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 jessicajade:
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!

Review by Lmilli (taken for less than 1 month):
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.

Review by Drano33 (taken for less than 1 month):
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.

Review by KortneyR93:
I've been taking Adipex capsules for 1 week now and I am down 11 pounds. I don't exercise. The pill just makes me not want to eat. I have to make myself eat. I also have severe dry mouth, so I drink water way more now. The only other side effect I have is heart flutters. But I can handle that, because it happened to me before I was on Adipex.

I've been on Adipex for 6 days now and have lost 12 pounds. I'm really happy about that but I've had constant diarrhea every day since then and have become very dehydrated. Be cautious of the side effects.

Review by Townsend12twins28:
3/19/14 Went to the Dr and asked about starting Adipex. I was extremely unhappy with myself, I stepped on a scale a few days before this and realized I weighed 250 I have never been this big I am 5'10". I started taking the medicine and walking every day at least a mile then walking has led to jogging and crunches. I still have my Sweet tooth but not like before with the medicine and willpower on 4/11/2014, I weighed in at 232. I didn't even realize I have lost that much my goal was to lose 30 lb by July 4 and I believe I will well exceed my goal!

Review by RetiredMilitarywyfe (taken for less than 1 month):
I was just prescribed Adipex today (FINALLY). Long story short - I was about 30 pounds overweight in 2002 when my husband was deployed to the war. I decided t use that time to LOSE WEIGHT. I got the meds, and in 5 months I had already lost 55 pounds! I was thrilled. I wouldn't send my husband a photo of me, because I wanted to surprise him. Boy was he! He stopped in his tracks and mouthed %u1E84OW Then three years later I got a brain tumor. The cancer medications, and the steroids that I had to take to try to control the tumor, made me GAIN it all back PLUS another 45 pounds! (Plus I lost my hair). Well fast forward about 8 years, I have lost 55 lbs. Doc prescribed Adipex to help get the rest off! Wish me luck!

Review by Alice Wonderland:
I've been on this medicine off and on for 6 months. I've lost about 30 pounds. My cycle is 1 month on and one month off. If you take it more than a month your body gets used to it. I have found giving the body a rest and allowing the metabolism to adjust without works best for long term weight loss and maintaining. I started at 180, currently at 150. I get bad side effects, but seeing the scale move and clothes fit motivates me to move on. If you exercise with this medicine it can make you nauseated and cause vomiting. Exercising first thing in the morning, then taking the medicine works best to prevent nausea and vomiting. Also, I find it important for users to change eating habits. Suggest clean eating 6 days on 1 day off.

Review by Shotyme (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I started in Adipex Feb 16th. I weighed in at 308lbs, the heaviest I've ever been. As of March 27th I am now 260 lbs and going. I run 5 miles everyday and totally changed my life style. Drinking lots of water I probably go through a case and a half a week. I did experience the dry mouth and a serious boost of energy the first day I took it. After that it's just been dry mouth but hey I'm accustomed to drinking a ton of water. If you change your lifestyle and hit the gym it works.

Review by Miiki (taken for less than 1 month):
I lost five pounds in three weeks. I took the pill five days a week and took a break over the weekend. I definitely ate more when I did not take the pill. Overall, I have been eating healthy prior to taking the pill, but this has definitely helped me to avoid rush eating of sweets and other unhealthy things at times when I would be very hungry or stressed. The pill alone is not enough. Exercising on a regular basis makes a big difference. I'm looking to lose five more pounds by the end of this month.

Review by adipex user:
I love this pill I take a whole pill every morning. I have lots of energy! I started 3 days ago and I have lost 7 pounds since then. It curves my appetite all day until about 5:00pm then I normally eat a piece of grilled chicken and drink water! But I would definitely say that you need to work out along with it because I think that's how mine is dropping so fast! My doctor told me that if he doesn't think a patient is losing what they should, he stops prescribing it.
