Reviews for Adipex-P to treat Weight Loss
Review by keddanicole (taken for 1 to 6 months):
This pill works! I do advise that you eat breakfast wait 30 mins and drink water throughout the day. If you don't get hungry eat something wholesome. My experience with headache, and mood swings was due to me not feeling hungry, yet my body still needed fuel. Listen to your body! I'm at a weight that I'm happy with. I do exercise its my therapy. One seventy three from 205! Also it helps with my blood pressure. Eating is so much easier. I can think about what I need to prepare versus just grabbing the first snack, not so good choice that would satisfy me. Know your body, breath don't over think, be happy. This is coming from me!It helped along with small positive changes. Peace!!

I just started taking Adipex. I think so far it's helping me a ton, I'm on 1000 calorie diet plus Adipex. I'm working out every day, this is my 5th day and I already lost 6 pounds. Adipex seems to be helping me from over eating, it seems to be helping me curb my cravings. I have no craving for sweets of any kind, so far so good.

I was personally not on this pill, but my mom was and currently still is. Though she has lost about 20 lbs in the last month or so, she has been experiencing side effects. First off, she's had severe headaches since starting the medicine. She's had extreme mood swings, and is very nauseas and dizzy at times.

Review by BusyBE519 (taken for 1 to 6 months):
My last post was in February 2014. To sum up my experience: starting weight: 161.4, height 5'3. Received two total bottles of 37.5mg pills, which lasted me from February '14 to June '14. I would halve pills, skip days, etc if I felt the need, so these lasted quite awhile. My lowest weight once all was said and done: 141.2 on June 20th, 20.2 lbs lost. Today, Jan 30 2015, I weigh 146.2. I am happy that in 7 months time I've only managed to gain 5 lbs (AND after the holidays thank you very much!). This pill is great, but it's not a miracle. It also won't last forever as you can only have 3 refills a year if you meet the BMI requirement for medical weight loss. Taught me portion control

Review by Godz da Bomb!!! (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I loved the product! I started June 1, 2014 to August 2014. IN 2 MONTHS I HAD LOST 30 LBS! I was doing Zumba 3 times a week and had a personal trainer to help tone my body with my new found ENERGY. The Personal Trainer was a waste because Adipex with Zumba was doing a tremendous job all on its own. I wasn't craving sweets thanks to Adipex. I cut out fast foods, carbs, and late night eating. Plus I drank anywhere from 1/2 to a gallon A DAY! However, the medicine still made me constipated. I started at 244 and got down to 209lbs. I stopped using it for about 5 months AND THE WEIGHT STAYED OFF, while not eating so healthy.

Review by Blahkuhhh:
I am 20 years old and I have always had problems with weight loss since I was in middle school. I went to the doctor and was prescribed Adipex. I have been on a low carb diet and I have been on Adipex for 9 days now and have lost 6 pounds so far. I am very happy with the results right now and I'm hoping to keep at it and try to reach my goal weight! I am 5'4 and before I started the diet I weighed in at 192lbs and so far I am down to 186lbs. My goal weight is 145 to 150lbs!

Review by hml1991:
I would recommended this diet pill to anyone, it works great and the energy boost allows you to do your daily activities with no drained feeling after. I would advise a daily routine, sit ups, push ups, walking, etc. Of some type. I'm a mother of 2 boys, 4yr & 3 1\2 month old, my stomach has stretched a bit, I was on it after my first son and went from 176 and dropped to 125 and was only on it for 2months, the weight stayed off til my 2nd pregnancy, naturally I gained so I'm now on it again, but due to more stretching my muscles are weaker in my abdomen, if you rely solely on the pill you will loose weight and appear thinner but you will have saggy ecsess skin, you must tighten as you shrink. Chances increase due to rapid weight loss.

Review by Rachaelrose:
Started taking Adipex and I was at my highest weight ever. I was at 218lb. I currently am down 42lbs and now sitting at a weight of 176lb. Adipex really does help curb your appetite. Only down fall I've found was that the dry mouth can be a tad irritating at times. I drink on a daily basis probably around 2-3 gallons of water before I started taking Adipex and now with this medication I am almost doubling my water intake just because no matter what for me my mouth is always dry. It is a side effect that I am willing to live with though with the type of results I am getting. I have also lost 20 inches off my entire body since the process has started. I do go to the gym 4 days a week and I do cardio and weights as well.

Review by Attheshelb (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I was prescribed Adipex on Nov 10, 2014. I weighed 155 pounds. To some that might not seem like a lot, but it was to me. I had tried working out and eating right and nothing was helping. Today, Dec 22 I weighed 135. I have steadily lost weight since starting it. I skip some days and still feel energetic and not as hungry. The first week on Adipex, I had the worst dry mouth. I couldn't drink enough water. I still an pretty thirsty but it's manageable. Drinking water helps the medicine work better. I have also changed my eating habits to use when the pills are up. The first night I didn't sleep, but now I can go to bed no problem. This medication isn't a quick fix, it simply is helping you make life style changes to keep weight off.

Review by Frances8 (taken for 1 to 2 years):
Adipex-P worked for me. I lost the weight and I'm keeping it off. I haven't become resistant to the medicine at all. The generic brand is different - I had a headache and dry mouth. The name brand - no problems. I'm continuing to take it under the supervision of my doctor. I have no side effects, I feel good and I'm at a good weight. I exercise and stay on a low carb/high protein diet. This medicine rescued me from the weight loss merry-go-round.

Review by madysson (taken for less than 1 month):
I've been on Adipex for 3 days now and I've lost 5 pounds. I'm 5'2 and started out at 221.2 pounds three days ago. This morning I got on the scale at I'm at 216. I've read a lot of reviews and its about %50 people who love it and %50 people who hate it. My main concern is the reviews where people say the minute they stop the pill the weight comes right back plus more. But so far so good for me.

Started Adipex 2 weeks ago. Lost 20 lbs so far! I even skip the pill 1 to 2 times a week. The energy loss is aweful those days though.

Review by ZPaulIsShrinkingfast:
I started Adipex-P nine months ago and I've consistently lost weight. When I weighed in at the Dr.s today, I am down 20.6lbs since last month! I've lost a total of 83lbs and was approved for my left knee replacement on Nov 18. When that heals, we do the other one. I have battled obesity my whole life- had gastroplasty (stomach stapling) back in the early 80s and I've lost and gained hundred pounds during time periods in my life and I've got hope now that there may be a light at the end of the Tunnel. When I get my knee joints in and get active I think I really might be able to get down to a decent weight and make it stick. I'd like a second chance at life, to find a wife to spend my retirement years with. Staying Positive!

I took phentermine for six weeks and lost 22 pounds. I'm 25 years old. My starting weight was 182lbs now I'm 165lbs. This pill is the best I've been off for three months and have only gained back five pounds. I will restart again in November.

Review by SlimInTheMaking (taken for less than 1 month):
I know everyone is looking for a miracle weightloss pill well let me tell you Adipex is not it. Adipex in my opinion is a special."Helper" yes it definetly suppresses your appetite and gives you a boost of energy. But ultimately you have to change your lifestyle to compliment this. I cut out sugary foods, fast foods, fried foods, and carbs. I drink plenty of water, and workout 3 times a a week with cardio. I do 4 and half miles on the treadmill on a 8.0 incline. Tomorrow makes a whole month and I have lost 25lbs total... And I'm going into my second month fighting harder.

Review by courtcourt:
I started Adipex a year ago. Lost 50lbs in 3mos. Then got pregnant. Had him 2 months ago. And only gained 15lbs during and lost right away. But I still didn't reach my goal. So I'm on it again. I'm on day 4 and down 5lbs. I love this pill! Never exercised or dieted before but I'm going try this time.

I started Adipex on 8-18-14 & today is 8-25-14. I am down 8 pounds in a week. I hope this kind of weight loss continues but I'll have to wait & see. I did experience a little bit of nausea for the first few days but it wasn't too bad & dry mouth a little. So far I am pretty pleased.

Review by Kristy P. (taken for 6 months to 1 year):
I started off on the highest mg which is 37.5 and it has worked very well for me. In my first month I had lost 26lbs and in 6 months, I lost a total of 90lbs. I DID NOT EAT HEALTHY NOR DID I EXERCISE. I took a break from it a couple of months back because it's not safe to take it for an extended period of time due to the fact that it takes a toll on your liver. I just got back on it again yesterday. It will cause you to have DRY MOUTH, CONSTIPATION, URGES TO DRINK LOTS OF WATER, ENERGY, ABILITY TO STAY FOCUSED, INSOMNIA, FAST HEART RATE, MOOD SWINGS, NAUSEA AND EASES BODY PAIN. I have a heart murmur and panic attacks so after taking this medication, I notice it gets harder for me to breath as the day goes by.

Review by Chi(c)K1 (taken for less than 1 month):
I started taking Adipex on July 15, and I must say I have definitely seen a difference in my eating habits and it's only been 3 days! Amazing! I was 127lbs in 2012 and somewhere along the line I lost the will to work out and stay fit. Needless to say I gained about 35lbs since then so I am giving Adipex a try and it's doing wonders for my appetite! I experienced dry mouth the first day and that's the only side affect I have had. I eat a yogurt for lunch and dinner is 2 turkey sandwiches on wheat bread, and I drink 2-3 bottles of water a day. Eating right and exercise are key to helping drop weight quicker! Once you stop taking the pill you must maintain good eating habits along with exercise or the weight will come back plus more!

Review by cjhurley28:
I have been on this medicine for nearly one week. I have lost 8lbs since starting this medicine. I take half a dose on a empty stomach and then drink protein drinks both for breakfast and lunch. Then eat a light supper and been eating about 1100 calories or less a day. I go to the gym about 3 to 4 time a week. I have noticed every day a change in my weight. I haven't had any side effects my blood pressure been running great. I don't experience any nausea or vomiting with this medicine while working out. I am planning taking this medicine for 1 month and then taking rest and start it again.
