For Obesity: Adipex(phentermine) is great for weight loss. I did experience minor side effects (i.e. dry mouth, insomnia.) I have taken this medicine on and off for several years. I noticed rapid weight loss the first time I took it, losing over 30 pounds in the first month. I was 202lbs when I took it the first time and after only 1 month I was down to about 170lbs. I went off of the medicine for several months, didn't exercise and returned to my original eating habits, regaining all of the weight plus some. The second time I took it I didn't experience the same rapid weight loss I had with the first attempt, only getting down to about 182lbs. Going for try #3 but will do it right this time with exercise and diet change for life!

For Weight Loss: I started Adipex two days ago. I'm 21 years old 5' tall and weigh 158lbs. According to my BMI and my doctors visit I am at the breaking point of obesity. I have had many struggles in the past with getting back to my goal weight of 105-110 and decided to give Adipex a shot. Obesity runs in my family and I hope to stop the cycle. I haven't had any side effects so far except for occasional dry mouth so I just drink water which is good anyway. I have had a great experience so far with increased energy and a suppressed appetite. I want to keep up with at least exercising for 30min a day and eating better and hopefully I will see results at the end of month one. I want to be at my goal weight which is a loss of about 50lbs in around 8 months. Wish me luck!

For Weight Loss: I started Adipex yesterday morning & I lost 3 lbs when I weighed today. Dry mouth, but water is good anyway. Lots of energy. No appetite. Force myself to eat. Zumba & walking 4 nights a week is my plan. 251 to 248 in a day!!!! What??!! I'm on my way to being healthy & happier! Just turned 36 & I'm excited.

For Weight Loss: It would be nice if the public was warned of how dangerous it is to have any surgery while taking this medication! I was scheduled to have knee surgery, and forgot to list this as a medicine until I was telling the pre-op nurse my meds. She then went postal on me! Informing me that if I wasn't off of it for 2 weeks before surgery, I could possibly die from high blood pressure. What an eye opener!

For Weight Loss: This is a very good diet pill. I have been able to lose 15 pounds fairly easily combining Adipex with the Atkins diet. I don't have cravings, my appetite is normal and doesn't drive me crazy all day. I've been taking Adipex for about 8 months now and have no side effects whatsoever. I did try the generic brand which was made by a different company and I did have the side effect of not being able to sleep. So I stick with the name brand.

For Obesity: I started dieting on my own in late June of 2012. When I started I weighed about 337lbs. On my own using Visalia shakes I lost about 20lbs. In August of 2012 I started taking Adipex-P 37.5mg. As of today Nov 9, 2012, I am down to 271#. Adipex is great for giving you an advantage and I am really happy with it, but I have made and continue to make better food choices. I cut out all sodas, even diet. I try to eat healthy small meals. I still eat carbs, but I try to limit them. Eventually I plan on eliminating sugar as well. I am never going back to where I was and I plan on exercising and pushing myself for at least another 100-120lbs!

For Weight Loss: Adipex is fantastic. Although I haven't really felt "energized" I'm totally eating A LOT less. I don't have that hungry feeling and it really helps me to make better choices, as I'm not always famished. In 6 weeks, I've lost over 20 lbs, which is something I never thought was possible. I'm really not even worried about coming off of it, as I think I've made a total lifestyle change. I'm never going back to being that fat person again! I've had virtually no side effects, expect I do get headaches. Honestly, I don't think its the pill though, but the fact that I'm not eating a whole lot and my blood sugar is probably lower than normal. I highly recommend this medicine.

For Weight Loss: My husband and I were on Adipex for 3 months before I got pregnant with our son. I had to quit taking it of course. However, our first month I lost 18lbs and my husband lost 29! In the 3 months we were on it we lost a total of 105lbs! It is definetly the best diet pill ever. The only thing I didn't like was that my mouth was always dry. I couldn't go anywhere without a bottle of water in my hand.

For Weight Loss: I have been on it for 4 months now and I lost 44 lbs so far. It makes you eat smaller portions if you try to eat more your stomach will hurt. I'm sweaty and dry mouth all the time which makes me drink more water. I still eat what I want but I try and stay away from soda and sweats much as possible.

For Obesity: I have tried all the fad diets to no avail. I've tried over the counter weight loss pills and nothing has worked since stacker 3 original formula was banned. I was told I would only get Adipex for 3 months. My third check up is tomorrow and I've lost 50lbs so far. The pill is starting to feel like it's losing it's effectiveness. Tomorrow I am going to start a 10 day break in hopes that when I start back up it will be as effective as the first month. I've got another 40 to go, so hopefully it works. It's been great, though. 50 lbs in 2 months when nothing else helped before is very impressive. It's nice hearing all the compliments on the weight loss too.

For Weight Loss: I started taking this in April 2012. I weighed 192.5. It is now October 2012 and I am down to 143!! I take it before breakfast and exercise 2-3 times a week sometimes more, depending on how I feel. The first day is the only time I got jittery at all. No other problems except for dry mouth. I keep a low carb diet with the occasional cheat. But I feel great and never thought I would be down this much weight this soon.

For Weight Loss: Before I started Adipex I was 170lbs at 5'6. I lost 5 lbs on my own and got stuck. I went ahead and started Adipex exactly one week ago and I am down to 155lbs. So happy. I have cut out almost all carbs. I only drink water. No sweets at all. One cup of coffee in the morning. After my daughter goes to school I go on almost a 2 1/2 to 3 hour walk. Anyways just thought my experience might help someone out there. Adipex gave me the boost of energy I needed and my eating habits are so so so much better. Side effects were dry mouth so drink plenty of water. Most side effects go away after the first 5 to 7 days.

For Weight Loss: This was the key to me losing 50 lbs in less than 6 months. I have kept the weight off for 2 1/2 years. I highly recommend talking to your physician about Adipex.

For Obesity: This is a very good method for weight loss. I actually loss 43lbs using this pill along with exercise. It really gives you energy. This is really my 3rd time on this pill. But once your body gets used to it it does not work as well. But overall I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight.

For Weight Loss: Been on Adipex for one week and lost 7lbs. I was skeptical at first but after exercising and dieting with no results, what did I have to lose. Doctor suggested we try it for 30 days. I'm glad I did. Side effects at least for me include dry mouth; constipation and some sleeplessness. I feel that exercise is a daily must. After I exercise, I feel normal; the only difference is that I'm not hungry nor am I interested on the donut by desk or cake down the hall! Another point, you will not be hungry nor interested in food; however you must remain mindful that your body needs fuel to to keep burning; so I find myself getting satisfaction from just half of a Kind bar (before I could eat 3 at once).

For Weight Loss: I am a 6'3", 37 year old white male (not sure what risk factors that lands me higher in, but it seems certain portions of the population are more prone to certain issues than others). Diabetes, heart Disease run in the family and I have asthma and a shot lower back. Recipe for obesity. Long story short. 2.5 months ago I was 322lbs. 2 weeks ago, I was 284 lbs. Shoot hoops once a week, and stick to 1800 calorie a day diet. Beyond that, no special "restrictions". Oatmeal for breakfast, chicken/tossed green salad for lunch and whatever fits under my remaining carb window for dinner. Only complaint is Ohio only allows 3 months of use. No side effects after week 1.

For Weight Loss: I started taking Adipex on June 18, 2012. It has worked wonders. The only side effect I have had is terrible dry mouth, but I drinks lots of water and chew gum to help with that. I skip one day a week of not taking the medicines, and to date I have lost 20 pounds. That's amazing 20 pounds in 25 days. I do exercise daily. I walk 3 miles everyday. I have lots of energy. When I first started taking the pills I was not hungry and had to remind myself to eat. I did have a little trouble sleeping. In all this has been a great experience and can't wait until I hit my goal weight.

For Weight Loss: I started Adipex 5/1/12 at 354 pounds. I have no metabolism but my thyroid levels are normal so no amount of exercise worked for me. It would keep me from gaining but couldn't lose any. In two months I'm down to 344 but I can tell it is starting to not work as well. I think I'm about to stop weekends so my body doesn't get used to it so much. I'm hoping to get back to around 200 where I was in high school and very fit.

For Weight Loss: I started taking Adipex on 5/4/12. My first visit was 5/3 and I weighed in at 165.2lbs! The first couple of days I was only taking half a pill, and I did feel a little jittery, but nothing major. The first two weeks I was on it I did the 30 day shred four days a week and ate really good, but I got off track and haven't eaten healthy since, or worked out. My first visit after I started I lost 11.8 pounds. I actually weighed myself about a hour ago, and I weighed 145lbs. Let me just say that this medicine did not give me energy, and it didn't mess with my sleep at all. It only messed up my naps, which I loved because I have a 10 month old who doesn't sleep good at night. Just wanted to come and share my results. Hope I helped!

For Obesity: I went to a very expensive weight loss clinic. I followed a strict eating plan while I took the medicine. I'm over 50 and nothing has worked for me for the last 8 years. It was because of the Adipex. I lost 25 lbs in 12 weeks. I have been maintaining for 5 weeks now. I still follow the strict eating plan, but not being on the medicine, I'm not losing weight. I wanted to make sure I could maintain the loss. I'm going to my PCP later this month and am going to do another round and lose the final 10-15 lbs that I need to lose. This medicine just "shuts your mouth", that's the best way to describe it. It does give you energy, it focuses your mind. I was worried about how I would feel after stopping, I weaned for about 5 days with a half pill.

For Obesity: My highest weight has been 339lbs and I am a 5'7. I have always been overweight since 1st grade. I have degenerative joint disease and have had 6 knee surgeries. I decided to get weight loss surgery after I found out the discs in my spine were degenerating. I started my 3 month physician weight loss requirement per my insurance. My doctor gave me Adipex and put me on weight watchers. I lost 17lbs in 1 month. I do not exercise because it is painful. I have done weight watchers in the past, but this time it has been easy because I am "HUNGRY" is gone. My craving for sweets all the time is gone also. It truly WORKS!! The only negative is dry mouth.
