"I started Adipex back in 2011 and within 5 months I was down 40lbs, looked and felt amazing. I'm 5'11", male and started at 250lbs, At the peak of Adipex working I got down to 175lbs with minimal working out but I worked at a job on my feet all day and active. In 2012 I left my active job for a desk job and stopped smoking... I gained around 20lbs... unfair but understandable. I was then told by my doctor that she wanted to take me off of it because I had plateaued and she didn't think it was working... 2 years later and I'm up to 265lbs, and miserable. I've started Adipex again but it doesn't appear to be working... I'm drastically less active but I'm seeing no change. Great for short time... but it will catch up when you stop."

"I am doing Adipex as well as Medifast. Medifast is hard to stay in fat burn state because I cheat now and then, but now with Adipex added I have no cravings or urge to eat until the end of the day and since it's been working so well I choose healthy meals. I started at 161 on Oct. 26, 2015 and today Nov. 2, 2015 I'm already down to 157. My doctor said I am not obese but I am overweight due to PCOS. PCOS is awful trying to loose weight and so far the Adipex is the only steady thing that fits my lifestyle. I don't always have time to meal prep which is also why Medifast is great. 100 calories 5 times a day and 1 lean and green meal that adds up to around 300-400 calories so 800-900 calories a day. I split the pill half in the am and half @ 12"

"I just tried this medicine because I had continuously heard it worked. I will say I felt alot of energy for the first couple of hours after taking it and I did lose 5 pds the first two days..which was GREAT! but... I experienced terrible side effects..other than the normal dry mouth, some jitters and restlessness... I experienced severe mood swings, irritability and I became angry out of no where. I know side effects are different for everyone.. This was my personal experience.. I Think the medicine could've really helped me with losing weight, but I'm not willing to have the side effects. Good luck to everyone!!"

"This is an update from my previous post. I am down from 204.4 to 174 - just slightly over 30 pounds since beginning adipex in 7/31/15. I am just taking 1/2 a pill per day now and will most likely go every other day this week. Still exercising doing T25 daily and walking 3-6 miles per day although I have begun doing a treadmill workout when it's too cold and increasing the incline to burn more calories. Still shooting for 1200 calories per day - hardly and alcohol - high protein. I will be happy with 14 more pounds but will most likely try to hit 20. Happy happy!"

"Im in my 30 5'6 and my starting weight was 276. In the first month I lost 24 pounds. The second month I lost 8 more. I stopped because I felt like my body was getting accustomed to it. So one month later I went to the doctor to get more pills. I started taking a week ago and I lost 10 more pounds. From the beginning I watch what I ate. I drank water and when I was tired of drinking water I would drink a small bottle of powerade to get some flavor. The doctor told me to be on a 1200 calorie diet but I choose 500 to help the process. I was a size 22 and now I'm between 16 and 18 depending on the clothing. So I lost a total of 45 pounds being actively on the pill for 2 months 1 week. Im happy...can't complain."

"I began taking this pill every morning starting in June of 2015. In order to keep going on the pill, the doctor said I had to be losing weight every month or I would be taken off (partly because I'm only 19). I began losing 10lbs a month by taking the pill and working out about 3 times a week with my aunt. That was during the summer and I knew I would be leaving my aunt for my next year of college and I was worried about self-discipline. I should also mention that my diet during the summer improved tremendously. Before the beginning of my health kick in June, I ate fast food on a daily basis, STARCH WAS MY BEST FRIEND. I started focusing more on meat than bread when I began being more healthy. I barely ate fast food"

"I totally love it. I've been on it 6 days & has already lost 4.6lbs. I'm staying away from sugar and bread. I only drink water & powerade. I'm hoping to lose 15 more lbs by Thanksgiving. I use MyFitness Pall to track my calories & carbs."

"This is only Day 1 for me, but I am taking the Phentermine capsules and not the pills so I can't cut mine in half. I took it at around 6am in the morning on an empty stomach, but I drank 2 glasses of water behind it. Around 6:45, I literally felt like Scarlett Johansen and Forest Gump at the same time. It seemed like the world was in high def focus and I felt like I could run for hours and not get tired. It's now 11:26am and I feel more normal. Still focused, but not as ready to explode with energy. My mouth is slightly dry, but nothing taking a sip of water can't cure or candy. I think I've drank 48 oz of water today already. So make sure you have water on hand bc you will be thirsty. I'm excited to lose 30 lbs. I'll update in 7 days!"

"I started taking adipex on Sunday September 27, 2015. My weight was 219.4 pounds. This morning, exactly ten days later I am weighing 213.2. I feel great. The only side effect is the extremely dry mouth. I try to drink a lot of water. My sleep is not like it was but I have noticed a slight improvement theses last three days. I think it's worth the discomforts."

"I began taking adipex in 7/31/15. I weighed in at 204.4 at my annual Gyn appt and was disgusted that I had let myself get that heavy. I hadn't weight that much when I was pregnant with my kids. I am 5'8". My goal was to lose 15 pounds by Labor Day. I was down 17 by that point. I am now 22.4 pounds down and beginning my last month on it. I use my fitness pal and try to keep to 1200 calories per day, high in protein. I generally get in 4-7 miles a day walking and do a 25 minute exercise video 6 days per week. I am hopeful that I have finally changed my lifestyle. I needed the jumpstart. Only side effects early were dry mouth - I drink lots of water. I plan to cut down to 1/2 pill a day this month. Love how it's working."

"I started off at 277 lbs 8/20/2014. My doctor prescribed 37.5 mg 5 days on, 2 days off so I could stay on it for a longer period of time without building a tolerance. I cut the pill in 1/2 and followed the 5 days on, 2 days off for 6 months before having to take the whole pill 5 days on, 2 days off. Because Dr had prescribed the full amount and I only took 1/2 it doubled my medicine but I picked up my monthly prescription so I'd have extra when needed. Dr. cut me off at 7 months even though I was still loosing so I was glad I had saved extra to continue. Few Dr.s warn about tolerance, 5/2 works so that doesn't happen. I weigh 203 after 1 year, going back for another prescription soon. Do your part, eat right, it works."

"At a starting weight w a new doctor 440 lbs. I tried adipex. I only took it a week before I stopped due to headaches, heart racing just getting up to go to bathroom. But with sheer willpower alone in one year I lost 120 lbs . After losing average 10 lbs a month my weight leveled out and I couldn't get but 5 lbs a month. So we decided to try Adipex again. I started Aug 15 at 316 now Sept.13- 295lb. This time no side effects I'm exercising more and feeling great. Hoping for the best"

"i recently went to see a doctor for weight loss! Before I even had a minute to fill out my paper on my history, he asks me what kind of pills I want? I was like (huh?), then he explained about adipex, when I say explained, all he said was take it once a day, diet , come see me in 30 days! I thought this was crazy, he told me to bring back my paper work Monday! ANYWAY, I took it as he prescribed one a day, for only two days and have to stop! I am a recovering alcoholic /addict, this crap gave me the exact same feeling as meth, in which I have not used in 15 years. I was high!! I cannot jeopardize my sobriety so I guess I'll stay fat! But this doctor maybe should have took 5 minutes with me to explain or ask something about me!"

"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."

"I started taking Adipex on 7/14/15 and I'm already down 13 pds. Today is 7/31/15. I do workout daily for 1 hr but it's hard to eat all the time. I have to make myself eat. The problem that I am having now is in the afternoon after my wkout classes I'm hungry but I stick with low calorie options. Can someone shed some light on staying full all day... Oh yea and the sleep pattern is out the window!"
