Reviews for Adipex-P
For Weight Loss "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"

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Obesity "I started on 8/24/15 as of today 9/6 I have lost 10 lbs, just under 2 weeks. I only take half a pill which is just fine for me. I have very little appetite, I force myself to eat. I'm staying under 1200 calories per day, more like 800. My cravings for sweets are gone! This is strange for me because I love sweets. I'm not eating any bread or drinking any soda. Lots of water, fruits, veggies, salads and protein. I have not exercised yet but plan to soon. I could not sleep the first few days and dry mouth is starting to kick in, it's tolerable. My goal is to lose 60 lbs by the end of the year."

For Weight Loss "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."

For Weight Loss "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!"

For Weight Loss "I went on 4/28/15 and as shocked when I weighed in at 189, I'm 5'7". My walking around weight is typically around 170-175. I started Adipex and went back in June for my check up, I'm down to 174 with steel toes and long sleeve. I was told to avoid the generic and only Adipex, with a coupon it is $50. The energy boost is great, not too much...just don't take one after about 4 or 5 pm. Now, the interesting part...My weight gain was due to consuming alcohol on an almost daily basis...the Adipex supressed my appetite AND supressed my desire to consume alcohol. I can attribute this to the supression effects of the drug and the dry mouth gives you the desire to drink water or a sports drink."

For Obesity "I took Adipex (37.5) from February 2012-April 2012 and in that span of time I went from 300 lbs down to 170 lbs. That is a loss of 130 lbs. I hardly ate anything but grilled chicken, fruit, and powerade. I walked at least 2 miles everyday. I got Pregnant at the end May 2012 so I had to stop taking it. My baby is now 2 years and 5 months and my weight has gone back up to a very uncomfortable 240 lbs. I still exercise regularly but not as often as I should. I have an appointment in 3 weeks to get adipex again and I am hoping and praying that I have the same results as before. This is a great aid in loosing weight for anybody who struggles with loosing weight by diet alone. Wish me luck...will update in 90 days!!!"

For Weight Loss "I started taking adipex 6/30 and it's now 7/4. My weight has not changed. I'm having side effects like chest pain, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue -no energy at all. I still pushed myself to workout and eat right. My weight at weight loss clinic was 228 but when I got on scale at public it said 232. Because of pills serious side effects I have to stop taking pills. Best of luck to you all."

For Weight Loss "After being disgusted with my constant weight gain, I decided to try the Real Adipex-P and not the generic version of it. The generic gave me really bad mood swings and made my heart flutter a lot but the Real brand has worked totally different feeling. I began on June 9th at my all time high weight of 345.4. I have found that once I chose to eat clean and refrain from beef,pork, sodas, and anything white; I got a better outcome. I have to say that we are all different and any weight loss is a plus. I am not boasting but I am happy to report that I weighed in today and I weighed 313.6!! That's a little over 30 pounds in 5 days shy of a month. Ya'll, we can do this. We must not give up and stop trying! I am striving for 150 pounds."

For Obesity "I started taking adipex 37.5 on 6/23/15. My starting weight was 301. As of 06/25/15 I was at 291! Wow! I am very impressed because I have done NO exercise at all. On the other hand, I have NO desire to eat throughout the day. I eat fruit before I take it and drink plenty of water (helps with the dry mouth too), but today (06/26/15) I am not feeling like myself. I was very jittery and weak. I realized that for the past 4 days I've only eaten 2 bags of chips, 2 bananas, and some grilled chicken. I ate something today and immediately starting feeling better. I think I'm going to try to force myself to eat more because my body is not reacting well."

For Weight Loss "My wife started taking Adipex in December of 2014, she finished it up through April 2015 and went from 187 lbs to 152 lbs. She kept to the same 1200 calorie diet she has always done for almost two years, and she works out on a variety of fitness classes to running an hour on a treadmill 3-4 times a week. It is 6/14/15 and I weigh 288 lbs and I am 5'10". I work out 4-5 times a week doing exercises like basketball twice a week for two hours and running two other times a week and lifting twice a week. So I am at the gym 5-6 times a week. Now that it is summer I plan on working out for an hour in the morning 3 times a week of cardio and lift at night."
