Reviews for Adipex-P
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!"

For Weight Loss "Day 2: Only side effect is headache but should go away. Lost 3 pounds, most likely water weight. Appetite decreased, but still want to eat. On Day one, had little appetite, and no desire to eat. Will have to count calories. Will follow up in few days."

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!!"

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!"
