"I started taking the adipex Jan 15 2016 my starting weight was 232.7 and now It has been 3 weeks and I have only lost 5 lbs but I do have the dry mouth and no desire to eat which I make myself eat at least a small meal daily if I remember. I am hoping to get down to 180 so I am going to start exercising. I think everybody has a different experience with this pill but I am expecting great results I will update again in a couple of weeks!!!"

"When I started Adipex on 1/15/16 I weighed 224 lbs this is the heaviest I've ever been. My doctor said I hit a plateau. I work in a doctors office and when I went to work on 1/26/16 I weight 208 lbs! I weighed myself on 2 other scales because I couldn't believe it. I wasn't hungry at all but I knew my body needed nutrients so I have been having protein shakes. I drank 1 in the morning and one in the evening and I took a multivitamin everyday as well. I have literally lost 16lbs in 2 weeks. Excited to see what I weigh at the end of the month..."

"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?"

"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!"

"I took adipex for 6 months... my starting weight was 210.0 ... ending weight was 165.0 ... that was a year ago. This is MY advice. #1. You may not FEEL like eating... but do it anyways... or you'll slow your metabolism down to a crawl and stop losing weight. Just watch what you eat!! #2. Take vitamins!!!! By the time I hit 165# - my hair was starting to fall out, I couldn't focus, and I was constantly tired - sometimes I'd nearly pass out... because "I didn't feel hungry" and just wasn't really eating more than 500 calories a day. Even sitting STILL your body burns way more than that! #3. Be prepared to gain some of that back when you come off the pill. I wasn't prepared at all - and I gained it all right back. Still, great pill!"

"I started the pill on 10/9/15 I was 172.2 at the doctors, I'm a 24 year old female, 4"11 tall, weighed myself today 10/29/15 and I'm 11 pounds lighter! I'm 161.3! No cravings for sweets which I have/had a HORRIBLE sweet tooth, stopped eating fast food as much, cut it out more than half, can't wait to see more progress. I work 6 days a week as a stylist and have a 5 year old in school full time, working out is hard but I try to fit 30 min in either in the morning or at night, I use myfitnesspal to track my calorie intake, 1200 a day mostly less, dry mouth but as long as I drink my water all day I'm good. Will update next month!"

"Oct. 16th- 5'8 256 lbs Male Oct. 26th- 240 lbs even. 16 lbs - 10 days Loss of appetite which makes it easy to control how, what and when you eat. Dry mouth only if you don't drink lots of water which is absolutely necessary to dispose the fat your loosing. 1/2 pill- modest energy. Whole pill- bit shaky but I love shaky. Feels like a miracle is happening. Getting my life back slowly but surely."

"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."

"I took Adipex (37.5) from February 2012-April 2012 and in that span of time I went from 300 lbs down to 170 lbs. That is a loss of 130 lbs. I hardly ate anything but grilled chicken, fruit, and powerade. I walked at least 2 miles everyday. I got Pregnant at the end May 2012 so I had to stop taking it. My baby is now 2 years and 5 months and my weight has gone back up to a very uncomfortable 240 lbs. I still exercise regularly but not as often as I should. I have an appointment in 3 weeks to get adipex again and I am hoping and praying that I have the same results as before. This is a great aid in loosing weight for anybody who struggles with loosing weight by diet alone. Wish me luck...will update in 90 days!!!"

"I started taking adipex 37.5 on 6/23/15. My starting weight was 301. As of 06/25/15 I was at 291! Wow! I am very impressed because I have done NO exercise at all. On the other hand, I have NO desire to eat throughout the day. I eat fruit before I take it and drink plenty of water (helps with the dry mouth too), but today (06/26/15) I am not feeling like myself. I was very jittery and weak. I realized that for the past 4 days I've only eaten 2 bags of chips, 2 bananas, and some grilled chicken. I ate something today and immediately starting feeling better. I think I'm going to try to force myself to eat more because my body is not reacting well."

"I started phentermine on 5-26-2015. First day taking it, I got shaky, the chills, and my heart raced, but it will be 2 weeks tomorrow and those symptoms are no longer there. Unfortunately I don't get much energy as others described, but my appetite has decreased a lot and I get fuller easily. I've lost 15lbs so far, but I eat about 1300 to 1600 calories a day, and walk every day."

"Only 2 days in and I have zero appetite. I am focusing on weight lifting rather than cardio for my exercise and I have to force myself to eat so I get enough protein in, otherwise I truly believe I wouldn't eat a single thing all day. And even then, I'm extremely stuffed after just a few bites. I do get a bit jittery for an hour or two after taking my pill. I've also experienced what I'll call "pent up energy". I don't get energy like I want to run around cleaning the house, it's an energy like I want to go lift heavy weights. I would almost say it's an aggressive energy but in a violent or mean manner at all. I hope this continues to work as it has these first few days. If it does I'll reach my fat loss goal in no time"

"I started Adipex on 8/30/14 and as of 9/15/14 I've gone from 202 to 185lbs. 17lbs in a little over 2 weeks, I'm 5'6" and borderline diabetic. My doctor has been on me for the past 5 years to lose weight. She says I'm considered obese and will have to put me on medication for the diabetes soon, but my wake up call was when my joints started aching, and I was losing feeling in my feet. In addition to Adipex, I've eaten 85% clean, opting to snack on baby carrots instead of cheese and crackers. All I drink is water, I've cut out the alcohol, coffee and all fats and sweets. I walk everywhere and have lots of energy. I take 1 pill between 9:30 & 11am every day, and I fall asleep by 10:30pm. My goal is to be around 150lbs."
