Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I just started using Fastin and I like it better than other diet pills I've tried such as Hydroxycut because it doesn't make me feel sick/ nauseous. BUT it definitely makes my heart rate skyrocket, so for the first couple days I would only take half a pill at a time. A full pill makes my hands tremble and I can hear my pulse in my brain.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I took a pill this morning with some tea, and while I was eating breakfast I noticed my heart rate sky rocket, I don't know if this happened because I took fastin on an empty stomach or what, but this is a little scary! It literally feels like my heart is going to jump out of my chest! At first I didn't think I could be reacting to this drug so quick but apparently it's a very quick release type of pill. I can say that I'm not hungry and didn't finish my breakfast but at what cost?! Maybe I should try taking a quarter of the tablet, but I think I'm a little to scared and will probably throw the bottle away.. what a waste of $40 oh well better 40 bucks lost than a heart attack. Also I bought these over the counter at a Rite Aid.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been working out for the past year and a half. I've taken many kinds of diet pills and let me tell you this is by far the BEST thing. I've lost 35lbs and I feel wonderful. I do feel a little jittery but I can handle that. It's great and I hope it never goes away. Love it!

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I have been taking fastin for a little over two weeks. I started at 150 and im currently 140. Fastin causes me not to be hungry as much and gives me energy. I do feel a little jittery sometimes and have a funny taste in my mouth. Overall im pleased with my weight loss and will continue using fastin .

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I started taking Fastin a few days ago after I read so many good reviews...I must say that I did take the advice of so many others and started with half of the pill. It seemed to put me in the best mood and my energy level went through the roof. Not to mention..I wasn't hungry at all. Yes it did make me feel a bit jittery so I drank a lot of water and had to pee quite often. Don't drink anything with caffiene in it while taking this because it makes you even more jittery, plus if you work in the heat be careful because I felt like I was having hot flashes but wow...it is definitely worth it. Lost a couple of lbs already. Well worth it for me.

Fastin (phentermine) for Obesity: I've been over weight all my life. I started recently getting really bad back pain and chest pains, I went on a scale and 287lbs! I was emotional, devastated and embarrassed! I've tried everything but I don't give nothing enough time. I don't have any patience. Tried Jenny Craig regular diets, diet pills, I had a personal trainer..nothing never worked. So started taking Fastin last Friday I'm not starving myself I'm eating fruits veggies, lots of water and so far 6 days later I've already dropped 8 lbs! I'm so happy I still have a very long way to go but I do recommend Fastin.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: After suffering from bulimia for many years and not being able to control my binge eating I started taking Fastin. I only take 1 1/2 pills a day (I'm only 115 lbs and not looking for significant weight loss) and that is enough to help me fight my urge to stress eat. In fact when I was taking 2 pills a day I found myself forgetting to eat. I still feel a little jittery after taking them.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: I was stuck at the same weight for over 2 weeks. I was working out over 60 min a day. I decided to try Fastin and within days started losing weight again. I have been taking it for 5 weeks and have lost 10 lbs. That's good enough to get my approval. It really helps me not be hungry throughout the day. And gives a noticeable increase in energy. I have noticed some jitteriness about 1 hr after taking it. But it does not last long and to me is worth the weight loss.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: Phentermine has worked very well for me and my own personal situation. I was formerly anorexic/bulimic with a habit of severe calorie restriction, phentermine has worked amazingly. My metabolism went into hibernation after 5 yrs of damage & I gained 180lbs post rehab. By taking phentermine daily, I have the metabolism of a nomal 22 year old girl. I lost 30lbs/90 days initially. Now I'm losing 30lbs/month. Occasional moments of feeling weird/adrenaline rush is worth it.

Fastin (phentermine) for Weight Loss: When I started taking this medicine in December along with Metformin and Simvastin I lost 66 lbs. I started at 306lbs and now I weigh 240lbs. I am unsure if the drug is having any effect on me any longer - I will know when I see my doctor again. Perhaps I am just at a wall for the time being. Anyhow I think it works great.
