Reviews for Adipex-P
For Obesity "I tried Adipex before I got pregnant with my third baby, and I lost almost twenty pounds in a month with this combined with Atkins diet. I did notice that my body started getting used to them so on Monday when I get them I will only take them five days a week. I really hope they help me again I really want to wear a bathing suit this summer."

For Weight Loss "Update after 7 days: Starting Weight: 161.4lbs Current Weight: 158.4lbs I started off taking a 1/2 tablet in the morning, 30 mins before breakfast. First few days were okay, took the edge off hunger for sure, but I felt unfocused. On day 5, I traveled out of town and started feeling a little nauseous, so I held this medicine on days 6 and 7. I slept so much these two days and was very hungry. I was just so relieved to not be nauseated that I allowed myself to eat some not so healthy foods on these two days. This is partly why I do not think I lost much weight this first week. I started back on my 1/2 tablet regimen this morning and feel quite good. I think the nausea may have been related to a certain food I had eaten."

For Weight Loss "Day 4, taking 1/2 tablet of the 37.5mg. Decreased appetite, more energy, some dry mouth here and there. I've noticed at some times a decrease in concentration, like a foggy feeling. Nothing too bad, but a little off my baseline. Haven't weighed since day 1. Hoping to lose 15 lbs this month. I like that I don't feel "cracked out" but I am hesitant to up my dosage yet. I'll keep taking the 1/2 tab until I get really used to it. Once I reach my GW I plan to wean myself off in the same way. Will update. -BusyBE"

For Weight Loss "I love love love Adipex! It took me about a week to get used to all the side effects but when you realize how much weight you are losing the side effects aren't even in your mind anymore, I started taking Adipex Jan 24th 2014. Weighing 210 pounds. Today is now Feb 19th not even a month later and I now weigh 185. That is 25 pounds down in just one month. I work out (run a mile, ellipitical, 20 min abs) 5 to 6 days a week and I only eat 1000 to 1300 calories a day! This pill is amazing and everyone needs to try it, that is wanting to lose weight."

For Weight Loss "I have been taking Adipex for about 5-6 years. All I can say is that some of you will feel bad or very bad after taking it but most important is to take vitamins and minerals along with Adipex. I had back pain, heart racing then even I felt like my heart stopped for 2 seconds, scary but I started to listen to my body. I drank lots of water, ate loads of spinach and leafy greens and vitamins, vitamins all the time. It is also strongly advisable not to eat any meat or heavy meals. Please remember that despite the fact that you got loads of energy, uyor bowels are sleeping, you can hardly feel any movement in your stomach. Phentermine is blocking the "hunger centre" in your brain. I hope it helps. I have reduced all side effects I've had."

For Weight Loss "I started taking Adipex in Sept and went in on Dec 7th for my three month check in and I lost 38 pounds. I am 5' 8" and began weighing in at 259 and am now down to 221 and this is without including exercise. Walking is part of my daily routine, I walk a lot throughout the day as I'm running between classes and then to go to work. I did experience some side effects the first week like being light headed, dizziness and a dry mouth. But I use that to increase my water intake. My doctor actually recommended I only take it about 5 days a week so that my body doesn't become so used to it and that's what I have been doing. So far, so good and I can't wait to continue losing weight."

For Obesity "I am 5'5", and 31 yo. I have been overweight my whole life. Even as a child. At my heaviest I weighed 256lbs. I could hardly make it up and down the stairs. That is when I started taking Adipex. I am now 149lbs, and feel amazing! I know that there are side effects with every medicine, but there are also side effects to being overweight. Honestly, it is not easy to being weaned off. You have to work hard everyday, not to cave into the cravings, and keep active. It gave me the edge I needed to make that life change. Other friends that have tried using Adipex, but could no stick to the diet and exercise plan and lost little to no weight! You need to want to make the change, the pills just help."

For Weight Loss "The first 3 weeks of this medication I lost 17lbs, with little to no side effects. However, at exactly the 3 week mark I began having nothing but watery bowel movements accompanied by gas like cramps. This has gone on for 4 weeks almost everyday. I have now lost a total of 30lbs. So yes, it curbs hunger, charges your metabolism, but you can't leave the house to show off your weight loss or be active because you are stuck in the bathroom for hours at a time. I am now quitting Adipex so that it does not cause long term problems. It's a great kick start for a lifestyle change but the side effects are not worth it to me."

For Weight Loss "Started taking the pills on Saturday on Tuesday I was down four lbs. My first three days I felt lightheaded and had headaches at night. I love this medicine I have no desire to eat. Now I can finally get rid of the carbs, and by my third month I hope I never go back to them."

For Weight Loss "I have nothing but good things to say about this pill. The first time I was on it I started it in Feb of 2012 and stopped due to death of my mom in June 2012. My start weight was 210lbs and I am 5'6". When my mom passed I weighed 179lbs. I was supposed to be on the meds until September so I lost 49lbs in 4 months and I felt awesome. Until that day in June where my world came crashing down. I just recently went back on the pill weighing in at 205lbs and now I am down to 191lbs. It is working a little slower the second time around but now I am a stay at home mom of three and haven't really been able to exercise since I have been on besides my regular running around after the kids. No side effects."

For Obesity "I am just over halfway through my 3 month Adipex regimen and am feeling great. For anyone struggling with weight loss, I highly recommend asking your doctor about Adipex. My physician was very quick to prescribe it as soon as I asked about it, as he could tell I did my research. I am 5'5, 25 y/o, and started at 193.5lbs. The biggest pro about this medication is that it almost completely rid me of my uncontrollable cravings (I don't even think about chocolate anymore). With that out of the way, I am now able to more easily make healthy changes to my lifestyle. I have started eating more vegan-like and making being active part of my daily life. So far I am down 19.7 pounds. I feel like myself again!"

For Weight Loss "I am a 20 years old male, I was never involved in sports in high school. I started taking Adipex February of 2013, it is now June and I have lost 57 lbs! I have gotten off the medicine for about a month now and only take a pill every now and then as I start to lose my motivation but coming from 334 lbs and only being 5'10" it is amazing the difference you feel in your entire body. I am a full time college student and that makes it hard to focus on your health, but Adipex does it for me. I have had the dry mouth and it does tend to make me extremely irritable sometimes, but still does the job I have gone from a 48 in jeans to a 44 and some 42s fit."

For Weight Loss "About 8 years ago I was put on the antidepressant Lexapro, only to gain a massive amount of weight between Christmas and Easter. I was so shocked and it wasn't until one of my brutally honest acquaintances gave me the 'what the hell happened' look. My doctor moved me onto phentermine, and while it took a few weeks to kick in, once it did, it was great. But you have to work out also, and drink lots of water. Cravings for fast food and pizza do disappear. I felt awesome by the end of the summer and was at my lowest weight ever. Now here's the hard part: life after phentermine. This loses its effect rapidly. Use it wisely and you'll be successful."

For Weight Loss "I am 5'8 and was weighing in at 198. I asked my doctor for help and he prescriped Adipex and I can say it is the most amazing weight loss pill/tool available. I was ordered to take one pill a day but I started with (and still take) half a pill and for 3 days I didn't stop moving. The energy was amazing, I have absolutely no appetite, I only ate because I knew I had to. I only slept for about 2 hours at night during those first 3 days but after about a week of taking the pill, my sleeping became regular again. I have been on Adipex for a little over a month and have lost 18 lbs. I am still only taking half a pill and only taking it 3 days a week and my appetite has come back slowly but nothing like it was before. And no side effects!"
