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."

For Weight Loss "I tried Adipex about a year ago and in the first month I lost 20 lbs! I went to the gym about 3 days a week, and I was on a 1200 calorie limitation from my doctor. I drank mostly water(added the flavor packets for taste). Unfortunately I feel off of the Adipex wagon only after a month. I not only gained all of my weight back, but I gained 15 more pounds on top of that due to a lot of fast food. I just started back on Adipex 2 days ago and already I have lost 3 lbs!"

For Weight Loss "I have been on Adipex for a little over a month and I have lost 12 pounds. At first I was not hungry what so ever but slowly over time my appetite has come back but I have been making healthy choices. My doctor said it's normal while on it for the three months you lose anywhere from 30-60 lbs just depends how committed you are. I know that the state of Ohio only allows you to use Adipex for three months at a time with a six month break and if you need to you can continue the medication after the six months are up. "

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 "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."
