For Weight Loss "I started Dec. 15th 2012 and this has been my life saver! I am 5'9 I was 252lbs when I weighed in. I couldn't believe it. I had never weighed that much. I used to be an athlete growing up and after 4 kids my metabolism slowed down to nothing. Within the 1st month I lost 22 lbs! I had lost 40lbs by month 3. Total I have lost 57lbs in 6 months. I have been allowed to take it continuously, but I personally tapered it off so I wouldn't become dependent on it. I still have a months worth of pills left over and I'm still losing! I walk for exercise, but nothing major. Gum helps for dry mouth and I drink a ton of water and eat off a small salad plate. My goal is 160lbs. I hope to reach that by August!"

For Weight Loss "I was at my highest weight of 272lbs on December 20, 2012. I went for surgery the 28th. Some how I had lost 14 lbs between then and the end of January. I went back in February for my 6 week check up and told my dr I had lost the 14 lbs. He asked me if I was happy about that? I said YES! So he asked if I wanted to lose more and that he had a nutrionist on board and if I was interested meet with her. That was the best decision I ever made!! I'm down 45 lbs now. Started my first pill March 21,2013 and my most recent June 2, 2013. My goal is to be 150lbs by end of 2013. I should be able to do it!!"

I haven't started exercise yet because I have a joint disorder in my foot but so far I'm down 9lbs in 3 days. Take pictures to note your progress and a food journal."

For Obesity "Started my first dose Thursday 4/25 weighing 222lbs. Today 4/30 I am at 209.5. That's a 12.5 lb loss in 6 days! Can't wait to see where I'm at on day 30! Only side effect I had was trouble sleeping. Started taking Unisom and problem solved. I never got dry mouth because I drink close to a gallon of water a day. So far so good so I'm going to keep on keeping on!"

For Weight Loss "Im 5'3 and tone easier than loose. So, I started taking Adipex t 4/22 at 178 As of today 4/29 at 167 So just in 1 weeks time I have lost 11 lbs. I drink at least 64 oz of ice water a day, most the time I'm over 100 oz. The first few days I did have dry mouth, but not so much anymore. 1200 cals is what I aim for but don't always get that many since I'm not hungry all the time anymore. I've been working out 5 days a week at least 35 minutes. I just had an inguernal hernia surgery, I can only do cardio I do: 15 minutes on a cycling machine 10 minutes on a treadmill 5 minutes on the elliptical (I push myself but this is my minimum) I use the LIVESTRONG free app My Plate & I track EVERYTHING from my water, exercise, food & weight."

For Weight Loss "I started Adipex on January 15, 2013. I am 24 years old 5'5 and my weight during that time was 259lbs sadly. Today it is April 23, 2013 and I have lost 38lbs! I have tried many other diet pills but never had any luck. I have tried to exercise and watch calories without the help of diet pills but it just wasn't working for me. Yes, there were side effects high blood pressure/high heart rate (WATCH FOR IRREGULAR HEART BEAT), If so call the doctor that gave medicine. As long as I drank a lot of water the side effects decreased and was tolerable. I would recommend this to anyone who has a hard time sticking to diet and exercise. This pill has worked great for me. Drink only water, get rid of sugar. Walk at least on mile a day."

For Weight Loss "I was prescribed phentermine/Adipex for weight loss after I discussed with my doctor my lack of energy being a full time single working mother and time and motivation were really my issues contributing to my weight. She said this would give me the motivation and "want" to exercise and is an appetite suppressant. Those two things are very true. I work a desk job and cannot exercise until evening so that is hard. Day 1 and 2 I was on the go all day and felt fantastic, full of energy, and very happy. Day 3 I had several negative side effects of high blood pressure, heart pounding, fatigue, insomnia. Day 4 I had the dose cut in half by my doctor. Today is Friday, day 5, and I have lost 9.5 pounds since Monday. Hoping to see more loss but slower!"

For Weight Loss "I'm 5'3 and weigh 196lbs and I started taking Adipex on 4/5 and on 4/8 I weighed 193lbs. The first day it made me very jittery and have dry mouth very bad. I have also walked on the treadmill for thirty mins since I started the Adipex. I have lost a pound a day. It helps me to eat smaller portions. My goal weight is 150lbs."

For Weight Loss "I am 5'1" and weighed 192.2 when I saw the doctor. Exercise and dieting weren't helping me and he was concerned the weight may be the reason why my blood pressure is high and why my PCOS has been acting out. So he put me on Adipex-P and so far so good. I have lost 5 lbs in 10 days since starting the medication. I feel super energetic too."

For Weight Loss "I have been taking Adipex for 4 days now. I have lost 13 pounds somehow. I changed my eating to only in taking 1000 calories a day. I take half a pill in the morning and half a pill at noon. I have severe dry mouth and drink about 10 bottles of water a day. I am having trouble sleeping for the last 2 days. I get the jitters really bad about 30 mins after I take the pill, it lasts for a few hours. No issues with my heart rate! I am hungry until my stomach hurts I was a over eater so its pretty painful! With all that this pill is worth it I am excited about my progress so far and can't wait to see what I can get down to in a few months!"

For Weight Loss "I am a 32 year old male, 6'2" 318 before I started taking Adipex. I was a college football player, so I know how to diet and exercise. However after having a few kids involved in EVERYTHING, a good job, and a wife that is an incredible cook, I packed on the LBS! Adipex has given me the energy to hit the gym, and stay involved once I get home too, no crash and burn like a lot of those "energy supplements". I do get dry mouth everyday. The first week or so I would almost forget to eat. You have to force yourself to eat, so if your going to do that you might as well eat healthy. I am working out 4 times a week for an hour at time. If I had to guess I am down about 20lbs, I go back to the doctor next week for a weigh in and refill."

For Weight Loss "I just turned 30 last month. I started Adipex in November 2012. Lost 10 lbs and thought I could keep going without the pills. Ended up gaining all the 10 back, plus another 10 after all the holidays. I was 230 lbs, 5ft 7 in. I got back on Adipex 4 weeks ago and I am now 210 lbs!! I only get to the gym maybe 3 times a week. I used to get dry mouth, so drank more water. I pretty much ate what I wanted, but a lot less of it considering the pills make me not hungry at all. So now starting strict diet, I should be able to lose more than 20 lbs a month!"

For Weight Loss "My Dr. prescribed Adipex Oct 5th 2012. I was at 287lb 5%u20198%u201D and 57 years old, struggling to lose any weight but nothing, together with the Adipex my Dr. gave me other instructions, like what to eat and also to exercise. I have had no kind of side effect unless you call no appetite a side effect. I make sure that I eat at least 1200 calories daily I also exercise for 1 hour and 10 minutes every day, 7 days per week, no excuses, no nonsense. I find that when you make up your mind and heart everything was good. I%u2019m at 236lb I have the energy of a 25 year old, I%u2019m looking better and feeling better. Soon I%u2019ll reach my goal of 180lb. Feb 23, 2012."

For Weight Loss "I have been on Adipex for almost two years. When they say it not a such thing as a miracle pill they haven't tried this. 10 pounds from my goal of losing 150 pounds. My weight loss has slowed down a bit but as long as the numbers go down and not up, I'm still happy. I did experience extremely dry mouth, dizziness and loss of appetite for the first two months.. BUT IT WAS WORTH EVERY BIT. Now I'm starting to have sleeping problems which I don't like. I am very scared if I stop taking it I'm going to gain my Weight back. "

For Weight Loss "I started Adipex (phentermine) on June 26th 2012. I weighed 239 lbs and I am 5'4, 42 year old female. I had the typical spare tyre that women have a tendency to get over 40. I was obese and in danger of getting a number of diseases that would have affected the rest of my life such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease. I have come a long way I am down to 178 lbs as of today. I am beginning to have a show down in results. I need to increase my exercise as I only lost 6 lbs the last month. I did however manage to lose 11 pounds over thanksgiving and Christmas. The doctor is extremely pleased with my progress as is my husband. He has a new wife. I have never felt better. I have dropped 10 sizes. 28 pounds to goal. Go me."
