "I'm 5'10" 54 year old female. I started taking 37.5 mg with 10 mg fluoxetine (Prozac to ease neg side effects) in the mornings one week ago at 203 lbs. I am already down to 191, a loss of 12 pounds in the first week. I've had no hunger and absolutely no cravings. I have been able to eliminate all sugars, simple carbohydrates etc. While I recognize that most of this is probably water weight, that has to go first! I have not started exercising but will do so this week hoping to maintain the momentum. Very pleased but need to continue to be disciplined as this is only a tool, I've got to do the hard work too."

For Obesity: "I love Adipex! I gained a lot of weight during the winter due to depression and being incarcerated from December to February. A couple years ago I used Adipex for 3 months and lost 25 pounds. I maintained a healthy weight from there on until the beginning of this year. I started back to my local diet clinic two months ago weighing in at 213 pounds for a 5`6 1/2" 28 year old. First month I lost 14 lbs. Second, 9 lbs. I go back in 5 days and can't wait to see my results for this month. I swear by the drug and owe my life to it. I'm shooting for 145-150 lbs. You won't regret it.:-)"

For Weight Loss: "Hello I'm 5'0 was 146 when I started the pill, 5 days after being on the medication I felt the right side of my face feel really weird and very dry mouth. Didn't pay much attention to it on the 7th day I noticed I had developed Bell's palsy went to the ER as my MD believed it was the progression of a stroke. They did a CT scan everything was normal when I asked my MD if it could have been from the phen he said that's not a side affect he prescribes the medication all the time and has not had any complications but to stop the medication. When I asked the ER Dr she had no clue what phentermine was. I was really disappointed to have to stop the med as I had lost 6 pounds in 1 week. Wondering if anyone has experienced this symptom"

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: "Not obese but med change & back surgery resulted in an extra 20 lbs not normal for me. Doc required tracking of diet & exercise before RX was given and would only write for brand name as generic ramped up potential side effects. Continued regular monitoring & input on necessary long-term diet changes. I lost 30 lbs & have been off for a week. I eat foods I love & that are healthy so no sacrifice there. The energy it provided allowed me to create an AM yoga routine each day. Side effects of dry mouth & less sleep were there but minimal. Pretty tired in the beginning of coming off them but adjusting now. The goals we set together were met & the purpose of a lifestyle change/improvement were accomplished. This is a solution to changing your lifestyle."

For Weight Loss: "I started the pills August 20th. I haven't been to the gym yet, but I eat SUPER healthy now and a lot less than I used to; and I have lost 8 pounds within 5 days!!! It's so crazy. I barely am ever hungry and I get so full so fast. I do have dry mouth, but I drink a lot of water for it. My doctor said by eating good and exercise here and there I could loose up to 20 pounds in one month. Hopefully I'll be able to loose another 50 pounds by the next 3 months!"

For Weight Loss: "I have lost 80 lbs using phentermine for almost 10 months. it has been a great thing for me. I have energy to workout and have had no desire for soda in almost a year. I take it every other month and it is still working for me. I have a few friends of mine that are taking it as well and it has worked for them as well."

For Weight Loss: "I started on 8/8/15 at 257lbs, tomorrow will be 2 weeks I have been on it and I'm down to 240lbs, that's down 17lbs!! I work out 4 to 5 times a week, walking 3 miles or the elliptical for 45 mins. I have cut out all sweets as I noticed foods with a lot of sugar make me shaking while one the pills. I have like no appetite, but make myself eat at least 3 times a day, I mostly eat fruits and veggies when I do eat. I drink about 8 bottles of water a day due to dry mouth and excessive sweating when working out. I have only found 2 side effects dry mouth and constipation which I take a stool softener every morning to help with."

For Weight Loss: "I'm on day 6 of phentermine, only taking half of the 37.5 and start my whole pill tomorrow. So far so good, I don't have a ton of energy but I'm having to force myself to eat because I have no interest in food (which is really new for me). I am down 6 lbs in 6 days and am yet to hit the gym, I am following a low cal diet from my nutritionist. The only down fall is I have a really hard time getting to sleep, BUT I wake up feeling like I got a ton of sleep so either way."

For Obesity: "I'm 39 yrs old 5'6" & 239.4lbs. I just started Adipex-P 8 days ago-- 8/12/15. The 1st day I had so much energy I couldn't contain myself. That has calmed down. I drink way more water than I use too. I find that it helps with the dry mouth and chewing gum as well. I have NOT weighed myself yet.. a little scared too. But I will on day 10. My goal is to loose at least 50 lbs . 175-180 seem to be a good weight for me. I feel super small at that size. I lost 70 lbs on my own about 3 years ago. I was 256 at my heaviest. I don't exercise at ALL. Just being honest. Severe PAD doesn't allow for much of that. I have 2 mths on this. SO EXCITED!!!"
