"I started Adipex 11 days ago and have currently lost 15 lbs. I take 1/2 pill in the morning and the other half at lunch. I drink lots of water and refrain from sweets and fried foods. I exercise once a week. Very impressed!"

"This is the second time I'm taking this pills. The first time I lost 30 pounds in just a few short weeks. Now I've been on them for almost a month now and I've lost 17 pounds. Theses pills really help curb your appetite and I don't even think of eating."

"I started adipex three days ago and I've already lost 3 pounds. It really curves my appetite and I'm always craving water, which is great. I have a boost of energy like never before. I was able to do 45mins on the treadmill which felt like I had only done 10 mins. So far I'm loving it. Im 219 now and by the end of the month Im hoping to be out of the 200+ club. I will update in four weeks ☺"

"I started Adipex 4/16 exactly 6 days ago. I started at 181lbs I am now down to 176.4lbs. I have had occasional headaches and dry mouth, but as long as I keep losing this weight I need to lose I can deal with it. My goal is to lose all my pregnancy weight I put on with my second baby. 28 more pounds to go!!"

"I took Adipex for the past 3 months as prescribed. I weighed 190 lbs. with type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. The first month I loss 20 lbs. The 2nd month 4 lbs and 3rd month 4 lbs. I played volleyball 2x a week with helped. I could have loss more but I hate exercising if it's not volleyball. My 1st month the insomnia was nightly. The dry mouth was all the time. Try chewing gum. I drank more water than I'm used to but it was good for me. Constipation was a problem. Try fibre pills or Phillips or stool softener for constipation. Lots of energy. 2nd month, sleep was better. I felt great because I could feel those 20 lbs. off and my clothes were so baggy. Lots of energy. I slightly started to want to eat. 3rd month. Total loss= 28 lbs."

"I have taken adipex before and lost 70 lbs in 3 months. I ran two miles everyday and ate lean cuisines. I was on a 1200 calorie diet. It took me two years to gain the weight back, being in college life gets busy and it just happened. Now I'm back on it and have lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks. I recommend it to anyone who is serious about losing weight. You have to work hard to see amazing results, but it's completely worth it. From the comments I've seen some people were only prescribed it for 2 or 3 months, it may be a location issue but my doctor in MS will prescribe adipex for a patient for 6 months out of the year."

"So I have always been a big girl! I have 3 kids and with each pregnancy there was added weight that just carried over and you know how the story goes...I pushed myself and my wants and needs to the side and took care of everyone but myself. The more weight I put on the more depressed I got. I got to 280lbs!!!! My body was in constant pain and discomfort and I knew I had to stop and do do something about it. I started the pills last year and lost a total of 125lbs!!! Not just the pills but I started the gym, did zumba 3 times a week and started eating good. The pills aren't the magic fix. They just help you kind of like a kick start. Sure I had side effects!!!! But nothing that would out weight being close to 300lbs."

"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."

"I am a male and started taking Adipex exactly one month ago. I am 5"5' and weighed 186 pounds on the day I started. After 30 days, I have lost 18.5 pounds. I have balanced the use of this prescription by doing my best to eat a low fat....and low sodium diet. Not dramatic, but just as good as I can. Other than walking, I have done minimal exercise - but only because its a struggle fitting in gym time with work and family. The weight loss was very quick the first week, then leveled off at about 1/2 pound - 1 pound a day. My doctor stressed the importance of eating at the appropriate and perfect times after taking the medicine. She equated it to lighting charcoal on a grill and placing the meat on at the perfect time..>not too early/late"

"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"

"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. "

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."
