"I started 37.5mg today (was afraid to start because I was afraid of the "upper" aspect) but finally did. I'm not sure of my weight but I feel "blobby". I ordered a scale today and will update this but wanted the first say it has a limited upper effect. Nothing like I expected. Smooth, energized, and even helped my mood. I'm looking forward to results as I'm going home to work out now!"

"Hi. I have been taking phentermine 30mg since 23rd April 2016. I have lost 7lbs I currently weigh like 205 I need to get down to 140 really. My symptoms have been dry mouth, interrupted sleep as I wake up like sometimes before 5 and can't get back to sleep. I was told the sleep pattern will change soon. I have had weight loss which is good but last few days my weight is staying the same where as before everyday would go down at least 1lb. Anyway I guess maybe it is slowing down and it will end up being 2 -3lbs of weight loss a week. But I guess that's healthier anyway. Oh I am in UK I think that's why your dosage is higher. They have restrictions here on some of the medication you have there that's the problem I think."

"Hi everyone I asked my doctor last week if he could suggest anything to help me along. I was losing weight but I platued and it wouldn't budge. Two years ago I weighted in at 326 then bounced around 260-280 lbs. Even though I worked out and ate clean it wasn't enough. The date of my appointment I weighted 266 i started my first dose on Friday. Today is Monday and I now weigh 256. My goal is to get down to150. Wish me luck and I will keep everyone updated. Peace"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "hi / i started the pills on tuesday, 26 april 2016 / i have read all the reviews and no one said that you should only be on the medication for 30 days / then off / my doctor told me that I could use it again after 6 months / so twice a year / also, before he would give me the script I had to have an ekg / which I had / I do not think much of your doctors if they did not give you the ekg / I have lost 7 lbs so far / I do not eat after 6 pm and only drink milk or water"

"Hello all, my name is Brittany. I have PCOS and have struggled with my weight my entire life. I started Phentermine June of 2015. I thought it was some miracle drug, which it is not. So don't go in thinking it will cure fatness. I didn't take it consistently, or workout like I should have. So I quit all together. Although I still struggle, I have a different mindset now. I started my journey again Jan 13, 2016 at 274, then started Phentermine Feb 22, 2016 at 269lbs. I did a lot of slacking that month, so when I went in for my 3/31 check up I weighed 258. I lost more that that, then I gained. As of this morning I weighed 247lbs. I now have more realist goals, aiming for 1-2lbs a week. will check for update."

"I just started this for the 2nd time the first time I only took it for a month right before I got married 6 years ago.... I shortly after stopped going to the weight dr. I had been on adderall for the same thing for almost 2 years and hit a plateau right around 190 to 180 and moved away so I hadn't been back til now. Upon weighing in I was informed I gained back 20 lbs sitting at 211lb and only 5'6". I have noticed I have been way more energized last couple of days and basically have to force myself to eat now. 1st day I had 2 bites of yogurt with granola for breakfast... a handful of wheat thins for lunch and a boudin link for dinner. And not once felt hungry I started feeling loopy for lack of calories by the end of the day..."

"Your stories have eased my nervousness today. Today I was prescribed Phentermine by my doctor and was told it was an amphetamine. I was instantly on alert. I have never been a pill popper, so up to an hour ago i had my doubts, scared and my mind was going through the what if's. Diet and exercise just isn't enough anymore however so I must try a new angle. I am excited now to know some of the weight loss goals you all have met and achieved. WOW!. I can't weight (lol) to pick up my script tomorrow. so I am 5'3" weighing in at 206 and my goal is 140 anything less and I will look too thin but i'll figure that out if and when I make my goal. wish me luck and maybe by my birthday in December ( the big 50) i will be in a bikini. Oh! Yah!"

"I started taking Phentermine 37.5 last Saturday 4/16 so hasn't been a week yet. I did lost my appetite I barley eat anything. Trying to stick around 500 Carlories per day. I have PCOS and last blood work that I got done my insulin levels were out of control. I am on 1500 mg of metformin also. My start weight was 180lbs I weight myself at home this morning and it was 176lbs but I don't think my scale at home is right so I will just wait to go in 4 weeks for an follow up with my doctor and see if I lost any weight. My goal weight is around 130 lbs. No Side effects besides the dry mouth. Will keep you guys updated."

"I began taking phentermine three days ago. The only side effect I have experienced has been dry mouth. Biotene mouthwash and mouth spray have helped along with lots of water. My appetite is suppressed greatly, which is wonderful. My biggest issue has been snacking late at night. My nights have not been filled with thoughts of restaurants and gourmet meals. I'm not much of a sweets eater; I love good cooking. I didn't even crave anything for the past couple of nights. It's been two days, and I'm down three pounds already. I weighed in at Weight Watchers today, and I'm exactly 270 today. I'll update in a week. Feeling excited!"

"Hey everyone! I found all of these post super helpful! I just started phentermine 37.5 yesterday 04/12/2016 and I'm super excited to see how it will work for me. I currently weigh 248 and it drives me crazy that I let myself gain so much weight. I have always been smaller in size & I gained a lot of weight fast. I first tried toprimate but I took myself off of it because it made my face and hands feel like the pins & needles after your foot falls asleep! So far with phentermine I have had a super dry mouth, hopefully that is the only side effect I have to deal with. I will re post in about a month with my progress. Wish me luck!!!"

"Growing up I was always skinny with age I've gained and now weigh about 220. Although I do have curves that I didn't have before the extra weight is a lil depressing. I started adipex a lil over a week ago. I haven't weighed myself yet but I don't see any significant change. I'd like to get down to 170 or 175 but as long as I can get the extra fat off in the areas I want & stay healthy I'd be satisfied with that. I exercise a little bit but not much and I need to drink more water than what I an now. Wish me luck."

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I took Adipex two years ago and loss 70 pounds! I'm 5'11 and went from size 20 to size 10/12. Dont let that 1-2 pounds per week loss without exercising fool you into thinking you dont have to. You should at least walk every day or some sweat producing exercise 3-4 days or week to get the most out of it. I used the seated elliptical 4-5 days per week. Its quick if you commit to exercise, water and the meds. No eating after 800pm. I've lost from 2lbs to 21pounds per month with exercise. I've gained 20 pounds back over the two years and am now wearing a 14. I went back on Adipex a month and a half ago and plan to get down to a 10/12 by June 30th. ;-)"

Adipex-P (phentermine): "I was prescribed Apidex today 03/07/2016. I have taken my first pill so I really can't say right now. I weighed in on today at 278.6 pounds. I am 5ft. I am 45 years old. I am also taking a water pill called lasix because of fluid retention so I am looking forward to sharing my progress. I will go weigh in two weeks just to see. I have also decided no breads no sodas no red meats no fried foods and sweets. Praying for some results. Going to start walking on 03/10/16 to see what results I can see in two weeks."

"This is my second time around with Phentermine 37.5mg. 5 yrs ago I lost 38 lbs in 5 weeks. I stayed on a high protein low card diet (chicken, chicken and more chicken) and 1 pill a day, with 1 cheat meal a week. Unfortunately, I gained the weight back because of self stupidity. I started again 4/5/16 with Phentermine once a day with a B12 vitamin concoction injection once a week at weigh in at the doc's office. This time I'm adding cardio/swimming/weight training 4 days a week. I experienced no side effects, I have no appetite, cravings and lot's of energy. I take my pill after breakfast, about 11:30/noon to ward off the late night snack attacks and still allows me to go to bed around 11pm. I highly recommend this medication."
