Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been on Adipex for almost two years. When they say it not a such thing as a miracle pill they haven't tried this. 10 pounds from my goal of losing 150 pounds. My weight loss has slowed down a bit but as long as the numbers go down and not up, I'm still happy. I did experience extremely dry mouth, dizziness and loss of appetite for the first two months.. BUT IT WAS WORTH EVERY BIT. Now I'm starting to have sleeping problems which I don't like. I am very scared if I stop taking it I'm going to gain my Weight back.

Review by laurapp (taken for 1 to 6 months):

phentermine for Weight Loss: UPDATE: went to the doctor office for my second bottle of pills on Feb 11-13 and officially I have lost 11 pounds in one month. From 157 to 146 doing a little bit of exercise once or twice a week, I still need to loose a least 12 more pounds to be at my high end of normal weight. I will update next month.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started Adipex (phentermine) on June 26th 2012. I weighed 239 lbs and I am 5'4, 42 year old female. I had the typical spare tyre that women have a tendency to get over 40. I was obese and in danger of getting a number of diseases that would have affected the rest of my life such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease. I have come a long way I am down to 178 lbs as of today. I am beginning to have a show down in results. I need to increase my exercise as I only lost 6 lbs the last month. I did however manage to lose 11 pounds over thanksgiving and Christmas. The doctor is extremely pleased with my progress as is my husband. He has a new wife. I have never felt better. I have dropped 10 sizes. 28 pounds to goal. Go me.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I tried Adipex about a year ago and in the first month I lost 20 lbs! I went to the gym about 3 days a week, and I was on a 1200 calorie limitation from my doctor. I drank mostly water(added the flavor packets for taste). Unfortunately I feel off of the Adipex wagon only after a month. I not only gained all of my weight back, but I gained 15 more pounds on top of that due to a lot of fast food. I just started back on Adipex 2 days ago and already I have lost 3 lbs!

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been on Adipex for a little over a month and I have lost 12 pounds. At first I was not hungry what so ever but slowly over time my appetite has come back but I have been making healthy choices. My doctor said it's normal while on it for the three months you lose anywhere from 30-60 lbs just depends how committed you are. I know that the state of Ohio only allows you to use Adipex for three months at a time with a six month break and if you need to you can continue the medication after the six months are up.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Obesity: Adipex(phentermine) is great for weight loss. I did experience minor side effects (i.e. dry mouth, insomnia.) I have taken this medicine on and off for several years. I noticed rapid weight loss the first time I took it, losing over 30 pounds in the first month. I was 202lbs when I took it the first time and after only 1 month I was down to about 170lbs. I went off of the medicine for several months, didn't exercise and returned to my original eating habits, regaining all of the weight plus some. The second time I took it I didn't experience the same rapid weight loss I had with the first attempt, only getting down to about 182lbs. Going for try #3 but will do it right this time with exercise and diet change for life!

phentermine for Weight Loss: I have now been taking phentermine starting week 3. I have only lost 4 lb but I have lost inches 2 1/2 inches off my waist 1 1/2 inch off my hips. The day I started taking phentermine I weighed myself and measured myself. I have been working out 3 to 4 times per week, 1 hour of cardio on the treadmill and half an hour lifting light weight 5 to 10lb. I feel my body more firmer. It is at times discouraging that the scale doesn't say less but those are the breaks when you work out. But now I hope with at least losing some inches off my waist my family doctor and my obgyn can get off my case about my belly fat. I will keep working at it and post again.

phentermine for Weight Loss: Today has marked my one month of taking the phentermine. Only side effect I have had so far is dry mouth and a hot flash about 30 minutes after taking the medicine. I have gone from 204lbs to 184lbs. I still eat what I want just no sweets and only water combined with 25 mins of elliptical and 20 minutes of treadmill at 3 speed at least 3 times a week. I have lost 3 inches off my waist but I'm hip measurements are still the same and I lost 2 inches combined off my thighs. Love this medicine.

phentermine for Obesity: I'm not the type that really trusts in what people says about how easy losing weight but one day my sister was telling me about this diet pill how good it really worked so I tried. I'm 47 yrs old and always been heavy set. I weighed in at 224lbs Jan 7,2013 and on Jan 15,2013 I was down to 215lbs. I lost nine pounds, I have more energy, I used to be a heavy soda drinker couldn't do without it and know I haven't had any for two weeks, food don't look interesting to me anymore. I have to make myself eat, I can exercise now and I feel great. I hope to keep it of and my goal is to lose 100 pounds by fall.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started Adipex two days ago. I'm 21 years old 5' tall and weigh 158lbs. According to my BMI and my doctors visit I am at the breaking point of obesity. I have had many struggles in the past with getting back to my goal weight of 105-110 and decided to give Adipex a shot. Obesity runs in my family and I hope to stop the cycle. I haven't had any side effects so far except for occasional dry mouth so I just drink water which is good anyway. I have had a great experience so far with increased energy and a suppressed appetite. I want to keep up with at least exercising for 30min a day and eating better and hopefully I will see results at the end of month one. I want to be at my goal weight which is a loss of about 50lbs in around 8 months. Wish me luck!

phentermine for Weight Loss: I have been on phentermine 37.5 mg for a week exactly today along with taking furosemide which helps in water reduction. The first day I took it I felt a little wired, jittery but it went away. Since then I have been fine. No insomnia at all. I take both pills in the morning (latest is 11am if I am off for the day). I did notice that not all my hunger was completely subsided. I would get hungry here and there. I stick to a 1200 cal diet and exercise. I've lost 10lbs in this first week. I also drank on new years eve and was fine!

phentermine for Weight Loss: This is my 2nd follow up on this. I started taking the medication Dec 1st of 2011. When I first started this scared (because of what you hear about diet pills). The first week I will say I was in a dream like state until it leveled out. Then everything became easy. Choosing what I ate wanting to do more to lose weight. Dec 1st I weighted 290 and dropped the first 50 in Two Months. Well 1 year 1 month later I am proudly at 170... THATS 120 Pounds. And keeping it off. During this I was on the pill for two terms of 3 months. You can keep it off you just have to keep what your learned on the pill off the pill as well. Hope this Helps. It was a blessing to me. I had been overweight my whole life.

phentermine for Weight Loss: I've been using phentermine for 3 weeks and I've lost 13 pounds with no exercise that being said I don't just sit around all day either. And I have not changed what I eat at all but it just makes me eat so much less and not be hungry. Also listen to the label when it says eat afterwards. Days when I took my pill on a empty stomach I felt tired and sluggish all day. But once my stomach shrunk and I've gotten used to my new eating habit I have no problems other then the dry mouth gives me bad breath so I've been brushing like three times a day. Also I've been told that when you stop if you are not on a good diet and exercise schedule you will gain it all back.. Just something to keep in mind...overall great product!

phentermine for Weight Loss: I was almost overweight and it was time for me to lose weight. I tried going to the gym but I could never keep up with it. I tried dieting but I would starve to death and end up miserable. Then I decided to try this pill. The first two days, I had a little headache but it was all good from there. I used it for 1 month and lost about 22lbs. I continued to lose weight even after stopping. It has been 4 months since I stopped taking it and I have no gained back the weight. I definitely recommend this pill to anyone who is tired of not getting results. I have lost a total of 30lbs. This definitely changed my eating habits. I eat way healthier now and I feel great! Good luck to all of you!

phentermine for Weight Loss: I talked to my Dr about my struggle of dieting and exercising alone not helping me lose a pound! So he prescribed me a month and a half only 45 pills of Phentermine 37.5 the first day I was so dumb to not read the label but only the papers from the pharmacy that said to take one in the morning and another later that day so I took 2 that day and I did NoT sleep that whole day night till the very next night at around 3am and woke up @ 7 couldn't go back to sleep. The 2nd day I did take only 1 and I'm good now! Lost 5lbs the first 5days.

phentermine for Weight Loss: I started out at 233 pounds when I started to take phentermine. I lost a lot of weight over a course of the first 5 months then it tapered off for the 6th month. Then I took a month off and started to take it again for a second series. Over the two series I lost 100 pounds. I have gained 30 pounds back over the past 6 months and I am now back on phentermine to get the weight back off. I love the doctor that I see for weight loss because he makes it clear that it is not just taking a pill, it's a whole life style change from eating to exercising and triggers that make you eat things that are not healthy for you. This is my first day back on phentermine.

Adipex-P (phentermine) for Weight Loss: It would be nice if the public was warned of how dangerous it is to have any surgery while taking this medication! I was scheduled to have knee surgery, and forgot to list this as a medicine until I was telling the pre-op nurse my meds. She then went postal on me! Informing me that if I wasn't off of it for 2 weeks before surgery, I could possibly die from high blood pressure. What an eye opener!
